Rokid is back with a new update.
On Monday, the China-based startup project Aurora at CES is broadcast in Las Vegas.
The prototype features dual depth cameras, 6DoF tracking, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), to RGB camera , stereo speakers, and a USB-C port. According to the company, the device shows off the company's computer vision, AR, and AI capabilities.
Although we have the device to measure these claims, so far, Rokid Glassware Gets Hardware Update, Unveil's Project Aurora Prototype.
In the demo video (above) for the device, a user is shown playing a smartphone while wearing Project Aurora.
That's more heads-up display than AR, but given the device's depth cameras, we probably look at them See more AR-focused demonstration of the device sometime this week at CES.
"With the mission Rokid's Project Aurora, by leveraging the ever-increasing computing power of mobile devices, aurora supplements these robust experiences by providing a lightweight form factor, industry-leading display quality, and multimodal handsfree input, "said Reynold Wu, Rokid's head of product and business operations, in a statement.
"Project Aurora wants to connect consumers to rich, immersive AR content and experiences that were previously unattainable with such a lightweight smart glass, and we're excited to share how the future looks through it."  As this writing, no more details on which mobile, desktop, and gaming platforms Project Aurora wants support. However, we do know that the company's smart speaker, the Rokid Pebble, uses Android, so there's a good chance that the Project Aurora system wants to work with Android devices. And since it's a prototype, there's no release date, so this prototype wants to turn it into a retail product users can buy.
The company is now showing off an update (above) of the original Rokid Glass at CES. The new model is 40% smaller, weighs just 120 grams, and features a touchpad controller on the side arm of the device.
