We’ve seen head-mounted displays before, but none quite like this. Some offered a VR experience, mostly done not very well, and others offered personal viewing but it was a fairly mediocre proposition at best. Who can forget when LG introduced (alongside the ill-fated LG G5) its smart glasses which were just .. awful.

TCL has done something much much better, though, and the NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses look like something I’d want to actually use, and use a lot. Rather than a VR headset, these are a wearable display, allowing you to view the equivalent of a 140-inch display just by donning a pair of glasses.

These were originally shown off at CES and MWC earlier this year, but as those events were mostly not attended by anyone, they may have gone a little unnoticed. NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses brings together the very best in TCL’s global heritage in display expertise and leadership in mobile technology, combining dual micro OLED screens with portability, plug-and-play functionality, and a stylish, comfortable design.

These aren’t exactly the augmented reality glasses that Back to the Future warned us about…

The result of TCL’s hard work is a hands-free personal viewing experience that can include a portable cinema for movie lovers, an immersive world for gamers, and making sports lovers feel like they are closer to the action than ever before, whether at home or out and about.

Offering a home-theatre style experience at-home or on-the-go, the NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses boast a sophisticated design and comfortable fit, while its stylish, reflective deep black exterior offers a high-end look and feel.

Boasting leading display technology, the NXTWEAR G is integrated with 1080p high-definition Sony FHD Micro OLED panels to provide a great viewing experience. The perfectly positioned to deliver home theatre proportions, offering a 16:9 aspect ratio and emulating a 140-inch display right before a users’ eyes.

The NXTWEAR G is worn exactly like a traditional pair of glasses, with no charging required and user-friendly plug-and-play functionality that is compatible with over 100 smartphones, tablets, hybrid two-in-one devices, and laptops supporting USB-C Type-C with DisplayPort Alternate Mode. Compatible with everything from the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones, Lenovo laptops and Acer tablets, NXTWEAR G can be utilised across a wide array of technology from leading brands.

You don’t lose yourself, though, with users retaining sufficient peripheral vision to be aware of what’s going on around them if they need to be, while allowing them to immerse in a movie, sports event or gaming.

The streamlined, reflective deep black exterior of the NXTWEAR G is set against soft-touch nylon and silica gel which surround a metallic frame, creating a comfortable, skin-friendly fit and feel that’s also durable. Inside its carry case are three adjustable nose pad sizes to cater to every face shape as well as a lens adapter for a clear viewing experience for any optical prescription.

The TCL NXTWEAR G Wearable Display Glasses are available today from Harvey Norman with a recommended retailer price of $899.
