Mark Zuckerberg disclosed in an earnings conference that Facebook's Ray-Ban smart glasses will be the company's next hardware offering. Zuckerberg added that their next product launch would be the introduction of their first smart glasses from Ray-Ban in collaboration with Essilor Luxottica. It seems that the glasses have an iconic shape and allow you to perform some really cool things. We don't know precisely what these smart glasses will be capable of, but we do know they won't be fully AR. First reported on rumors of a Ray-Ban/Facebook cooperation was in 2019.A firm release date, and whether Facebook will be able to release in 2021 is undecided. Facebook's Project Aria is also working on AR glasses, but the cooperation with EssilorLuxottica is meant to be a stepping stone. Facebook has ruled out the usage of augmented reality or any type of display on the Ray-Ban collaboration, leaving just a Snap Spectacles-style gadget with cameras. Or so we believe. The privacy issues are already being heard. Smart glasses will offer far simpler functionality than AR specs, which will add a virtual layer to your day-to-day interactions.According to Leo Gebbie, a senior analyst for XR and Wearables at CCS Insight, these glasses won't be an AR gadget, probably employing audio or cameras but won't give any type of heads-up display to a user. This will make them seem extremely similar to Snap's Spectacles, but with the added benefit of a Ray-Ban tie-in. Gebbie explained that Facebook's smart glasses products are striving to be stylish as well as practical and that the decision to bring on a well-known eyewear brand like Ray-Ban was smart.
