Rokid Glass provides an array of practical applications across various industries including manufacturing, engineering, construction, energy development, aerospace, warehousing and logistics. Its proprietary on-device artificial intelligence, and battery life of 4-5 hours for active use and 70 hours standby on a single charge, can help businesses boost their after-sales services and maintenance efficiencies, says a press release.

“We’re thrilled to finally offer Rokid Glass to the mass market,” said Reynold Wu, director of product at Rokid. “Through our beta program, our existing enterprise clients already span across manufacturing, education, medical, mining, maintenance and more. We’re extremely excited to see how our enterprise partners use this assistive device to increase efficiencies.”

Rokid Glass is engineered with a unique and comfortable ergonomic design. The balance point is set at the rear of the device with a forward-leaning upper brim which naturally traces the shape of users’ brows. Unlike traditional nose pads, adjustable nose pads of Rokid Glass accommodate more than 90% of users’ interpupillary distance, while a safety strap keeps Rokid Glass firmly in place in any work environment.
