Xiaomi was initially considered a copycat company due to its products’ semblances with Apple products. Even the first forms of MIUI were somewhat close to iOS. This earned the company the Apple of China nickname. However, in recent years, the brand broke off those wrong thoughts with innovative products coming from its own. We can list a bunch of devices like the Mi Mix series that debuted the bezel-less trend as well as other interesting products. The brand’s Research and Development efforts have brought a new patent. The patent was filed by Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software Co. Ltd showing a “smart glasses and glasses case.”
The patent details that the product is a smart glasses and a glasses case. It can integrate 4detection and treatment. This isn’t the first time that a company is studying smart glasses. However, we haven’t seen an actual end-consumer product coming from this. The details also suggest that the product emits some therapeutic signals include phototherapy signals and would wave signals. Those can be used to treat brain diseases, mental diseases, and even eye fatigue.
Xiaomi new smartwatch will have therapeutic purposes
The light therapy signal can treat brain diseases or mental diseases. The sound wave signal can treat mental illness, relieve headache or fatigue. Magnetic Waves or Electromagnetic waves can promote the absorption of missing elements or effectively promote blood circulation in the brain. Unfortunately, there aren’t many details coming about this product. However, it’s easy to know that it will also pack a speaker or sound transmission technology such as on conduction. We can’t say for sure if the product will be commercialized any time soon.
Worth noting that a patent does not necessarily mean that a new product is coming. However, if Xiaomi decides to come up with a product of this kind, it will not be a first in the industry. Huawei, for instance already has two generations of its Gentle Monster Smart Glasses. The glasses offer UV protection and also support taking and ending calls. They can play and pause music as well with dual speakers and a microphone which is assisted by an AI-powered speech noise reduction technology.
Hopefully, Xiaomi ends up with a new product of this kind. After all, smart glasses are yet to actually become mainstream devices. So far, most companies failed to make them popular among the overall customers.
