After making its debut at last year's CES back in the spotlight, the manufacturer of augmented reality glasses Rokid has returned with a new update.
On Monday, the China-based startup project announced the Aurora project at CES in Las Vegas. The system, which uses the Rokid Glass portable device, is described as an extension of existing interfaces for smartphones, tablets, laptops and game consoles.
In addition, the new system should affect the company's computer vision, AR and AI functions. Although we have not yet tested the device to measure these claims, Rokid claims that his device can provide facial recognition, object recognition, and real-time audio translation when identifying objects (in English, Japanese, Spanish, French, and Chinese) [1

"With the Mobile Phone Expansion Mission We are excited to announce the Rokid Aurora Project: Utilizing the ever-increasing computing power of mobile devices, Project Aurora complements this robust experience a lightweight form factor, industry-leading display quality, and multimodal hands-free input, "said Reynold Wu, Rokid's product and business director, in a statement.
"The Aurora project will connect consumers with rich AR content and experiences that previously could not be achieved with such a lightweight smart glass, and we're thrilled to say what the future looks like through them."
