ASUS has introduced quite a lengthy list of products at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, including a high-tech eyewear called the AirVision M1. It’s not really a competitor to the upcoming Apple Vision Pro and the mixed reality headgears other companies debuted at the event, though. The AirVision M1 is a wearable display with the ability to generate multiple virtual screens, supposedly so that users can juggle several tasks at once. It’s equipped with an FHD (1,920 x 1,080) Micro OLED display that has a 57-degree vertical perspective field of view.
The device’s system has three degrees of freedom, and users can pin several screens where they want in the aspect ratio they prefer, whether it’s 16:9, 21:9 or 32:9. They can do so through the glasses’ intuitive touchpad located on the left temple, where they can also adjust brightness and activate 3D mode. The device also comes with built-in noise-canceling microphones and speakers.
While it may sound like the AirVision M1 could be a good companion for people who need to bring their work with them when they travel, it’s not a standalone wearable: It has to be connected to a PC or a phone via USB-C to work. ASUS has yet to reveal how much it costs and when it’ll be available, but its specs and capabilities indicate that it’ll cost a fraction of Apple’s Vision Pro.
