Lenovo launched a new Think about reality device for CES 2021, and the company claims it’s “one of the most advanced and versatile smart glasses” for businesses. The manufacturer presents the ThinkReality A3 as a pair of smart glasses that can be used for applications like 3D visualization and guided augmented reality workflows at a time when the world is “looking to embrace new technologies for smart collaboration.” Unlike the first ThinkReality model, the A6, which looks like your typical mixed reality headset, this one looks more like a pair of (thick) sunglasses. However, companies can modify it with Lenovo’s industrial frame options to make it more durable or more secure.
The ThinkReality A3 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 SoC for virtual and mixed reality headsets. It can display up to five 1080p virtual screens and has an 8-megapixel camera that can deliver 1080p video, as well as two fish-eye cameras for room-scale tracking. The headset must always be connected to a PC or Motorola smartphone powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor or better via USB-C to work.
