Xiaomi Announces AR Glasses That Give Us ‘Black Mirror’ Vibes But They Might Never Even Exist

Xiaomi has announced a pair of AR glasses that are rather Black Mirror-esque.

Following in the footsteps of Facebook, which recently announced Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses, Xiaomi has showcased their very own spectacles but have gone one step further.

Using the slogan “a display in front of your eyes”, Xiaomi’s Smart Glasses not only take photos but can display messages, notifications, navigation directions and can make calls in real-time.

If you ask us, it all sounds all too similar to the Black Mirror episode The Entire History Of You, in which users could record and playback footage from their eyeballs. Spoiler alert: it didn’t end well.

Although not embedded in your eyeballs, Xiaomi’s Smart Glasses is still capable of overlaying imagery through your vision.

Xiaomi’s Smart Glasses run on Android and are powered by a quad-core ARM processor with MicroLED technology.

However, for the technophobes out there, Xiaomi has said there is no plan to actually put the Smart Glasses on sale, so they might not actually become reality.

Nonetheless, their detailed concept seems rather plausible in today’s metaverse-VR-AR-centric tech.
