Augmented Reality (AR) has made its major breakthrough in the mainstream market with apps like Pokémon GO. Apart from gaming, you can find AR utilized in different areas such as in the beauty and food industries. As such, different companies have been making AR glasses. Today, we are having a look at Rokid’s latest AR glasses model, the Rokid Max.
A look through the lens
The main feature of the Rokid Max is that the user can see a 215 inches max screen, as seen from six meters away. Its refresh rate is 120 hertz, so your eyes can enjoy a very smooth display. And more importantly, the glasses are light. They weigh only 75 grams, with a front-to-back balance. Clearly, someone put a lot of thought into making this device comfortable for its users.
Aside from all that, there’s one feature of the Rokid Max that made me jump in my seat with excitement: it takes myopia into account. If you are like me, you probably struggled with earlier models because no eye correction was available. So either you had to switch between your regular glasses and your AR glasses, or you had to just endure. Rokid’s AR glasses offer myopia adjustment between 0.00D and -6.00D. I am not sure yet how it works, but that is very exciting.
When you purchase the Rokid Max, what you get can seem a bit minimalistic. Several accessories can be bought at a fair price, but one can regret that a few connectors are not offered alongside the glasses. For $439, you get the glasses, a blackout cover, a carrying case, a USB-C cable, a cleaning cloth, and of course a user manual.
