Asus wants to take on Apple Vision Pro with its AirVision M1

ASUS has rolled out a bunch of new products at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, and one of them is the AirVision M1, a fancy pair of smart glasses. However, it’s not exactly going head-to-head with the upcoming Apple Vision Pro or the mixed reality headsets showcased by other companies at the event.

The AirVision M1 is like a wearable screen that can create multiple virtual displays, allowing users to handle multiple tasks simultaneously. It comes with an FHD (1,920 x 1,080) Micro OLED display with a 57-degree vertical field of view for an immersive experience.

The device operates with a three degrees of freedom system, and users can pin multiple screens wherever they want, choosing the aspect ratio they prefer, be it 16:9, 21:9, or 32:9. Users can achieve this using the glasses’ user-friendly touchpad situated on the left temple, where they can also tweak brightness and switch on 3D mode. Additionally, the device includes built-in noise-canceling microphones and speakers.

Although the AirVision M1 might seem like a handy sidekick for those who want to work on the go, it’s not a standalone device; you need to connect it to a PC or a phone using USB-C to make it function. ASUS hasn’t spilled the beans on the price and release date yet, but based on its specs and features, it seems like it’ll be way more budget-friendly compared to Apple’s Vision Pro.

Besides, ASUS just dropped the news about a fresh mini PC at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. The ROG NUC mini gaming PC is making waves, especially since Intel spilled the beans that they’re stepping back from making their own NUC systems and counting on companies like ASUS.

For those not in the know, NUC stands for Next Unit of Compute, representing a range of super portable desktop PCs and DIY computer kits. These are fully functional systems that can fit in your hand, and the ROG NUC follows suit. Originally dubbed Scorpion Canyon, this mini PC lets you pick between Intel Core Ultra 7 or 9 processors and NVIDIA RTX 4060 or 4070 GPUs, giving you the ability to connect up to four 4K displays at the same time.
