OPPO Air Glass is a monocle smart glass that functions as another display


Last week, OPPO hinted that it would have some big things to unveil during its INNO Day 2021. Among them would be a retractable mobile camera, mobile chip, and likely a foldable device. Well, OPPO has officially revealed some of its new products so let's take a look.

One of the most interesting things at the launch has to be the OPPO Air Glass. According to OPPO, this is an 'assisted reality' (aR, with the small 'a') smart glass, and said that it offers a "near-term, practical alternative to consumers to experience and enjoy some of the benefits of AR". OPPO's smart glass is unique in that it has a monocle design (one eye only). You can stick this to a pair of regular glasses via a magnetic attachment.

So, what's different with this aR smart glass? Allegedly, aR is different in that it doesn't overlay visuals onto objects or areas that you can see. Instead, it displays static 2D visuals that you can't exactly interact with. The only difference is that the display is right in the field of vision of your right eye. In other words, it's essentially an extra screen that shows you information. This can be things like your daily schedule, weather info, real-time speech-to-text translation, and more.

It's quite a neat concept, so do check the video above if you want to find out more. But what do you think about it so far? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
