The latest version of Rokid Glass is 40 percent smaller than the version shown off last year. Even so, these should not be regarded as mainstream hardware. Like so many other AR glasses we’ve seen in recent years,the devices are designed to be used as “an open hardware and software platform where all clients and partners can build industrial and enterprise software use-cases. Various applications include manufacturing, product inspection, field service and remote conferencing.”
Rokid will be showing off Project Aurora, the above goggle-looking hardware, which is designed to offer a sort of surrogate for your existing hardware — things like PCs and tablets. It’s a way, I suppose to get away from the screen without actually, you know, getting away from the screen.
By leveraging the ever-increasing computing power of mobile devices, Project Aurora supplements these robust experiences by providing a lightweight form factor, industry-leading display quality, and multimodal handsfree input. Project Aurora will connect consumers to rich, immersive AR content and experiences that were previously unattainable with such a lightweight smart glass, and we’re excited to share how the future looks through it.”
