Rokid Glass Gets Major Hardware Update, Introduces Project Aurora Prototype, and Reveals Startup Schedule «Next Reality



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 new prototype hardware device is described as functioning as an extension of existing interfaces on smartphones, tablets, laptops and game consoles.

The prototype has dual depth cameras, 6DoF tracking, SLAM (simultaneous location and mapping), an RGB camera stereo speaker and a USB C port. According to the company, the unit shows up the company's data vision, AR and AI capabilities.

Although we have not yet tested the device to measure these claims, Rokid claims that its device can deliver face recognition, object (1

The demo video (above) of the device displays a user playing a smartphone game while wearing Project Aurora. But while he checks the game with his hands on the smartphone, he looks at the game and looks straight at the Rokid device.

It is more heads-up display area than AR, but given the device's deep cameras, we are likely to see one more AR-focused demonstration of the device once a week at CES.

By utilizing the ever-increasing computation of mobile devices, 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 Product and Business Manager, in a statement.

"Project Aurora will connect consumers to rich, immersed AR content and experiences that previously could not be achieved with such a lightweight smartglass, and we are happy to share how the future looks through it." [19659002] With this writing, no details have indicated which mobile, desktop and gaming platforms Project Aurora will support. However, we know that the company's smart speaker, Rokid Pebble, uses Android, so there's a good chance that the Project Aurora system will work with Android devices. And because it is a prototype there is no release date, so we have no confirmation that this prototype will ever be converted into a retail product user can buy.

The company also shows an update (above) of the original Rokid Glass on CES. The new model is 40% smaller, weighs just 120 grams and has a touch screen controller on the side arm of the unit. Although a prize has not been published, the company plans to sell the unit to the public in the spring.
