ThirdEye shrinks its Smartglasses package with next generation X2 model «Next reality



Augmented reality wearables maker ThirdEye Gen, Inc. has officially released what is claimed to be the "smallest mixed reality glasses" in the X2, which will be available for hands-on demonstrations at the company's CES 2019 stand this week. [19659002] The successor to the X1 model, the X2 packs an integrated CPU / GPU with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, a 1750 mAh battery, sensors for motion, orientation, direction, ambient light and thermal vision, a 13 megapixel camera, two wide-vessel cameras for environmental mapping sensors, dual noise-canceling microphones for voice commands, a headphone jack, a USB-C port, and a flashlight in a package that weighs less than six ounces.

"We look forward to placing these small mixed executive glasses on CES," said Nick Cherukuri, founder of ThirdEye in a statement. "The goal of X2 was to integrate SLAM into a small glass form factor – it is the future to make MR glass masses mass produced."

The AR headset is available for pre-order now for $ 1,950, and the company also plans to sell X2 smartglasses through be8a brick and mortar.

Running on Android 8.0 is X2 compatible with apps built with Android Studio and device. ThirdEye also offers the VisionEye SLAM SDK to build magnified reality apps, along with its own series of apps for remote assistance and CAD model viewing.

The newer model has a field of view of approximately 42 degrees and a screen resolution of 1280×720, while its predecessor can display approximately 45 degrees of field of view and a more robust 1980×1080 resolution. They are the victims of the smaller form factor. With Microsoft HoloLens and the Magic Leap One, which stand as the dominant magnified reality heads, ThirdEye digs in its heels and hopes that a smaller all-inclusive lower-priced headset will swing corporate and developer.
