On Inno day 2020, Oppo launched the number of innovative products. One of them was Oppo AR Glass 2021 whereas the attraction of the event was a smartphone with rollable display. Last year the company introduced the first iteration of its AR glasses. This year it’s back with the improved version. The previous iteration was mostly like a conceptual product. But this time, the company is delivering a product that looks like an ordinary glass with a slim profile.
Oppo AR Glass 2021 Overview
Display and Design
The AR glass 2021 features a 0.71” OLED display, which has its light refracted by a spectroscope to the eye. It uses Birdbath optical technology for 98% increased brightness uniformity and is 53% superior to its predecessor. However, the company didn’t include a field of view estimate, but says the glass provides the same viewing experience as watching a 90” screen just three meters away.
The new Glass boasts a split design, something that makes it both compact and lighter than the previous HoloLens-style model. Likewise, the company said the 2021 model is 75% lighter than its predecessor.
Camera and Other Features
The glasses feature binocular fish-eye cameras that capture the environment around you. These cameras are paired with a ToF sensor which enables centimeter level accuracy within 1-degree.
Users can pair the glasses with their phone and use the device as a touchpad. You can track your hands and fingers. 21 unique markers on each hand and four on one finger. Therefore, you can capture even the most subtle movements.
Further, it packs a customized large-amplitude speaker onboard with a unique semi-open cavity acoustic design. Furthermore, the glasses come with OPPO’s voice assistant Breeno built-in for voice commands.
