Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has unveiled a redesigned Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses that can live stream on Facebook and Instagram.
Speaking at the Meta Connect event held at the company’s Menlo Park headquarters, Zuckerberg announced that the device will now include a new Meta AI assistant, enabling users to live stream directly to Facebook and Instagram. This marks a significant improvement over the previous generation, which was primarily known for capturing still images.
Here are some key features of the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses:
Audio Enhancement: These glasses come equipped with extended bass, higher maximum volume, and custom-designed speakers for better directional audio, minimizing audio leakage even in noisy or windy environments. A five-microphone array ensures clear audio recording from all directions.
Fast Imaging: The inclusion of an ultra-wide 12 MP camera enhances photo and video quality, allowing for up to 60 seconds of 1080p video capture. Additionally, you can easily share images with friends and family using voice commands.
Powered by Qualcomm: The Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon AR1 Gen1 platform.
Control: These glasses are now water-resistant (IPX4) and feature improved touchpad and ear interaction for swift responses to user commands.
Meta AI Integration: The Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses also come with the Meta AI, a conversational assistant feature. Users can engage in voice conversations with Meta AI by saying “Hey Meta,” enabling information retrieval and feature control through voice commands. Initially, this feature will be available in beta, exclusively in the United States.
Starting at $299 USD, the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses are available for pre-order on meta.com and reban.com. Customers can expect to purchase these glasses online and in retail stores starting October 17th.
