Maybe you use an app to keep track of how many calories you eat. It’s always a shock when you’ve been tempted by a Snickers, but it’s also great when you see that the broccoli doesn’t turn out at all. However, you probably sometimes forget to enter something and then the entire estimate is no longer correct. New AI glasses should change that: they can see what you are about to eat.
Brilliant Labs has created the Frame AI glasses: they are glasses that, thanks to AI from OpenAI, can help directly translate foreign texts, recognize objects and therefore do more with them. In the example video we see how the glasses increase a counter when raspberries come into view. The Humane AI Pin also seems to be able to do this, but we have never seen that on glasses (or, for example, in the camera of a smartphone).
Moreover, if someone starts a conversation with you in another language, the glasses immediately translate what is being said for you. This technology in itself is not new, Samsung introduced it with its S24, for example, but it is useful if it is already in your glasses, because you already have them on your head. The AI assistant in these glasses is called Noa and she is always there to help you. Noa even changes as you speak to it, making it feel more like a human talking to you. We collaborated with several AI companies to create these glasses, which means they have GPT-4, Stability AI and Whisper AI.
Imagine you are on holiday in Jordan and you go to the famous imposing building in Petra. The glasses let you know if someone shouts at you to move aside, but can also tell you about the building. If you see someone walking with a bag that you want, the glasses can tell you where you can buy it and how much money it costs. If you also have to go home, you simply use navigation in your glasses.
You can wear the glasses without prescription and with prescription. The glasses are micro-OLED displays that show images with a resolution of 640 x 400 pixels. The camera is HD and can capture images at 1280 x 720 pixels.
The Frame can last a day with its battery and if you want to charge it you need a kind of ‘nose’ that also has an orange color. It even has a name: Mister Power. This device is needed to supply power to the glasses via USB-C. It looks quite witty, partly because an enormous round frame was chosen that is reminiscent of various greats, such as Gandhi and Lennon:
The Frame costs $349 and will probably cost between $349 – $400. It will even be available from April this year.
