Rokid Glass 2 Is the Next Generation Augmented Reality Glasses
Devices for working in virtual reality are constantly improving and offer completely new possibilities. In January 2020, the Chinese AR glasses manufacturer Rokid announced the second generation of the Rokid Glass model. In early July, the company announced the release at ARPost that the glasses were tested and ready for mass production.
Folding monocular glasses are designed for multi-purpose use. They can be used in more than a dozen business areas.
“All the products we’ve released are monocular that is mainly used for industrial, warehouse, and technical maintenance of various devices, electronic manufacturing, logistics, exhibitions, healthcare markets, and other B2B markets,” says Linda Wang, PR specialist from Rokid.
AR Rokid Glass 2 glasses support voice control and are focused on versatility as they are compatible with a wide range of external devices, sensors, and electronic devices, including tablets and smartphones. By the way, we already have experience in developing Android applications for smart glasses.
Considering COVID-19, the corporation has upgraded the technology. Halfway through the manufacturing process, Rokid decided to use an infrared sensor in the glasses that can check the temperature from a distance of ten people at a time. The added feature has become a major topic of interest among security and medical organizations.
Rokid Glass 2 has a 40-degree field of view and a built-in 10,000 mAh battery, which allows us to work for 8 hours without charging. Glasses also feature a 9-axis IMU sensor, an 8-megapixel autofocus camera, and dual active noise-canceling microphone.
“We are currently working on glasses that are used in on everyday basis such as in museums, construction sites, schools, etc.,” says Wang. “In the future, both monocular and binocular glasses for different markets will be available.”
Now that the Rokid Glass 2 model has completed its mass production phase, it will be shipped to distributors and cover pre-orders. AR glasses should soon appear in the online stores and they will cost about 2000-2500 USD.
