A new pair of open-source smart glasses from startup Brilliant Labs, offers AI translations, web searches and visual analyses right that appear in front of the user’s eyes.
The Frame glasses cost $349 and obey voice commands to look up information on things the user sees, including facts about tourist sites, costs of products and nutritional content of food.
While this is not the first pair of smart glasses, none have yet gained mainstream adoption. These may fare better as they are open source and offer more flexibility to users.
The glasses pair with the company’s Noa app, which uses OpenAI for visual analysis, Perplexity for web search and Whisper for translation. While the app is free, it has a daily cap and the company will begin offering a paid tier at some point in the future. Meanwhile, the glasses can be used with other apps for free.
