I got my first experience with the RayNeo Air 2 XR Glasses at CES 2024, and was pretty impressed. Actually, I did see them last year at CES, but they were behind glass. This year, I was able to connect to a game and experience the full look.
RayNeo Air 2
This is a pair of XR glasses that emulate a screen of 201 inches in front of your face using the Sony Micro OLED Display technology. 120Hz refresh rate will mean you’ll be able to play games on your favorite console that allows connection, and not experience frame lag.
The glasses produce 600 Nits of light, allowing viewing in dark and light room situations. And when the glasses are on, you’ll have a 46 degree field of view, while keeping the rest of your eyes in the real world.
I got to use the RayNeo Air 2 on a Nintendo Switch, but it will work with any device that can do USB-C Video. This includes, Playstation 5, XBox, PC, Mac, Android, and iPhone 15 / iPad.
Upon wearing, they felt like any other pair of glasses. I did have to wear over my own glasses, but that didn’t seem to be a problem.
The USB-C connection is in the back of the right bow, so the cord will put a little weight on that side of your head.
There is no stabilization inside the headset for the screen. Therefore, when you move your head, the screen moves as well. However, the company has your eye care in mind, prioritizing with TÜV Rheinland Certified Eye Comfort. This helps in strain and fatigue for long play.
The RayNeo Air 2 is designed for prescription lenses through a magnetic solution. Therefore, you can snap in your prescription, then when someone else uses the glasses, they can use lenses that work better for them.
Price and Availability
This is the other AR Glasses RayNeo has to offer. These will be more for adding a personal assistant to your everyday use. In-headset navigation, weather, AR identification, and more.
Make calls, take notes, or listen to music. The in-glasses camera allows for photos and video.
There will also be a binocular mode, so you can zoom in on action like your kid’s soccer or baseball match.
The X2 glasses will be available later this year.
