With its Glasses, Lenovo is aiming for the consumer market.
The business unveiled a tonne of new and forthcoming items at the Lenovo Tech Life | IFA event that will either ship in late 2022 or in 2023. Lenovo’s response to Apple’s long-rumored Apple Glasses, the Lenovo Glasses T1, was one of the more fascinating technological innovations displayed.
These glasses produce a new display right in front of your eyes using augmented reality technology. The display isn’t just some blurry, fading screen either; it employs Micro OLED with a frequency of 60Hz and boasts a resolution of 1920 x 1080 per eye. Those with weak eyesight, like myself, won’t be left in the dark either because the Glasses T1 contain lenses
The display from any PC, laptop, or other device with a USB Type-C connection is transferred to the glasses’ field of view and takes the place of the screen once you plug the Lenovo Glasses into it. You may use the built-in UI of the glasses to access a variety of apps and programmes. The connected device becomes a touchscreen for navigating the main screen.
The primary screen can be locked in place so you can gaze away from the screen and at something else by using the buttons on the side of the glasses to choose between moving with your head and locking the screen in place. Additionally, the glasses have built-in speakers with volume controls, making them ideal for viewing movies or listening to music.
The fact that there is currently no direct means to record or show views from these glasses on another device, such a PC, is the single significant drawback.
The Lenovo Glasses T1 will launch in a few chosen locations outside of China in 2023 after originally arriving there in late 2022 as the Lenovo Yoga Glasses. Although a price has not yet been officially announced, the business is aiming for less than $500 (about £430 or AU$729), which is in keeping with making it consumer-friendly.
