Nreal brings its $379 Air augmented reality glasses to the US

Almost exactly a year after Nreal introduced its Air augmented reality glasses, the company is bringing the device to the United States. Nreal Air, which the company is offering as a device for streaming shows and playing games, is available on Amazon starting today for $379. As with Nreal’s $599 Light goggles, the Air needs to be plugged into a phone or other device. That might be a little easier if you snag the new $59 Nreal Adapter, an HDMI-to-Lightning dongle for the iPhone.

To match this peripheral, Nreal has improved the Air’s iOS and Mac compatibility. Initially, the Air will offer screen mirroring from iOS – Nreal’s Nebula operating system doesn’t run on iPhones yet. Still, you can watch streaming video services on a 130-inch virtual display.

However, a version of Nebula will be available for MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops, Nreal said. When you connect the Air to a Mac, a user interface called AR Desktop opens up. You can view multiple virtual displays at the same time, which could make the Air useful if you need more screen real estate while travelling.

The company also redesigned Nebula. Specifically, the AR Space experience that Nreal users see when they open Nebula now has a borderless curved wall design and animated menu icons. Users can get content recommendations via a new widget that offers the ability to preview apps without having to open them. The Spatial Browser offers a horizontal mode (for multi-window web browsing) and a vertical mode for websites that require a lot of scrolling.

In addition, Nreal is adding more casual games and a few new apps. The first of these is called Teleport, which lets you explore 3D models of real objects scanned with phones. You can leave photos for other users, as well as voice and text messages. Teleport will be available later this year. Mirror mode allows users to play PC and console games on a 200-inch virtual screen. Cloud gaming services like Xbox Cloud Gaming are also supported.
