As a tech enthusiast and a proud owner of the N-Real/X-Real Augmented Reality Glasses for the past 10 months, I am excited to share my experience and thoughts on this innovative product. With minimalistic design and seamless integration, these glasses have become an essential part of my augmented reality journey. In this review, I will highlight the key features, discuss my personal experiences, and mention some limitations that potential users should be aware of.
I have always been a huge fan of wearable technology. Many people know that I have been a long time Google Glass owner but my love for wearable technology actually goes back a lot further than that. My first wearable device was the Fossil Wrist PDA that ran PalmOS nearly 15 years ago!. I have since owned over 10 different generations of SmartWatches as well as Google Glass. There have been several smart glasses entering the market over the past year such as North, Vuzix and Norm. While Vuzix, and North have a established brand, the newcomer, Norm has got something special on their hands and I got to spend a few hours playing with it on Sunday. Here are my initial thoughts.
What do Android Wear SmartWatches, Pebble SmartWatches, Fitness Trackers and Google Glass have in common? They all tether to your mobile phone and consume mobile data in the background. Most people do not realize it but the amount of data these devices silently consume in the background could possibly put you over your data limit and make you incur additional charges. How much data do these devices really consume in the period of a month?
