However, these new pair of smart glasses are focused to be used for business and commercial-use like production houses and factories. The aim is basically an easy and quick flow of data to several employees working at one particular place.
The New AR Glass C200 is pretty easy to use and offer clear and guided instructions in front of the user’s eye. It gives the right suggestions about how to use these smart glasses while collaborating with other co-workers, taking snap and even recording videos in 1080p.
