Lenovo launches ThinkReality A3 smart glasses


Lenovo introduced ThinkReality A3 smart augmented reality glasses at CES 2021, and like Lenovo's ThinkReality A6 augmented reality glasses in 2019, ThinkReality A3 focuses on delivering modern digital solutions to organizations.

Compared to the previous version, the new ThinkReality A3 appears to be smaller and lighter, and Lenovo says these smart glasses are suitable for use as sunglasses, and can also be strengthened by using improved industrial framework options for safer and more durable use.

Run by Snapdragon XR1, ThinkReality A3 features 1080p stereoscopic displays that allow users to see up to 5 virtual screens.

An 8MP RGB camera provides 1080p video for expert remote use cases, and the dual camera provides room range tracking.

Smart glasses can be connected to a computer or Motorola smartphone selected via USB-C cable depending on the state of use.

"ThinkReality A3 is a next-generation augmented reality solution, lightweight, powerful and versatile," said Jon Pershke, Lenovo's Vice President of Strategies, Start-Up business, and smart devices group.

"Smart glasses are part of Lenovo's comprehensive integrated digital solution that includes advanced augmented reality device, ThinkReality, and Motorola mobile phones, and whether it's working in virtual spaces or supporting remote assistance, ThinkReality A3 enhances workers' ability to do more wherever they are.

ThinkReality A3 is offered in the standard PC version of virtual screens where it can be connected to a laptop or mobile workstation to enable users to place multiple and large virtual screens in their field of vision.

The glasses also support windows software tools and applications, and Lenovo looks forward through these glasses to increase the value of computers, and to create more productivity, privacy and immersive experiences for industries, such as finance and architecture, as well as for any remote and mobile worker where space and privacy are limited.

Lenovo also announced an industrial version of ThinkReality A3 designed to improve decision-making in complex environments.

One can link this version to Motorola's designated smartphones to perform augmented reality-supported tasks in complex hands-free work environments.

They can be used in scenarios ranging from factory and laboratory floors to busy retail and hospitality spaces.

With the support of the ThinkReality software platform, customers can create, publish and manage mixed reality applications and content on a global scale, with global support.

Lenovo also offers ready-made applications based on the ThinkReality platform that supports remote assistance, guidance workflow, and 3D imaging.

Lenovo's ThinkReality A3 smart augmented reality glasses are available in selected markets around the world starting in mid-2021 and are intended for enterprise customers rather than retail users.
