 GLOW. A Magnificent Convergence Of Reality And Imagination.

Finally, our latest series is here: GLOW. 

Another ground-breaking launch only a year after our release of Vader in 2018. We have always been wanting to make mixed reality (MR) smart glasses just like GLOW- lightweight, stylish and super portable- we are getting closer to our ideal.


Simply Plug & Play.

Our latest MR smart glasses, GLOW, is a new replacement of tablets and laptops. It is a binocular mixed reality glasses in a hybrid form. By simply plugging and playing, you can connect GLOW  to your Android phone via USB-C display port – it is SUPER EASY. You can control your phone and view what’s on it right on the MR glasses. Keep your head straight and your hands free from your phone!

Light. Foldable. Portable. 

As a binocular MR smart glasses, GLOW is lightweight: 75g only. You can wear it for any usage, and GLOW will never get in the way of things! More importantly, it's foldable and you can put it in your pocket.


 Royal Fit for Everyone. 

Comfort and style are always our big considerations. We want our MR smart glasses to fit perfectly on everyone and anyone. In fact, GLOW is designed to fit your interpupillary distance (IPD) better to avoid fatigue or nausea. Here is the good news: you don’t need to adjust the displays anymore because we have already done that for you, just to make it easier for you.


Big Screen, Small Device. 

45° FOV equivalent to viewing a 90" screen from 3 meters away.

GLOW is not just compact and lightweight. It also projects sharp and clear images. You can now play games or watch movies on GLOW with the utmost visual quality.


Pocket-Sized Personal Cinema

GLOW is also a personal cinema that fits in your pocket. You can bring it with you anytime, anywhere, and immerse yourself in your favourite movie as if you were watching it on 90-inch screen from 3 meters away.

3D Viewing Experience. Get The Most Out Of GLOW.

Yes. GLOW is also a 3D-enabled MR smart glasses. Other than 2D contents, you may also watch 3D movies and enjoy the stunning viewing experience on this compact gadget.


Live In The Moment. Play In The Moment.
