AI glasses are here and you can get a pair starting October 17th, thanks to Meta.
Meta, in a strategic partnership with EssilorLuxottica, is rolling out its next-gen Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses.

2. MultiModal AI:
Meta’s AI companion isn’t just verbally interactive—it can communicate using voice, text, and even physical gestures. Users wearing these glasses can interact with MetaAI as it identifies real-world objects, responds to natural language prompts, and accomplishes tasks. For example, users can ask MetaAI for facts about a specific place they are looking at or an art piece in front of them, or to capture a photo or video of a specific moment.

5. AR Spatial Computing:
The integration of the Qualcomm Snapdragon AR1 Gen1 Platform means faster photo and video processing, enhancing the spatial computing for AR and VR experience.
150 custom combinations to choose from including Wayfarer or the newly introduced Headliner design.
7. Responsive and Secure:
The glasses seems lightweight and slim but also water-resistant, with improved touchpad responsiveness and interaction earcons for effortless control.
8. Hands-Free Livestream :
