I’m not a gamer but I really want Razer’s smart glasses — for work

Razer‘s products are usually designed for gamers, and I, an Apple Arcade person, can’t claim to be one. I don’t sit on my gaming chair to fire up  a custom PC to play the latest titles with graphics settings at full blast.

However, the company’s latest product has piqued my interest, and I imagine I’m not alone: a pair of smart glasses. Before you jump the gun, no,it doesn’t show you a ton of information via Augmented Reality (AR), like Google Glass and the rest.

In terms of smart features, these glasses can connect to your phone or computer through Bluetooth. You can take voice or video calls through an in-built mic and speakers. You can also listen to music through these open-design speakers with 16 mm drivers. Plus, you can control tracks and activate voice assistants through a touch-enabled side panel.

I know these functions are available on a pair of headphones, but something about having them in your glasses is attractive.
