Tech giant Asus has made its debut in the wearable display market with the Asus AirVision M1, unveiled at CES 2024 (Consumer Electronic Show 2024). The Asus AirVision M1 may sound like a competitor to the Apple Vision Pro, but it’s not a mixed-reality device.

The AirVision M1 boasts a micro OLED display with a 1080p resolution, delivering crisp visuals in a compact form factor. Its 57-degree vertical field of view creates the illusion of a large virtual screen, akin to watching a 200-inch TV from just three meters away.

Users can choose between 16:9, 21:9, and 32:9 aspect ratios for optimal viewing depending on the content.

Unlike many standalone smart glasses, the AirVision M1 relies on a wired connection to your laptop, smartphone, or gaming console through a DisplayPort Alt Mode USB-C cable.

To navigate this virtual workspace, Asus has equipped the AirVision M1 with a multi-function touchpad on the left temple. Users can control brightness, adjust screen placement, pause or play media, and even activate a 3D mode for an enhanced viewing experience.
