OPPO held the 2020 Inno Day event yesterday and released many products. OPPO AR Glass 2021 is one of the products launched by the technology giant at this event, and this product also saw the release of a concept scrollable display phone.
This year’s version is an improved version, but the design is similar to ordinary glasses. The design of the previous version of OPPO AR glasses is very similar to VR glasses.
OPPO AR glasses 2021 adopts Birdbath optical solution, which improves the contrast by 53%. Compared with last year’s model, it also improved the brightness uniformity by 98% and the pixel per degree by 40%.
In terms of construction, this model is 75% lighter than last year’s model, and it can be connected to a smartphone via a USB-C to USB-C port.
AR glasses are equipped with a 0.71-inch OLED display whose light is refracted to the eyes by a beam splitter. There is also a customized large-amplitude speaker on the board with a unique semi-open back cavity acoustic design.
This audio design will ensure that AR glasses provide a home theater-like experience, giving people the feeling of viewing a 90-inch screen at a distance of 3m.
Users can also interact with the glasses through a paired smartphone. The glasses can be used as a touchpad. Users can track their hands and fingers equally through the binocular fisheye camera of the glasses.
The camera can recognize 21 marks with one hand and four with one finger. Those cameras paired with ToF cameras can achieve centimeter-level accuracy within 1 degree.
Speaking of the potential use cases of glasses, OPPO said it can be used for AR streaming of online and local HD videos, providing a “theatre-style” viewing experience.
It can also be deployed for AR games with multiplayer online battle arenas and tower defense games, virtual placement of furniture at home, and AR photo shooting through RGB cameras that capture both virtual and real scenes.
OPPO also plans to open the system to developers by providing a comprehensive client SDK and development tool chain under the Oppo AR Developer Program.
The program will begin next year and will help the community create AR-specific applications.
