Nreal first announced the Light glasses at CES 2019 but didn’t plan to ship them to consumers until 2020. They’re supposed to arrive soon, according to my meeting with them at CES 2020, but we don’t have anything other than an “early 2020” estimate from the company.
The Nreal Light augmented reality glasses offer a mixed reality (MR) experience that’s way better than a heads-up display but not entirely immersive. They fit on your face just like normal glasses or sunglasses. However, they’re not as bulky as, say, an HTC Vive Cosmos or Oculus Quest, so you should be able to wear them considerably longer without getting tired of them. They weigh just about 3 ounces.
You can pull up virtual screens (multiple virtual screens, even!) and resize them and move them around. For instance, I could watch YouTube on one end of my living room and surf through another website on the other end of the room.
The picture quality is very good. I’ve heard from other people that the Nreal Light provides a higher-quality picture than the Magic Leap 1. That’s especially impressive considering the Magic Leap 1 isn’t nearly as affordable or as sleek as the Light. The Nreal Light supports a wide 52-degree field-of-view at 1080p, so increasing the size of the YouTube video in front of you doesn’t make things look blurry.
The Nreal Light AR glasses connect to any Snapdragon 855-powered smartphone with a USB-C cable. We used a Black Shark 2 to power the glasses during our demo and everything performed well. Since the bulk of the experience is enabled by the smartphone, all Android apps (yes, all) work with the platform.
I also played a zombie game during my demo. This is what really sold me. You have a hoard of zombies crawling near you, and the goal is to throw objects at them until they’re all defeated. It’s fun, especially seeing them in your real physical surroundings.
