These are the Lenovo Glasses T1
While the whole world is waiting for the spread of augmented reality, Lenovo is taking the first step towards smart glasses that can be connected to your Android or Windows device via USB-C cable. With iOS it gets a bit more difficult and requires some adapters.
As soon as you have connected your smartphone or laptop to the glasses, you can use your smartphone as a touchpad or as a second monitor for use with the laptop. It is also possible to mirror the display of the smartphone or laptop on the glasses.

At the event, Lenovo mentioned that it makes sense to use the glasses if you want to hide sensitive documents from your neighbors or if you need a second “workstation” quickly when you are out and about. The first impression was that it was a bit unusual to use it, since you have another "monitor" in front of your eyes while looking at the other device. The concept remains exciting and innovations are important.
We have not yet been able to test the use of iOS, since additional equipment would be required here due to the lack of an adapter.
