Introducing Xiaomi Smart Glasses concept glasses – Android glasses with micro LED display
According to a Xiaomi spokesperson, there are still no plans for There is no production and sale of Xiaomi Smart Glasses, but in the introduction of its product, this Chinese company mentioned many details of the mechanism and technologies used in the manufacture of these glasses and creates the suspicion that it is not unlikely that we will see its release in the market in the future.
Smart Glasses, like Ray-Ban Stories has a relatively conventional appearance and at first glance you may mistake it for a regular pair of glasses. Despite having many features, Xiaomi puts a lot of emphasis on its lightness. At 51 grams, these glasses are not too heavy, although they are slightly heavier than the Ray-Ban Stories. But what distinguishes Xiaomi’s concept glasses from Ray-Ban Stories is related to the display of Smart Glasses.
Unlike Ray-Ban Stories, whose lenses are like normal glasses, Smart Glasses lenses have a display that allows It provides the use of artificial intelligence capabilities. According to the manufacturer, in order to achieve the format of a normal glasses, there are many challenges in the field of imaging and the arrangement of internal components in Xiaomi’s way, and to overcome these challenges, Xiaomi decided to choose a MicroLED display for these glasses, while Reducing the space required for design, the weight of the device will also be reduced.
Xiaomi claims that without a doubt Using MicroLED has been the best option for implementing the imaging system in these glasses. Just like OLED panels, each pixel in microLED also emits light, and this light emission feature results in brighter screens with deeper blacks. The interesting thing is that, compared to OLED panels, micro-LEDs have a simpler structure, higher pixel density, and a longer lifespan, which makes it easier to integrate them with the display.
According to Xiaomi’s claim, the display chip used in Smart Glasses has dimensions of 2.02 x 2.4 mm, and the display itself can be seen under the microscope almost the size of a grain of rice. This display with 4 micron pixels fits easily in the eyeglass frame. In order for enough light to pass through the complex optical structures of the lenses (even under strong sunlight) before reaching the user’s eyes, Xiaomi has used a monochrome display (with a maximum brightness of 2 million nits) instead of a color display.
In making the display of these smart glasses, a type of technology known as “optical wavelength technology” has been used. Thanks to this technology, after the 180-degree refraction of the light, the MicroLED display passes its rays with great precision through the microscopic abrasive structure of the lenses and delivers them to the user’s eyes.
The abrasive structure engraved on the inner surface of the lenses breaks the light in a unique way and directs it safely to the user’s eye. In the refraction process, the light rays are bounced countless times and this allows the human eye to see a complete image. All this process is done in Smart Glasses inside a lens (unlike some similar products that use a system consisting of several lenses, mirrors or half mirrors to accomplish this process).
According to the descriptions mentioned So, you might think that Xiaomi smart glasses are just a secondary display for your smartphone, but the truth is that 497 parts (including miniature sensors and communication modules) were used in making Xiaomi Smart Glasses, and it is more correct to call this product a device. Let’s call it an independent wearable, because in addition to displaying the main notifications, incoming calls, etc., these smart glasses can independently perform complete functions such as navigation, photography, teleprompting, and translating text and photos at the same time.
The smart assistant XiaoAi plays an important role in this device and determines the main method of interaction between the user and the glasses so that, according to Xiaomi, these smart glasses can “display the most important information when it is needed.” Leave it.” To clarify the issue, it is not bad to check the notifications category. Of course, if the new Xiaomi glasses want to bring all the notifications of your smartphone on the lens of the glasses, you will be confused. This is where XiaoAi’s smart assistant comes into action and arranges that only the most important notifications (such as smart home alerts, essential information from office applications, messages from important contacts, etc.) are displayed on the lens of the glasses.
One of the most natural uses of smart glasses is making calls. When calling your smartphone, while the call is transferred to the glasses, even the number of the caller is displayed on the lens of the glasses. The presence of a microphone and speaker in the body of the glasses has made conversation through it possible. As mentioned, navigation is one of the other functions of Smart Glasses, and these glasses facilitate this task by displaying roads and maps in front of the user’s eyes.
The 5 megapixel camera installed in the front part of the frame, in addition to photography, can also be used to translate the text in the photo. The light placed next to the camera lights up when the camera is activated and informs the people around of the possibility of taking pictures in that place. Thanks to the exclusive translation algorithm, Xiaomi smart glasses can translate audio to text at the same time.
The manufacturing company did not mention the name of the processor of the device, but we know that the processing in this device is entrusted to a 4-core chip (based on the design of ARM processors). Battery, touch pad, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Android operating system are other features of these smart glasses.
Experts see this smart glasses as a conceptual device. In this way, there is a possibility that such glasses will not reach the production stage at all. But the introduction of Smart Glasses only a few days after Ray-Ban Stories could indicate the fact that Xiaomi in It is an attempt to present itself as one of the main players in the field of augmented reality.
