The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has hinted at an upcoming release of a new pair of smart glasses developed by Meta Platforms Inc. and Luxottica Group, Ray-Ban’s parent company. The FCC’s database now includes a Luxottica-branded smart glasses product, which is believed to be the second-generation Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses.
While the first iteration of Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses didn’t achieve significant user adoption, Meta is undeterred and is moving forward with enhancements for the new version. These improvements are expected to include better battery life, improved cameras, and the ability to live-stream to popular social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Notably, users will also have the ability to hear live comments from viewers through the built-in headphones.
Meta has not yet provided official comments on these developments, but further information may be revealed at the upcoming Connect conference scheduled for September 27-28.
With the advancement of technology, smart glasses have the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the world around us. From augmented reality applications to hands-free communication, smart glasses have the ability to enhance our daily lives in various ways. Companies like Meta and Luxottica are continuously working on improving the functionalities and user experience of these devices.
As we eagerly await the release of Meta and Ray-Ban’s next-generation smart glasses, it is interesting to see how these new features will impact user adoption. Will the enhanced battery life and improved cameras be enough to sway consumers who were hesitant about the first version? Only time will tell.
