Jio Glass, a Combined reality headset, was announced at the annual Reliance AGM 2020 on Wednesday.
The headset basically pairs with your telephone to allow you to conduct classes, make video calls, and host meetings in a 3D holographic environment. Jio Platforms’ Tesseract subsidiary has designed the Jio Glass, and it’s said to be compatible with 25 mixed reality apps already. The mixed reality headset comes with an ergonomic design for comfortable use and a camera up front. It’s a slew of sensors built-in allowing users to engage in immersive content.
It appears just like every normal set of sunglasses in the beginning but is thicker in some areas to incorporate the sensors and hardware that is necessary. It essentially pairs with your smartphone also amplifies compatible programs to the 3D augmented world. The glasses come with support for spatial and directional XR sound system that runs all sound formats with no wired attachments. As mentioned, the combined reality headset comes with 25 mixed reality software compatibility across genres such as entertainment, learning, gaming, shopping, and productivity. Jio did not unveil pricing and accessibility plans for Jio Glass at the AGM.
The headset has a high resolution display, and there are ports at the frame for heat dissipation. The business claims users can quickly make calls using the Jio Glass through voice commands including”Hello Jio, please phone XXX and YYYY.” The Jio Glass allows users to make a holographic video phone in which you can also share, discuss, and deliberate on projects and demonstrations onto a large display. It’s also likely to enable virtual connections through 3D virtual avatar or even at a 2D manner.
Jio Glass could prove to be helpful for teachers and pupils too, allowing them to come together in a 3D virtual classroom and conduct holographic sessions throughout the Jio Mixed Reality Cloud in real-time. The combined reality headset may also enable immersive learning where students could virtually travel to the Taj Mahal or the Pyramids of Giza within their own geography lectures. The organization didn’t indulge in a lot of detail for the Jio Glass, but now that it has been unveiled, pricing and availability details must be announced in the near future.
