Nreal Air Review: Gaming and Media Greatness Marred by Dongle Madness

Around this time last year, we reviewed the Nreal Light glasses priced at $599. This year, Nreal has released the follow-up “Air” glasses, which are lighter and cost less at just $379.

The lighter weight and lower price can be attributed to the fact that these aren’t true augmented reality (AR) glasses. The Air lacks the dual cameras of the Light; hence there are no provisions for hand tracking, image tracking or plane detection. So while the price is lower, you’re also getting less functionality. However, for the tasks that it can handle, the Air does them quite well.
