Most people still think that the Augmented Reality is an abstract and exotic technology. They perceive it like all those animate holograms, interactive displays, and virtual 3D models which are just a part of science-fiction or scenes from fantastic Hollywood movies. In fact augmented reality has been around for years and these things do already exist.
Meet the new Bose sunglasses with built-in audio speakers which pretend to replace your favorite headphones. This device has a built-in audio augmented reality platform. Eventually, as the company states, these sunglasses will evolve to let the wearers access to interact with virtual assistant which will navigate them from place to place giving hints about attractions or restaurants. Now they are just usual sunglasses with built into each arm speakers letting you stream tunes and listen to podcasts.
With integrated mics you can make hands- and ears-free calls and talk on the phone. Despite a battery and speakers, the temples are quite thin and weight only 45 grams.
The glasses are equipped with a Bluetooth connection. You can control Siri and Google Assistant, calls and commands with a control button which is on the right temple. Since sunglasses have technical stuffing, it is not recommended taking them in the pool, but they can easily withstand the light rain.
Each temple has a speaker where the music comes from without being heard by people around. Isn’t it a miracle that music is intended only for you even if you don’t wear earphones?
The sound is clear, perfect and impressive without need to put anything into the ears. People standing next to you can hear the music moderately only when it is playing to the fullest.
This cool tech gadget announced to be shatter and scratch resistant and goes in two styles Alto and Rondo, both in matte black.
The rechargeable battery lasts 3.5 hours when listening to audio continuously, or up to 12 hours on standby.
Bose is planning also to make prescription lenses as well as implement the audio technology into bike or ski helmets.
