Lenovo’s Micro-OLED Legion glasses are rumored to be wearable gaming displays. This is however more than just a rumor as it has been confirmed by many platforms and experts that are well known to the matter. This then means smart glasses for your gaming handheld.
Lenovo’s Micro-OLED Legion Glasses
Nobody in question really owns smart glasses in everyday life, and the vivid dream of true AR glasses is still being worked out as we speak. But however, in the meantime, could the gaming glasses in question be a thing? Well, not so many people think so, but Lenovo however thinks so.
The just newly announced Legion Glasses, which are set to arrive in October for $329, are primarily accessories for the newly-announced Legion Go Windows gaming handheld of Lenovo, but you should also know that they will also work with any form of device that can output a display via USB-C (Windows, Mac, or Android).
Wearable Displays, And Not AR Glasses
The devices in question are wearable displays, and not AR glasses, which is very much similar in spirit to what TCL as well as other firms have made for years. However, they are notable for several reasons which is that they have Micro-OLED displays and that they are the entry of Lenovo into glasses for the nonbusiness space.
By contrast, Lenovo already has more expensive ThinkReality A3 AR glasses and it is also a partner with Qualcomm on its future VR/AR device plans.
How the Legion Glasses Work
The Legion Glasses in question can easily plug right into the Legion Go and also work as displays with audio through USB-C. The device in question also has adjustable nose pieces as well as a frame to help insert prescription lenses, if ever necessary.
Micro-OLED for those that don’t know has been one of the most promising display technologies for future VR and AR headsets. The high resolution as well as vivid brightness and color, then paired with the small size of the very technology, makes it a much better option for smart glasses of the future.
The Vision Pro headset of Apple makes use of Micro-OLED technology, too, and more headsets in question are all expected to adopt the technology over the next couple of years. The said glasses from Lenovo have 1,920×1,080p resolution per eye as well as a 60Hz refresh rate, which you should know should at least make for solid gaming.
What Gamers Should Expect With Playing Games with a Floating Wearable Display
The whole idea of playing games on a floating wearable display is not as weird as you think. Sean Booker of CNET liked the experience of making use of a Steam Deck with Xreal Air glasses, which in question offer a similar sort of experience. And just as headphones for your eyes (sort of), it could really be fun, provided that you want to carry glasses around that you will need to plug in directly with USB-C making use of the included 1.2-meter cable.
