The idea is that the lenses, using a sensor, adjust to the ambient light, making images of the real world lighter or darker. Apple claims that the brightness of the “real object” can be reduced to make the subject more visible through glasses. The type of object is adjusted according to the brightness of the real world. By adjusting each lens in this way, you can independently make changes to the image for the left and right eyes.

The function is curious, and it is not yet completely clear how exactly this will be implemented. According to Apple’s plans, the new smart glasses should become very popular in the world, and even squeeze the iPhone in popularity. The main feature of the new device is access to all the functions of a smartphone, without having to constantly carry the phone in your hands. The statement is bold, the plans are grandiose. It remains to wait for Apple Glass and find out the price.

Xiaomi has unveiled the fitness bracelet Mi Band 7 Pro

Xiaomi today officially declassified the Mi Band 7 Pro fitness bracelet. The official premiere of the device will take place on July 4 along with the Xiaomi 12S line of smartphones, but now you can evaluate the design of the device. And this is one of the key differences from Mi Band 7 and Mi Band 7 NFC.

More precisely, the difference lies in the use of a completely new rectangular screen – different from the Mi Band 7 display. Obviously, it is wider and the area is larger. In fact, the Mi Band 7 Pro looks more like a watch than a fitness bracelet. Naturally, the interface will be adapted for the new display.

In the description of the novelty, Xiaomi uses the word “fashion”, and also talks about “more professional sports functions and health monitoring functions.” You might think that the Mi Band 7 Pro will have unusual colors for both the body and straps, there will be more sports modes and there will be some innovations in terms of monitoring vital signs. Although here the company can limit itself to just a more accurate optical sensor for measuring heart rate and SpO2, otherwise the Mi Band 7 Pro would be too expensive for its niche. It was also previously said that the device will receive a built-in GPS module.

US Army tests Microsofts 22 billion augmented reality glasses

The US military has completed intensive testing of Microsoft’s new multifunctional glasses. The soldiers of the 70th Army wore glasses for three weeks, playing three 72-hour scenarios, including movement towards the enemy, attack and defense.

US Army tests Microsoft's $22 billion augmented reality glasses

The results of the test report, which will be published in September, will determine whether the US Congress will approve the next $424.2 million test cycle, as well as whether purchases of the device, which is planned to spend another $21.9 billion, will begin. It should be noted that these 22 billion included not only the cost of the glasses themselves, but also spare parts, as well as technical support services for 10 years.

The glasses are a “head display” of the type used by fighter pilots. From a technical point of view, this is a heavily modified version of the HoloLens glasses. The screen of the device, which is always in front of the soldier’s eyes, displays a map of the area, instructions from commanders and other data (for example, an image of a thermal imager).

iPhone users who for some reason don’t like Apple smartwatches will be able to use new models based on Wear OS.

If you want to buy a smart watch for the iPhone, but not an Apple Watch.  Wear OS 3 supports iOS even though the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 doesn't

The first and so far the only watch on Wear OS 3 is the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. And it doesn’t work with iOS. But apparently this is an artificial limitation on Samsung’s part, as it has now become known that Wear OS 3 itself can work with iOS.

Qualcomm confirmed this by saying that the upcoming Montblanc Summit 3 watch will be compatible with the iPhone. This watch will be the first with Wear OS 3 after Samsung devices. True, it will be an expensive $1,290 watch, but there should be many more Wear OS 3 models on the market this year, so iPhone owners will have a choice.
