Even though businesses continuously attempting to create the metaverse, most individuals, with a little enhancement, would probably be content with our current world. The Lenovo Glasses T1 is a new wearable display from Lenovo that connects to phones and PCs so users can view videos, play games, or work on a bigger virtual screen.

The Lenovo Glasses T1 may remind some people of the now-defunct Google Glass, but they are very different. The former was an innovator in the field of augmented reality (AR), projecting a sort of head-up display (HUD) with information that was unique to the context over the actual environment. The latter, on the other hand, belongs to a rising class of gadgets that trick users into thinking they’re staring at a large screen when they’re actually simply donning some silly glasses.

The concept is to provide a portable big screen experience for business, entertainment, and games. You may display a large second screen above your laptop when working in a café so that you don’t have to strain your eyes to see your phone while watching a movie on the train.

In order to do this, the Lenovo Glasses T1 are equipped with two Micro OLED screens, one of which has a Full HD resolution and a frame rate of 60 Hz. They are capable of displaying material from Windows, Android, or MacOS-powered smartphones, laptops, PCs, and other devices that output using USB Type-C cables. iPhone owners, as is frequently the case, will have an additional hurdle to clear since they need not one, but two different adapters to change the signal from Lightning to HDMI and then to USB-C.

Strangely, neither a headphone jack nor Bluetooth audio connectivity are mentioned for the glasses. It would seem obvious to add at least one of those, but Lenovo only cites the built-in speakers as an audio output, so you’d wind up being that unpleasant passenger blasting music for everyone to hear.

Lenovo claims that the Lenovo Glasses T1 use little power overall, however it doesn’t provide any details. The battery life of the glasses is listed as “up to hours,” which is concerning, but they also include a built-in battery and can draw power from any connected device.

Nevertheless, these virtual screen wearables are some of the most fashionable we’ve seen so far, resembling sunglasses more than a Star Trek VISOR. They even include replaceable nose clips, movable arms, and a frame that can accommodate prescription lenses for comfort.

The cost of the Lenovo Glasses T1 has not yet been disclosed by Lenovo, but for the purpose of comparison, the company’s current, work-focused ThinkReality A3 Smart Glasses are now available for US$1,500. And there is a lot more AR technology within.

The Lenovo Glasses T1 will be released in China in late 2022, with the rest of the world following next year.
