Announced in April of this year, Rokid AR Lite, the first AR glasses powered by the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1, will be available on Kickstarter on May 27. With that SoC, the suite brings the same level of power and versatility that you would find in mid-range smartphones. The launch price is $749, with early adopters having the chance to get it at $499.

Rokid AR Lite will be available on Kickstarter on the coming May 27, offering early backers the chance to get it at a generously discounted price. The regular price of the AR glasses is $749, but if you're a backer of the project, you can get the spatial computing suite at $499.

As for the highlights, the AR glasses suite comes with the Rokid Max 2 glasses and Station 2 host. The latter packs Snapdragon 6 Gen 1, which is the same SoC you will find in mid-range smartphones (Moto G Stylus curr. $249.99 on Amazon). Combined with the proprietary YodaOS-Master operating system, the company promises to deliver an enhanced spatial computing experience.

The Rokid Max 2 glasses of the suite weigh 75 grams, close to some of the traditional glasses you would find in the market. With an industrial design and a focus on ergonomics, the company aims to offer a comfortable wearing experience. As for the Rokid Station 2, it features a sleek aluminum alloy build.

While the host has a compact form factor, it sports a large 5000 mAh battery for extended use. With 18W fast charging support, the internal battery can get from 0% to 100% reasonably fast. Also, thanks to the dual USB-C ports, you can charge and use the AR glasses at the same time.

When it comes to spatial computing experience, the AR Lite suite claims to bring innovative human-machine interaction. Instead of physical buttons, the Rokid Station 2 features touch-based and pointer-based controls. It also has a dedicated motion mode that aims to offer high picture stabilization during traveling, while the multi-screen mode provides a large screen equivalent to a 300-inch display.

Rokid also says that it has worked with Qualcomm to fully optimize the YodaOS-Master operating system to offer the most from the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1. You can learn more about the AR Lite suite from the official website.
