Meta AR Glasses: Ushering in a New Era of Wearable Tech

Meta, the tech giant formerly known as Facebook, has recently confirmed, somewhat unceremoniously, that it is working on a pair of augmented reality (AR) glasses. The announcement came tucked away at the end of a blog post celebrating the tenth anniversary of Reality Labs, the division behind Meta’s AR/VR technologies.

Although details are still sparse, the glasses were described as a product that merges Meta’s XR hardware with its evolving Meta AI software to “deliver the best of both worlds” in a sleek, wearable package.

There have been a number of leaks and speculations surrounding the new technology, and we’ve gathered all the information here to bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about the anticipated Meta AR glasses.

As for the price, it’s currently difficult to make an accurate prediction since so little is known about the glasses and no leakers have provided any ballpark estimates yet. For context, current smart glasses like the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses or the Xreal Air 2 AR smart glasses typically range from $300 to $500. However, given the advanced technology Meta is hinting at, the price could be substantially higher.

Meta’s AR glasses could end up costing around $1,500, similar to what the original Google Glass smart glasses launched at. A higher price point seems more likely considering the novelty of the AR glasses and the fact that Meta would need to pack small yet powerful hardware into them—a combination that usually leads to higher costs.

This development could not only revolutionize the way we use technology in daily life but also set a new standard for wearable smart devices. With this move, Meta continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible with wearable technology.
