The Nreal Air AR glasses are coming to the UK this spring
The Nreal Air AR glasses will be available exclusively through EE in the UK this spring. This is the latest in a series of collaborations between Nreal and telecommunications companies to bring its AR glasses to customers.
You can connect the wearable to a compatible smartphone to experience large scale digital content on the go. For example, you can use the glasses to stream content in Full HD or for cloud gaming. The sunglasses style device has fine-tuned audio, and you can pair the device with a connected Bluetooth gaming controller.
Air Casting mode allows you to stream content on a 130-in (~330 cm) virtual display. You can use MR Space mode for a display up to a 201-in (~511 cm) and a mixed reality experience, such as stationary cycling exercises in an AR environment. The Nreal air glasses are lightweight, weighing 79 g (~2.9 oz), and can be fitted with a lens frame for those who usually wear prescription glasses.
The companies have not yet announced the exact release date and pricing, though the gadget currently retails at 39,799 yen (~£248) in Japan. A complete list of compatible iOS and Android smartphones will also be listed at launch.
According to EE, this partnership is part of its ongoing commitment to provide new experiences for its customers. About the project, Alistair Wilson, Director of Devices and Partnerships at EE, said
When combined with the power of 5G, it really does open up new possibilities for seamless streaming and access to new types of content on the move – these are really exciting times for mobile.”
