Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi Officially introduced the company’s first pair of smart glasses this Tuesday (14), despite no plans to sell it.
The Xiaomi Smart Glass combines an imaging system and sensor with a tiny MicroLED screen. With it, they are able to display messages and notifications, transit routes, in addition to making calls, capturing photos or translating text in real time.
This model works independently of other devices like smartphones, and has a 5MP front camera that just takes pictures. An illuminated beacon indicates when it is on to prevent breach of privacy.
According to the manufacturer, MicroLED technology was chosen not only for the savings in space and lightness (the specs weigh 51 grams), but also for the higher pixel density and longer panel life.
