The Frame AI Glasses, developed by Brilliant Labs, are a groundbreaking pair of augmented reality (AR) glasses integrated with a multimodal AI assistant named Noa. These glasses distinguish themselves from traditional eyewear with their smart features, packaged in a design that weighs just 39 grams, making them one of the lightest smart glasses available. They are designed to look nearly indistinguishable from ordinary eyeglasses, offering users a seamless blend of technology and fashion.

Frame’s standout feature is its AI assistant, Noa, powered by advanced AI models like Perplexity AI, Stable Diffusion by Stability AI, GPT-4 by OpenAI, and the speech recognition capabilities of Whisper. This allows the glasses to perform a variety of tasks, such as visual search, real-time translation, text summarization, and more, all projected onto the glasses’ 640 x 400 resolution lenses. Unlike other smart glasses that focus on media consumption or connectivity, Frame is aimed at enhancing daily life through AI assistance. It can analyze visual information, translate languages, and even assist with shopping by checking product prices in stores.

Brilliant Labs emphasizes the open-source nature of Frame, encouraging a community of developers and innovators to contribute to its development. This approach aims to democratize the development process and accelerate innovation by allowing anyone interested to modify and enhance the device.

Frame glasses are equipped with a high-resolution display capable of outputting 3,000 nits of brightness, ensuring visibility even in bright conditions. The display covers around 20 degrees of the user’s field of view, equivalent to holding an iPad at arm’s length, providing a clear and immersive viewing experience.

The device also supports real-time analysis for tasks like identifying details about homes when house hunting or checking product prices, without storing any files on the device or allowing sharing to social media.

Pre-orders for Frame are available at $349, with shipping expected to begin in April 2024. As a launch promotion, Brilliant Labs is offering the subscription for AI services for free, subject to a daily cap, with a paid tier to be announced in the future.

Frame AI Glasses represent a significant step towards the integration of AI into daily life, promising to make information access and environmental interaction more seamless and intuitive.
