Meta Ray-Ban Smart Glasses: A User’s Perspective

Meta Ray Ban Glasses

In this review, listener Gregg Hayes from Arizona gives us his take on the Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses.

The episode features an in-depth review and demonstration of the glasses as Gregg has recently purchased the smart glasses and wanted to share his experience. Greg provides a detailed description of the glasses, including their appearance, built-in features, and functionality.

The demonstration covers various commands and interactions with the glasses’ AI, including asking for the time, weather updates, identifying objects, and recognizing products in a grocery store. Greg also showcases the video call feature using WhatsApp, where he calls his wife for assistance in navigating a KFC restaurant, illustrating the potential benefits of the glasses for visually impaired users. Throughout the demonstration, he highlights the glasses’ ease of use, voice commands, and the quality of the built-in speakers and microphones.

Furthermore, Greg compares the glasses to other assistive technologies for the visually impaired, such as Aira and Be My Eyes, noting that while the Meta Ray-Ban glasses may not offer the same level of detail in AI responses, they provide a cost-effective and versatile solution for everyday use. He also expresses concern for the future of other specialized smart glasses being developed for the blind community, as the Meta Ray-Ban glasses offer similar functionality at a lower price point without additional monthly fees.
