Xiaomi does and tries in many things, and now it seems that the company’s next possible product could be smart glasses. We said “possible” because the company made it clear that these are currently more conceptual than real, but it gives us an insight into what the company could have planned for the future.
In terms of design, Xiaomi has not given everything, and that’s a good thing, because it looks more normal, which helps it blend in with normal clothing and fashion. It will have capabilities you would expect from smart glasses, such as showing notifications in the lens, making calls, using it for navigation, taking photos and even translating text in real time.
According to Xiaomi, these glasses will use micro-LEDs for the backlight, whereby the display chip itself measures 2.4 mm x 2.02 mm and is therefore the size of a grain of rice and is therefore very light. Xiaomi also claims that the glasses use optical waveguide technology that can refract light 180 degrees to ensure accuracy in irradiating our eyes.
Sounds pretty cool, but at the moment it sounds more like a wish list of things that Xiaomi would like to put in data glasses. We have no idea when the company might actually do this, but this announcement suggests that they are considering it.
