Jio Announced Glass Mixed Reality Headset With Wireless Audio, Support 3D Holographic Video Calling
Jio Announced Glass Mixed Reality Headset With Wireless Audio, Support 3D Holographic Video Calling. Jio Glass, a mixed reality headset, was announced on Wednesday at the annual Reliance AGM 2020. The headset essentially pairs with your phone to let you run classes, make video calls, and host meetings in a 3D holographic setting. Jio Platforms’ Tesseract subsidiary has developed Jio Glass and is said to have already been compliant with 25 mixed reality applications. The mixed reality headset has an ergonomic design for comfortable use and a camera on the front. It has a host of built-in sensors to allow users to engage in immersive content.
The Jio Glass is lightweight and weights just 75 grams. It looks like any normal pair of sunglasses at the beginning, but is thicker in some places to integrate the sensors and the hardware needed. Essentially, it pairs with your smartphone and amplifies compatible apps to the augmented 3D world. The lenses come with support for a spatial and directional XR sound system that runs all audio formats without any wired attachments. As mentioned above, the mixed reality headset comes with 25 mixed reality applications that are compatible across genres such as entertainment, learning, gaming, shopping and productivity. At the AGM, Jio did not unveil pricing and availability plans for Jio Glass.
The headset has a high-resolution camera, and there are vents in the heat dissipation case. The organization says that users can conveniently make calls using Jio Glass through voice commands such as “Hello Jio, please call XXX and YYYY.” Jio Glass allows users to make a holographic video call in which they can also communicate, review and discuss ideas and presentations on a big screen. Interactive interfaces can also be made possible with a 3D virtual avatar or also in a 2D manner.
Jio Glass could prove useful to teachers and students as well, enabling them to come together in a simulated 3D classroom and have holographic sessions via the Jio Mixed Reality Environment in real time. Mixed reality headsets could also provide immersive learning where students could digitally fly to Taj Mahal or the Giza Pyramids in their geography lectures. The company did not indulge in too much detail for Jio Glass, but now that it has been unveiled, the availability and pricing details should be announced in the near future.
