Beware, Meta Ray-Ban: These are the world’s first smart glasses with GPT-4o


The new Solos smart glasses have eyes of their own. The company has announced AirGo Vision, the first smart glasses with GPT-4o and generative artificial intelligence (AI) that can analyze visual information.

So why do glasses need ChatGPT? Instead of using a service like Google Lens on your phone to look something up, Solos says AirGo Vision will provide real-time information based on visual input, such as recognizing people, objects, or landmarks (similar to Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses), or giving walking directions, looking up the price of something, and more.

Users can capture photos hands-free to request information. Examples could include checking the next step of a recipe or asking where to buy an item.

The glasses will be able to answer multiple queries at the same time. An example search in the Solos press ad reads: “What am I looking at and how much does it cost? Is there a better price elsewhere?”

Plus: These new AR smart glasses are all about audio and ChatGPT and start at $199

AirGo Vision will have interchangeable frames, meaning you can decide whether you want smart glasses with a front camera or without a camera.

A built-in LED notification light will give you a discreet flash to let you know you have an alert. Solos says visual alerts could be useful in a noisy environment where notifications may go unnoticed, a quiet environment where someone has notifications turned off, and for users who may be hearing impaired.

Also: The metaverse has all but disappeared. Here’s why generative AI is to blame

AirGo Vision isn’t Solos’ first foray into the world of AI-powered smart glasses. The company unveiled the Solos AirGo3 smart glasses with ChatGPT at CES 2024. While the Solos AirGo3 uses audio to let you talk to ChatGPT, the AirGo Vision glasses let you search for information with visual information.

AirGo Vision will be available later this year, with three LED-only frame styles launching in July and a suggested retail price of $249.99.
