Nreal, developer of ready-to-wear mixed reality glasses, announced Nebula, today at CES, the first 3D system that turns the traditional 2D smartphone browsing experience into a 3D mixed reality experience. By supporting all Android native apps, Nreal Light offers consumers access to the millions of apps that can be immediately accessed right out of the box.
Previously available as invite-only to limited Nreal Developer Program applicants, the awaited developer package for Nreal called the “Nreal Light Developer Kit” will begin selling and shipping in a month on a rolling basis to all developers. The developer package, retailing for $1,199 USD includes a Nreal Light glass, a 3 DoF controller and Nreal’s proprietary computing pack.
“We’re excited to announce the pre-order program and make Nreal Light Developer Kit available for the first batch of developers. This early access will allow developers to migrate existing apps onto Nreal Light’s platform or build new, innovative Mixed Reality applications,” said Chi Xu, CEO, and Founder of Nreal.
To further establish Nreal’s global footprint, Nreal’s market entry into Korea begins today with its partnership with LGUplus, which will see the launch of a trial service, ahead of Nreal Light’s expected commercialization in the first half of 2020. The trial service jointly establishes a 5G customer experience zone that will be expanded to 35 stores and 5 pop-up stores nationwide in Korea.
