If all goes as planned, we will have a Facebook event today. In it, the Zuckerberg company will show us smart glasses developed together with Ray-Ban , glasses whose design we already know thanks to Evan Blass (aka EvLeaks).
The well-known leaker has published some photos of these glasses on his Twitter account . In them we can see that they will be available in various colors and that they will have two cameras and a button. What will they be used for? It is not known for now, but thanks to the videos that Zuckerberg and Andrew Bosworth (director of virtual and augmented reality of Facebook) we can get an idea .
The Facebook Spectacles?
That Facebook has been behind smart glasses for a long time is no secret. Back in 2019, CNBC slipped that the company had teamed up with Luxottica (Ray-Ban or Oakley's parent company) to develop augmented reality glasses . Later, this collaboration became official and received a name: Project Aria.
On the other hand, a few weeks ago the instruction manual for these glasses came to light . Thanks to him we knew that its design would be similar to that of conventional glasses. However, the design that we saw in this instruction manual is the one corresponding to August 2020 and there is some evolution with respect to the model filtered by EvLeaks .
How will these glasses work? The truth is that he does not know. Project Aria is designed to help Facebook in its quest to create a computer that sees and understands the world . Sounds familiar? Exactly, because it is no coincidence that right now Facebook, among other companies, has started talking about metaverses and creating a virtual replica of our world.
In the instruction manual it was stated that the glasses had a total of four cameras capable of taking photos and recording videos and that they could be equipped with prescription lenses. However, they do not have a screen or anything like that , so a priori they do not seem to be an augmented reality glasses type Google Glass .In xiaomist.com Metaverse, the fashionable concept that Zuckerberg does not stop talking about: what it is and why Facebook, Nvidia, Microsoft and others are fighting for it
And so we come to the videos that Zuckerberg and Bosworth have published on their Facebook and Twitter profiles, respectively. In them we can see the two executives kayaking , playing golf , skateboarding , playing ping pong and even fencing . All the videos are recorded at head height and in one of them you can even see the glasses.
Can we say that these videos have been recorded with the glasses? It could , because in the ping pong video Zuckerberg says " I'm looking forward to sharing what we've been working on with Ray-Ban ." White and bottled. In any case, you will have to wait until 6:00 p.m., Spanish peninsular time, to clear up any doubts.
