December 14, 2021, SHENZHEN ,OPPO officially unveiled the OPPO Air Glass.It will be on sale in China in the spring of 2022.
OPPO has developed two generations of AR smart glasses, but did not take the production. In December 2019, the first generation of smart AR glasses adopted an integrated design, and the weight and volume were relatively bulky. In November 2020, the second-generation OPPO AR Glass 2021 smart glasses adopt a split design, with upgrades in the wearing experience, optical solutions, interaction methods and content ecology.
OPPO Air Glass is built around a groundbreaking monocle waveguide design. Based on OPPO’s distinctive design philosophy, Air Glass features free-flowing curves, which give birth to its lightweight and minimalist appearance. With a total weight of approximately 30g, OPPO Air Glass is one of the lightest monocle waveguide devices in the industry and can be worn much like a pair of regular glasses. The design of the main body takes its inspiration from feathers - light, sleek and curved, with a touchbar that resembles an elegant feather shaft. The design of the monocular waveguide lens, on the other hand, is inspired by the wings of the cicada, breaking away from the conventional confines of rounded or rounded rectangular lenses on glasses. The lens is secured to a light and slim frame, which houses all the components, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 Platform.
At the heart of OPPO Air Glass display system is OPPO’s self-developed Spark Micro Projector – one of the most compact projection system in the industry is of merely 0.5cc, or roughly the size of a coffee bean. The projector features a CNC metal enclosure with a glass lens module to provide better heat dissipation and stability. The projector is powered by a cutting-edge Micro LED, which has a brightness of up to 3 million nits. OPPO Air Glass adopts a bespoke optical diffraction waveguide, supporting two display modes - 16-level grayscale and 256-level grayscale - and can deliver up to 1400 nits in average brightness, ensuring a vivid and sharp visual display in different lighting conditions. Additionally, two layers of sapphire glass are used to encase the waveguide on both sides, providing protection with improved transparency.
OPPO Air Glass is designed to be as accessible to as many people as possible, including users with refractive errors such as myopia and hypermetropia. The glasses are available in two different types of frames - a silver half-frame, and a black full-frame that can better accommodate users who require corrective eyewear.
OPPO Air Glass is installed with a variety of applications, including those developed by OPPO. These include Weather, Calendar, Health, Teleprompter, Translation, and Navigation. Another innovative application of Air Glass is the Teleprompter, which allows an adaptive text display to make your presentation at work or in public a breeze.
