In Augmented Reality News 

June 24, 2024 – XRAI Glass, a provider of augmented reality (AR) software solutions, has recently announced the launch of its very own AR glasses, with the release of the ‘XRAI AR One.’ The new state-of-the-art smart glasses from the company are designed to meet the needs of the global deaf and hard-of-hearing community, offering enhanced accessibility and transforming the way people experience conversations.

Featuring an ultra-lightweight and wireless design, XRAI states that its AR One smart glasses prioritize user comfort without compromising on functionality. Driven by the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, the glasses empower users with the ability to see real-time captions in over 140+ languages, right in front of their eyes.

The incorporation of clear transparent lenses ensures a fully immersive experience, enabling users to enjoy subtitled conversations while still remaining engaged with their environment.

Dan Scarfe, CEO and founder of XRAI, commented: “We’ve had tens of thousands of users around the world experience the power of XRAI Glass. The consistent feedback from users is that they want wire-free, they want transparent lenses, they want all-in-one with a go button, but also, super lightweight. With the AR One, we’ve hit all four of these ambitious design goals.”
