TCL has unveiled the Thunderbird Smart Glasses Pioneer Edition. The company used a micro-LED display with a waveguide that was developed in-house over the last three years.
The TCL team developed a proprietary algorithm that enables the Thunderbird glasses to show a full-colored image. While they are similar to Xiaomi’s smart glasses concept by having a MicroLED display, the TCL Thunderbird smart glasses’ output comes in full-color rather than monochrome.
The Thunderbird smart glasses enable users to read the news, view messages, check their schedules, control their smart home devices, and more through the visuals projected on the lens. Check out the video below for a demonstration of the Thunderbird smart glasses.
As shown in the demonstration video, the smart glasses have a built-in camera (on the bridge of the nose), enabling users to capture photos that can be automatically transferred to the smartphone. It looks like you still need your phone to provide internet connectivity to maximize the smart glasses’ full functionality.
Additionally, there’s no word yet about the availability and pricing of the Thunderbird Smart Glasses.
