Beats Apple to the punch

Xiaomi has been showing off its wireless AR glasses prototype. 

The Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition weighs 126g and adopts Xiaomi-developed high-speed interconnection buses to achieve high-speed data connection from smartphone to AR glasses. It is built on Snapdragon XR2 Gen 1 Platform and featuring Xiaomi's proprietary low-latency communication link, these Snapdragon Spaces XR Developer Platform-supported glasses.

All this offers a wireless latency of as low as 3ms1 between the smartphone device to the glasses, and a wireless connection with full link latency as low as 50ms2 which is comparable to wired solutions.

The AR glasses are built from magnesium-lithium alloy, carbon fiber parts, and a self-developed silicon-oxygen anode battery. It also has shedloads of settings to make sure you get a good image.

Xiaomi Wireless AR Glasses claims to have built the industry's first "retina-level" display. As with high-end display concepts, there exists a "critical value" quality threshold for AR glasses. When angular resolution or PPD (pixels per degree) approaches 60, the human eye cannot distinguish granularity. The PPD of the Xiaomi Wireless AR Glasses is 58, which is the industry-leading closest to meeting this quality specification.

Using a free-form optical module that comprises a pair of MicroOLED screens, Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass comes with free-form light-guiding prisms to achieve a clear picture display. These free-form prisms are capable of performing complex light refraction in a limited volume. The content displayed on the screen is reflected by three surfaces within the light-guiding prisms, resulting in a final presentation in front of the user's eyes.

Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass also features an innovative self-researched micro gesture interaction that enables one-handed, highly-precise pure gesture interaction. This kind of interaction showcases one of the directions that Xiaomi believes human-computer interaction will take in the future.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on price or availability but we suspect it will be very expensive.
