Facebook smart glasses to launch soon but without AR


What's the news?

Facebook Inc.’s planned smart glasses will arrive “sooner than later” in 2021, but won’t feature the kind of digital overlay technology that is associated with augmented reality, according to hardware chief Andrew Bosworth.


More to know

The glasses, which are being built in partnership with Ray-Ban and parent Luxottica Group SpA, will connect to a device -- though users won’t be able to overlay digital objects onto their real-world view, a foundational element of AR.
