Rokid, a Chinese augmented reality (AR) company, has announced its next-generation AR glasses with the launch of ‘Rokid Max,’ which offer a theatre-style viewing experience that is equivalent to a 215-inch large screen viewed from 6 meters away, according to the company.
Weighing just 75g, the compact glasses offer an optimal viewing experience that allow the wearer to enjoy a big-screen experience from the comfort of their own home, on the go, in the office, or just about anywhere. Additionally, users can play their favourite video games whilst wearing the glasses to add to the immersion.
Rokid Max builds on the success of Rokid Air AR glasses, but goes beyond being just an upgrade, according to the company. Hui Du, Head of Rokid’s Hardware Design Center, said: “These incredible AR glasses allow commuters to make the most of their time – to enjoy a large screen for watching movies, playing games, browsing, or getting work done, without carrying bulky and expensive computers, hosts, and displays.”
Cinema-grade MAX screen
The 215-inch borderless screen on the Rokid Max is 50% larger than its Rokid Air predecessor and supports a 120Hz refresh rate, according to Rokid. This allows users to immerse themselves in the viewing experience, whilst also being easy on the eyes. Additionally, Rokid Max boasts a field of view (FoV) of around 50 degrees to provide users with a comfortably centred view, whether they are sitting, standing, lying down, walking, or exercising.
Additionally, the glasses reduce forward light leakage by 90%, enabling Rokid Max to offer users an immersive audiovisual journey in privacy and peace. Rokid also pointed out that the glasses support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which the company stated allows users to watch a wide range of movies and TV shows worldwide, including various streaming services, subverting the idea that Chinese AR glasses have limited access to digital copyrights.
