Razer launches smart glasses


Razer is a company known for its gaming peripherals and computers, but it appears that the company is expanding the products it offers. Indeed, it looks like the company decided to step into the wearable space with the announcement of the Razer Anzu, smart glasses.

Before you get too excited about the prospect of augmented reality-based glasses, however, this isn’t where Razer is headed, at least not yet. If anything, the Anzu seems more like regular glasses with some added technology, like open-ear audio, that lets you hold voice calls without a headset and microphone, as these are essentially built into the glasses themselves.

The glasses also have Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, which should reduce energy consumption. According to Razer, users with the glasses’ microphone and speakers should get up to 5 hours of battery life on a single charge. Users can also fold the glasses when not in use, essentially turning them off.

In addition to these features, the glasses come with lenses that provide 35% blue light filtering. There are also polarized replacement lenses that can protect the wearer’s eyes from 99% of UVA / UVB rays, so you can use them as sunglasses as well. The glasses also have touch-based controls that can be used to control music playback. The Razer Anzu is priced at $ 200 and can be purchased through the Razer website.
