A clunky pair of hi-tech glasses that superimposes computer graphics over the real-world has taken the CES tech expo by storm this year.
Nreal, the Chinese start-up involved, has confounded the expectations of many industry watchers with the quality of the images its Light glasses produces.
The firm still faces issues. One tester said the glasses looked a bit “clunky”, and the company is being sued by Magic Leap, a rival.
But long-time CES attendee Ben Wood, an influential tech consultant, declared them the “product of the show”.
“I’m not gong to pretend the glasses will be to everybody’s taste – this is still a first-generation product. But they are a lot closer to a normal pair of sunglasses than some of the other bulky smart glasses I’ve seen, and they definitely provide the best experience of augmented reality glasses at CES.”
