Windows support is coming to Nreal Air AR glasses. The company has announced Nebula for Windows, which lets you view your PC on the virtual equivalent of an ultra-wide monitor.
Unreal states that gaming is the primary use of his glasses, which connect to an external device to show content on a virtual private screen. The company cites a recent survey showing that 68% of Nreal Air owners use glasses to play games, making Windows support a top priority.
The company claims that Windows users will enjoy a virtual curved gaming monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio. Nreal suggests that this setup is especially ideal for those looking to play cockpit games, where a wide field of view is beneficial. Furthermore, Nebula for Windows will support three degrees of freedom (3-DoF), which means that it will follow the movements and rotations of the head, but not the tilt or displacement in space.
Nreal hasn’t announced a precise release date yet, but will be showcasing Windows support at GDC 2023 in San Francisco this week. It will also showcase “next-generation casual AR games for mobile” at that event, in an effort to spur Android game development for the popular wearable.
Nreal presented its first model of AIR glasses, Nreal Lightto consumers a year ago after dismissing Magic Leap’s accusation of its founder stealing trade secrets to build his own company. The Air still needs to connect to a phone like the Light, but it’s much lighter (77 grams against the 106 of Light) and looks more like a normal pair of sunglasses than its predecessor. Noreal claims it has a better display as wellcapable of projecting a huge virtual screen up to 201 inches in size.
