In this conversation, we talk about the company’s approach to designing and developing AR smartglasses, and what we can expect out of Rokid Glass and Rokid Vision when they start to ship.

Keiran shares why he moved from mobile to AR smartglasses: he saw the benefits of crafting a device that is hands-free built specifically for AR.

We get into some of the lessons they’ve learned with the Rokid Glass, and how they are applying them to the second-generation device, the Rokid Vision.

We also get into the weeds about which components use the most power on smartglasses and some of the related design decisions, and we talk more broadly about what’s holding back consumer-grade smartglasses and where they think the market is going.
