Exploring the Future of Learning with Frame Smart Glasses by Brilliant Labs
In a groundbreaking move, Brilliant Labs has unveiled its Frame smart glasses, integrating generative AI for an immersive educational experience. Resembling Where’s Waldo glasses, the Frame features a digital assistant named Noa, powered by multiple AI models, offering users a unique way to learn about their surroundings.
Noa’s Multifaceted Capabilities
Noa, the multimodal digital assistant within the Frame, employs OpenAI technology to conduct visual analyses on objects, providing real-time information on the AR lens. With capabilities like language translation via Whisper AI and internet searches through Perplexity AI, Noa can even offer price checks on products, making it a versatile tool for daily life.
Evolution of Noa: A Personalized Learning Companion
VentureBeat reports that Noa, always active, adopts a unique personality over time. Users initially answer questions, leading to the hatching of an avatar whose traits mirror their own. Constantly learning from interactions, Noa evolves to improve task handling. A micro-OLED projects on a geometric prism in the lens, reminiscent of Google Glass, providing a fascinating insight into the Frame’s technology.
Design and Battery Life
The Frame’s design includes a camera on the nose bridge and batteries in hubs at the stems. Brilliant Labs assures a full day’s use, and recharging involves a high-tech Groucho Marx impersonation with the Mister Power dongle.
Availability and Pricing
Currently open for pre-order at $350 per pair, the Frame comes in Smokey Black, Cool Gray, and transparent H20. Prescription lenses are available at $448, with free shipping, and the first batch is set to release on April 15. Notably, Brilliant Labs plans to introduce a subscription service to lift AI feature usage caps, offering users expanded access to the Frame’s capabilities.
