Lenovo is the latest company to promote a USB-C monitor designed for your face. The company’s new glasses T1 Put a Full HD OLED screen in front of each of your eyes It was revealed today during IFA and beyond Lenovo default display.
This particular wearable display, Lenovo says, looks a lot like other consumers’ smart glasses, Including TCL’s NxtWear Air, which puts two 1080p micro-OLED displays in front of your eyes, just like the Lenovo T1. Another similar product is Nile Airalthough the screen refresh rate is 90Hz compared to the T1’s 60Hz.
You don’t get any VR or AR experiences with these types of glasses, and you can’t safely walk around wearing them because your vision will be completely obscured, and the cable keeps it restricted no matter where you come from. Instead, it’s designed for you to stay put as if you were watching a physical TV or screen, but the effect makes it feel like a huge theater screen. You can watch movies, play games and do your secret digital papers, all while looking like Marvel’s Daredevil – without his hyper-consciousness.
Lenovo is betting that mobile gamers will want these glasses as well, citing a global industry analysts report predicting that there will be $160 billion global market for the industry by 2026. Likewise, the eclipse of the video streaming market is expected to mean that more people may want to watch shows inside their T1 bubbles.
The T1 glasses use a physical wire to connect to devices such as computers, tablets, smartphones, Macs, and other devices that can output video via USB-C. If you want to use the glasses with iOS devices like your iPhone, you’ll have to buy a Lenovo HDMI adapter, as well as an Apple digital AV adapter — all because Apple It still hasn’t moved from the 10-year-old Lightning port. The T1 glasses also work with Motorola’s “Ready For” secondary interface that allows you to use applications in desktop style.
Additionally, the glasses come with multiple nose pads that will come in handy for extended use and a prescription frame if you need them. The T1 glasses are battery powered but can draw power from capable devices. They also have built in speakers in case you just want the video to be super private.
Like many other display glasses, Lenovo Glasses T1 will be launched for the Chinese market first. They are called Lenovo Yoga Glasses in China and they will appear by the end of the year. The company also plans to release it in “select markets” later in 2023. No pricing has been released.
