Nreal, the Augmented Reality (AR) technology company, has just rebranded to Xreal. Along with this name change, the company introduced the new Xreal Spatial Display and Xreal Beam.
Xreal Spatial Display and Beam
Xreal Spatial Display follows in the coattails of the Xreal Air previously the Nreal Air. The Spatial Display is an AR headset that can create a virtual display of up to 201 inches and features 3 Degrees of Freedom tracking. The latter is the system that ensures that the virtual display stays in a fixed position based on your body.
The headset features Smooth Follow which maintains stability when you’re on the go by countering sudden movements. Another feature is Sideview which keeps your virtual display on the side and shrinks it. This will allow you to be fully aware of your surroundings in the real world.
The Spatial Display is also paired with DTS:X Ultra which enables the spatial audio.
The Xreal Beam is a portable device that can take video via a wired connection or by a wireless screen casting protocol and sends it to the Spatial Display.
The Beam has two USB-C ports which you can also use to plug in the device for longer sessions. However, it does have a 4850mAh battery onboard that can also power the Spatial Display for 3 hours.
Xreal also announced that its app, Nebula, previously only available on Android and macOS, is now also coming to Windows with a beta version coming out soon. A version of Nebula that runs on Steam OS was also revealed to be in the works.
Xreal products are currently available via Amazon in the US and Japan but will expand to Amazon UK and Europe in Q3 2023.
