Lenovo announces the Glasses T1, its virtual reality glasses
That Glasses T1 are one of the main attractions of Lenovo at IFA 2022. The Chinese brand’s new glasses explore the concept of virtual reality, but not like traditional VR headsets. The company presents them as a private screen to watch films and series, play games or work undisturbed.
Lenovo’s commitment to the Glasses T1 is to provide a capable device that’s easy to use and carry, with a primary focus on content consumption. At a time when more and more companies are exploring the smart glasses market, Asians don’t want to be left out. What they are proposing is certainly not the most grandiose thing to find in the industry, but it seems poised to fulfill what is suggested.
According to Lenovo, these are the Glasses T1 “a private and modular screen”, compatible with most devices with USB-C port. This means that by simply connecting the glasses to a Windows computer or to an Android smartphone or tablet, the glasses are ready to use. If you’re using an iPhone, you can use them too, but you’ll need to buy an adapter for the Lightning connector separately.
Lenovo Glasses T1: neither data glasses nor virtual reality headset
As we said at the beginning, the Lenovo Glasses T1 was designed for specific purposes: to enjoy multimedia content, play games or work privately and without distractions. This puts them in a kind of limbo. They are not, and cannot be classified as, smart glasses like those developed by Meta and Ray-Ban Headset PlayStation VR2 style virtual reality. And although they are more related to the second concept than the first, the manufacturer himself created distance. In fact, the press material on this product states: “[…] Unlike traditional VR headsets, these glasses keep you fully connected to the outside world.”
In addition, it is interesting to highlight some of the most interesting technical characteristics of this equipment. The Lenovo Glasses T1 integrated Micro OLED displays with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels for each eye, at 60 frames per second. Sound comes from the built-in high-fidelity speakers, and volume is controlled by buttons located under the right temple.
Another interesting point is that the glasses have two TÜV certifications: Low blue lightby filtering blue light, and Flicker reduced, due to the decrease in blinking. This is to protect the eyesight of the users so that it is not affected by prolonged use.
Lenovo also highlights the implementation of high-strength hinges, as well as the inclusion of a frame for spectacle wearers. The product also includes a protective case, a cleaning cloth and three adjustable nose pads.
Lenovo does not provide any further information on the availability of the Glasses T1. For now, the company has only mentioned that it may vary by market or region.
