Lenovo launches ThinkReality A3 augmented reality glasses for enterprise

Lenovo Introduces Think Reality A3 Smart Glasses That Can Show Up to 5 Virtual Displays

Lenovo has now officially announced the ThinkReality A3 Augmented Reality (AR) Smart Glasses at CES 2021, which claims to work with PC and select Motorola smartphones.

ThinkReality A3 glasses can connect to a PC or specific Motorola smartphones through a USB-C port, cited sources with relevant information.

The Lenovo ThinkReality A3 smart glasses will become available in select markets worldwide beginning in mid-2021. The pricing, however, has not been revealed.

Lenovo introduces smart glasses as part of a comprehensive integrated digital solution to deliver smart change in business and bring smart technology to more people.

"Whether working in virtual spaces or supporting remote assistance, the ThinkReality A3 enhances workers' abilities to do more wherever they are", Jon Pershke, Lenovo Vice President of Strategy and Emerging Business, Intelligent Device Group said in a statement.

The first edition is the more traditional of the two offerings with a tethered laptop or mobile workstation experience meant to power multiple, large virtual monitors in their field of view. In the interim, the A3 Industrial Edition depends on Motorola's ThinkReality software platform for hands-free AR tasks. Companies can modify it with Lenovo's industrial frame options, though, to make it more durable or safer. It can appear at five virtual 1080p displays and has a 8-megapixel camera that can give 1080p video, as well as double fish-eye cameras for room-scale tracking. These displays can be 3D visuals, Augmented Reality (AR) assisted workflows or virtual monitors for your desktop windows.

As a platform, the ThinkReality A3 can be used both in the office in front of a computer and on the factory floor as a mobile device. As per Tech Crunch, the glasses follow the announcement of the "ThinkReality A6" head-mounted display, which offers a more traditional form factor (insofar as there is a traditional form factor for AR, I suppose). For advanced, high-performance mixed reality and virtual reality applications, Lenovo offers a portfolio of workstations certified to work with various Varjo XR/VR headsets and is a reseller of Varjo's human-eye resolution solutions.
