Xiaomi introduces smart glasses. They look like a gadget from the arsenal of James Bond

-

Google has already tried and failed with the release of universal smart glasses. Xiaomi does not even try it, but presents the device directly as a camera that you wear on your face.

So instead of developing a smart glasses accessory that goes completely unnoticed, they launch a product that from afar “screams” as video camera glasses, spy accessory, etc. “screams”. Well, the folks at Xiaomi have done just that and launched an accessory that will describe you as the Borg character that was just teleported from the Star Trek universe.

Instead of the visor being integrated into the lens of the glasses, we have an attached screen that you look at through a prism that can be described as such, but not a discrete, invisible device. Also, the camera looks like it was cut out of the back of a cell phone, complete with the appropriate embellishments.

The result is a AR /VR device that can be photographed on the go, at least as long as you do not have a problem showing it to your counterpart, as if privacy and personal detachment were completely unknown concepts in the universe you live in.

Starting from the idea that stubbornly showing a photo/video camera integrated into not-so-smart glasses is not necessarily a taboo subject, Xiaomi engineers simply ignored the reasons why the first generation of Google Glass failed before it got into the pockets of ordinary people.

The product, called Xiaomi Mijia, does not even try to look discreet, instead relying on the idea that a sufficiently eye-catching presentation will make the new gadget easier to accept in certain situations.

Aside from the not-so-discreet design, the main attraction is the least visible thing, a micro-OLED screen that can be seen through the prism above the lens of the glasses. With a resolution comparable to a smartwatch screen, it offers a minimalist interface optimized for left-right navigation.

The highlight, however, is the large photo module, which is divided into a 50MP main camera and an 8MP periscope camera. The latter allows you to take pictures with optical zoom, with 5x being more than enough for the needs of a casual spy.

Among the drawbacks is that the frame of the glasses only has room for a 1020 mAh battery, which is enough for about 1.5 hours of continuous filming. The camera is supported by AI technologies to optimize the image quality.

Xiaomi promises to start shipping the new Mijia Glass product on August 3 at a price of $370, initially to buyers in China who have funded the Kickstarter project.
