These glasses, which were patented three months ago by the researchers of the British company XRAI Glass, with two screens of augmented reality (Augmented Reality) and an application can provide any content in the form of text to a deaf person. Therefore, a deaf or hard of hearing person can use these glasses to understand the conversations of those around them, as well as phone calls.
Of course, these glasses are not without problems and there are defects in it. For example, this device works only in environments that are not crowded and cannot convert the words of several people into text at the same time. Also, the lenses of these glasses are like black sunglasses, which may not suit everyone’s taste.
For this reason, this British company is currently testing 100 of these glasses in the market in September and will produce more if they are popular.
These glasses will only be available in a few countries at a price of 399 pounds, equivalent to $484, along with its special app. Of course, buyers who wish to receive some additional facilities and services must pay a separate amount.
Unfortunately, these days, with the epidemic of the corona virus and the use of masks by more people, the deaf have faced difficulties in understanding the words of those around them; Because these people rely on lip reading skills to understand what others are saying. Now, using augmented reality glasses, these people can easily understand the conversations of the people around them, even with a mask.
Although hearing-impaired people can understand more or less what is happening around them using phone applications, these glasses help them to read the conversations around them without the need for a phone.
