At the just finished India Mobile Congress 2023, JioGlass, the company’s mixed reality headset that supports both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) content, was on display. The telecom giant had previously unveiled the smart glasses during its annual general meeting (AGM) in 2020, and they are expected to launch in India shortly. JioGlass can show content on a sizable “virtual screen,” just like other AR glasses. On the gadget, users may quickly transition between AR and VR modes.
Previous to its launch in the nation, the business unveiled its future JioGlass mixed reality wearable device at this year’s IMC 2023. Jio has so far launched the JioGlass and the reasonably priced JioDive VR headset, both of which can display virtual reality material. It is anticipated that the latter will cost more.
Although the JioGlass’s price has not yet been revealed by the firm, it is expected to compete with goods like the AjnaXR Pro and AjnaXR SE, which are available for Rs. 1,54,999 and Rs. 84,999, respectively. The Indian IT giant Tesseract, a startup, developed JioGlass before being bought. According to the official website, the item is marked as “coming soon” and may become accessible in the upcoming months.
Dual full-HD (1,920×1,080 pixels) monitors with a 40-degree field of view are featured on the future JioGlass mixed reality device. These displays may create a 100-inch virtual screen to watch movies or sports. TÜV Rheinland has also approved the glasses to have low emissions of blue light, which lessens eye strain. According to the Tesseract website, you can also utilize magnetic prescription glasses that need to be fitted by an optician.
Both a proximity sensor and a nine-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensor are included in the JioGlass smart eyewear. It contains an unidentified processor, takes five seconds to boot up, and can run for four hours in 3D mode. It also includes a 4,000mAh battery.
With its USB Type-C port, JioGlass may be connected to a Windows or Mac computer or an iOS or Android smartphone that supports DisplayPort (DP) connectivity. For taking voice calls on the headset, the device’s built-in microphone is utilized.
