  • More like this, perhaps: The Frame smart glasses from Brilliant Labs are augmented-reality goggles that don't look like your head is being eaten by a coconut crab.  (The Verge)

    At $349 and 40 grams they're one tenth the price and one fifteenth the weight of Apple's Vision Pro.  They're about the size and weight of regular eyeglasses, and you can add prescription lenses for an extra $99.

    The shortcoming is that the AR display is only 640x400 and covers a small part of your vision, but that's really what you want when you're actually using them in everyday life.  Just a little area that can show you an urgent message, or directions to where you're headed, or identify the snake that just bit you because you were looking at the AR display rather than where you were walking.

1 Do the Frame glasses *have* to look so ugly?

2 Yes, I think the aesthetic is part of the vibe.  Or the vibe is part of the aesthetic.  Or jam.
