Xiaomi Smart Glasses
A few years ago, on behalf of the future of technology smart glasses were widely concerned, but because of the large size, poor battery life, weak function, and other issues delayed the production of popular.
Yesterday evening, the Xiaomi cell phone brought a new technology concept new preview, said a glance to see the future, this morning, this new product was officially announced. This new product is not a cell phone product, but a Xiaomi Smart Glasses, Xiaomi cell phone issued a text saying.
“Xiaomi smart glasses exploration version unveiled! Seemingly mediocre glasses, but has a magical experience. Wear it, the picture leaps out of the eyes. Using innovative MicroLED light waveguide technology. Let the smart glasses achieve miniaturization.”
From the text with pictures, Xiaomi this smart eyes in the case of doing the appearance and ordinary glasses no difference can support calls, navigation, photography, translation and other kinds of work, can be said to science fiction movie props to reality.
Xiaomi Smart Glasses is a concept product, so Xiaomi did not announce the release time. According to the introduction, Xiaomi smart glasses exploration version using MicroLED light waveguide technology, the sesame seed-sized MicroLED display hidden in the frame, through the advanced light waveguide lens, so that the light to achieve spatial transfer, the picture jumped in front of the eyes, so that the smart glasses realize miniaturization, the whole machine 51g weight, support calls, display, navigation, photography, translation.
Xiaomi Smart Glasses Explorer Edition, to achieve a similar appearance to ordinary glasses, to the display and stacking, brought unprecedented challenges. To this end, the future-oriented MicroLED display technology was chosen to significantly reduce the volume of the structure, the display is the size of a sesame seed, perfectly hidden in the frame.
To keep the light bright enough when it finally reaches the human eye through the complex optical structure, the display is a more efficient pure green display solution and can operate with a brightness of 2 million nits. Although the same as OLED is self-emitting, the use of inorganic material life is higher.
Optical Waveguide technology is a black technology that allows light to be twisted 180 degrees. The MicroLED screen image hidden in the frame of the glasses is reflected and diffused countless times through the microscopic grating structure of the optical waveguide lens, and is precisely transmitted to the human eye.
The lenticular structure etched into the inner surface of the lens allows light to be fully reflected especially, directing light to the human eye. The reflection process is accompanied by numerous simultaneous diffusions of light, which allows the human eye to see the image from the entire lenticular area, greatly extending the wearing tolerance.
This is all done inside a single lens, rather than using complex multiple lenses, mirrors, or half-reflective lenses as in existing products. While significantly reducing the size and weight of the device, optical waveguide technology is the only technology that allows smart glasses to approach the form of traditional eyewear.
Xiaomi Smart Glasses integrates 497 microsensors and communication modules, so it is not just a “second screen” for cell phones, but a new intelligent terminal with independent operation. In addition to basic notification display and call, it can also independently perform functions such as navigation, photography, teleprompter, image, and self-researched voice translation in real-time.
Due to the special nature of the glasses, Xiaomi has also developed key interaction logic to avoid disturbance as much as possible in normal times and to display important information in time at critical moments.
For example, the “message notification” function, a brain to throw all the push on the phone to the eyes is inappropriate, so Xiaomi smart glasses will filter only the most important messages (such as smart home alarm, office software’s urgent information, VIP contact information, etc.) to avoid excessive disturbance of users.
Calling is the most natural use scenario for smart glasses, where you can directly see the other party’s number during an incoming call and use the built-in dual beamforming microphone and speaker to allow both parties to hear each other.
Navigation is very useful in driving and cycling scenarios. Xiaomi smart glasses present the road and map in real-time so that you don’t have to take your eyes off the road, which is safe and convenient.
Using the camera in front of the glasses, you can also quickly take pictures and take pictures to translate. Using the built-in microphone and the Xiaomi AI Lab machine translation team’s algorithm, you can also achieve the function of real-time voice translation, converting the other party’s words into text and translation in real-time, which is very convenient when traveling. The indicator light will light up when the camera is working to remind the subject to protect privacy.
To achieve these functions, the glasses need to be integrated with a quad-core ARM processor, battery, touchpad, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module, etc., running the Android operating system. In the integration of these functions at the same time, the whole machine weighs only 51g.
