Return to the spotlight after its debut last year CES, reinforced reality smartglasses maker Rokid is back with a new update.
On Monday, China-based startup project Aurora announced at CES in Las Vegas. The system, which operates through the Rokid Glass portable device, is described as an extension of existing interfaces on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and game consoles.
In addition, the new system is said to weave in the company's data vision, AR and AI functions. Although we haven't yet tested the device to measure these claims, Rokid claims so far that its device can deliver face recognition, object recognition, and real-time audio translation when identifying objects (in English, Japanese, Spanish, French, and Chinese).
With this writing, no details have indicated which mobile, desktop and gaming platforms Project Aurora will support. But we know that the company's smart speaker, Rokid Pebble, uses Android, so it's a good chance that Project Aurora system will work with Android devices.
"With the mission of expanding the mobile device Unity and experience, we are pleased to announce Rokid's Project Aurora. By utilizing the ever increasing calculation of mobile units, Project Aurora complements these robust experiences by providing a lightweight form factor, industry-leading image quality and multimodal hands-free input, "says Reynold Wu, Rokid's head of product and business operations, in a statement.
"Project Aurora will connect consumers to rich, immersed AR content and experiences that previously could not be achieved with such a light smart glass and we are happy to share how the future looks through it."
