Jio Glass, a mixed reality headset, was announced at the annual Reliance AGM 2020 on Wednesday. The headset essentially pairs with your phone to let you conduct classes, make video calls, and host meetings in a 3D holographic environment. Jio Platforms’ Tesseract subsidiary has designed the Jio Glass, and it is said to be compatible with 25 mixed reality apps already. The mixed reality headset has an ergonomic design for comfortable use and a camera up front. It has a slew of sensors built-in to allow users to engage in immersive content.
The Jio Glass is lightweight and weighs only 75 grams. It looks just like any normal pair of sunglasses at the outset but is thicker in some places to integrate the sensors and necessary hardware. It essentially pairs with your smartphone and amplifies compatible apps into the 3D augmented world. The glasses come with support for spatial and directional XR sound system that runs all audio formats without any wired attachments. As mentioned, the mixed reality headset comes with 25 mixed reality applications compatibility across genres like entertainment, learning, gaming, shopping and productivity. Jio didn’t unveil pricing and availability plans for Jio Glass at the AGM.
The headset has a high-resolution display, and there are vents in the frame for heat dissipation. The company claims users can easily make calls using the Jio Glass through voice commands like “Hello Jio, please call XXX and YYYY.” The Jio Glass enables users to make a holographic video call in which you can also share, discuss, and deliberate on projects and presentations on a large screen. It is also possible to enable virtual interactions through 3D virtual avatar or even in a 2D manner.
