Ray-Ban glasses made by Facebook leaked: this is how they will work

Rumors that Facebook would announce augmented reality glasses in collaboration with Ray-Ban They began to circulate very strongly this week. This Thursday the images were leaked and it is already known what they would be like: sober, with just a few small cameras on the sides, faithful to the style of the company that makes one of the most famous glasses in the world.

The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, had already advanced in June an agreement with Ray-Ban, for the development of smart glasses, which later in July confirmed as their next hardware release.

For its part, Ray-Ban indicated through a poster that there will be news about this product very soon. Although many media speculate that the announcement scheduled for tomorrow would be to confirm the final release date.

This Thursday, a Twitter account released the images of the glasses:

Facebook has already revealed some details about these lenses that seem to be one more accessory to complement with the smartphone And they will include functions very similar to the Spectacles of Snapchat or the glasses of Huawei and Gentle Monster.

How would they be

The glasses from Facebook and Ray-Ban would not have an integrated screen. However, they will include the ability to answer and make calls, possibly with the help of a microphone built into the mount.

Zuckerberg’s firm has already made it clear that it is not an augmented reality device, although it was announced in the context of the virtual environment that the company wants to create in the long term, the metaverse, in which social experiences will be important. based on virtual or augmented reality.

In addition, the accessory may be capable of capture video in more than decent qualityAccording to Andrew Bosworth, Facebook’s vice president of augmented reality and virtual reality, on his Twitter profile,

Boz himself shared several clips in which they show their respective points of view and where Zuckerberg himself appears joking during what seems like a fishing weekend.

In addition, he confirmed that they would arrive with an “iconic form factor”, referencing to the classic look of lenses from the American manufacturer.

Everything suggests that they will be sunglasses, since the functions are designed to be used outside the home. However, it is unknown if Ray-Ban will allow prescription lenses.

The collaboration with Ray-Ban has a clear aesthetic objective and mark distance with the bulky Oculus Quest 2. Facebook aims to show that it can also offer products for everyday use with some technical adjustments.
