BMW simply revealed some new glasses for driving its bikes and scooters, however this new set of glasses is something however bizarre. They’re formally known as the ConnectedRide Smartglasses, and you’ll pair them together with your two-wheeled BMW.
When you set them up, the glasses primarily perform as a head-up show for driving. There’s a projector constructed into the right-eye body that places important data immediately in your visual view. Vitals like velocity, the posted velocity restrict, gear and navigation instructions can all be chosen and projected from the glasses. You can even change the colour of the projection to your suiting. Identical to a automotive’s HUD, it appears to be like just like the projection is on the horizon or street forward of you.
The glasses themselves are solely midway dorky trying with their particularly thick rims, however your helmet will seemingly cowl up the glasses anyway. There are two lens choices you possibly can swap between, one with 85% transparency that’s designed to work with helmets that have already got solar visors, and the opposite has tinted lenses that perform as sun shades. BMW says they’ll even be adjusted by an optician, so people that want conventional glasses can use these whereas driving.
BMW says the glasses’ battery will last as long as 10 hours on a full cost and could be charged with a easy USB cable. The value is a steep €690 (about $757) at launch, however pricing for the glasses within the U.S. might fluctuate. These glasses are occurring sale this month, so you need to be capable to snap some up quickly sufficient.
