Brilliant Labs roles out AI "Frame" Glasses with Google-like Glass Display

Brilliant Labs, a developer of AI glasses, has announced the launch of its ‘Frame’ glasses that come with an integrated multimodal AI assistant.

Frame offers hands-free access to next-generation AI, which enables users to amplify their human intelligence all within a lightweight package that comes in a slim form factor similar to that of stylish eyeglasses.

According to Brilliant Labs Frame introduces a new, alternative way of interacting with the physical world, which is enhanced by an always-on AI assistant called “Noa.” Powered by an integrated multimodal generative AI system that can run multiple AI models at the same time, Noa is capable of conducting real-world visual processing, novel image generation, and real-time speech recognition and translation, according to the company.

Noa – Frame’s Multimodal AI Assistant

Noa uses a “privacy-preserving knowledge graph” to analyze compounded interactions between the user and AI assistant, enabling Noa to not only offer an individually tailored user experience but also take on a personality of its own.

For example, tasks and requests could include summarizing the page of a book into bullet points and then translating the book’s foreign language text into a preferred language; structuring a whiteboarding session into a shareable document for colleagues; identifying a skin condition to recommend off-the-shelf ointments; and even suggesting a healthy amount of coffee to drink daily, based on the nutritional value or caffeine content in a single cup.

Users can even fully leverage the glasses’ built-in multimodal generative AI capabilities, meaning that  Frame can orchestrate multiple AI systems to work together to complete more advanced tasks. For instance, by combining GPT4 with Frame’s front-facing sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), microphone, and knowledge graph, these systems can join forces to visually and acoustically measure emotional sentiment and facial cues, according to Brilliant Labs.

Frame truly offers a new paradigm in the way humans interface with the digital world, and with each other. Noa, a totally new kind of AI virtual assistant, empowers users to engage more with the world around them, not less. Our hope is that Frame enables people to connect with each other in entirely new ways, and opens up new experiences in everyday life, the workplace, the classroom, and more. This is the unique promise of bringing generative AI in front of the human eye,” said Bobak Tavangar, CEO and Co-founder of Brilliant Labs.

Frame’s Features: Designed to Be Indistinguishable From Eyeglasses

Frame itself is a pair of prescription eyeglasses that can completely replace a user’s daily worn glasses, but also offers the perks of a baked-in personal assistant, with a lightweight form factor and stylish design that’s indistinguishable from everyday eyewear, according to the company. Frame’s features include:

  • Lightweight AI Glasses – Frame weighs only 39 grams, making the device no heavier than a standard pair of eyeglasses but durable and comfortable enough to be worn all day;
  • Vivid Display – Frame’s high-resolution vivid display boasts 3,000 nits of brightness;
  • Front-Facing Spatial Camera – Frame integrates a low-power machine vision camera that accurately captures and interprets the world around the user;
  • Integrated Microphone – Users can control or speak with their AI assistant through voice inputs for a hands-free experience;
  • Multimodal AI – Wirelessly connects to a phone through Bluetooth 5 to support simultaneous generative AI inputs from Perplexity, Stability AI, GPT4, and Whisper to offer advanced solutions to real-world problems;
  • 6DoF IMU – Centrally located within the nose bridge, an advanced 6-axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) provides Frame with a three acceleration axis and three compass axis, which can be used for menu navigation, step counting, directions and more;
  • Custom Prescription Optics – Prescription lenses, in partnership with AddOptics, can be ‘Precision Bonded’ to Frame using a unique optical lens casting process.
