Xiaomi Teases Upcoming Smart Home Product: Sunglasses Again?

by Jed John 0

Xiaomi yesterday posted a poster on Weibo which announces an upcoming launch event under its crowdfunding platform. From the look of things, the phone is related to an earlier product which was launched last month, talking about the Turok Steinhardt sunglasses.

From the content of the poster, the product would be launched on Thursday, March 23 at 10 AM. Even though the upcoming product’s name is usually not included on the launch invite, the posters usually contain a tip or two which would give us an idea of what the upcoming product is. In this case, the product is likely an optical product considering the presence of a refractive glass prism on the poster.

We really don’t think this would be another sunglasses but it could be an optical product for other purposes. A glass prism separates light into its seven component colors of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, blue, indigo and violet using their different refractive indexes. This theory comes in useful in a polaroid system, so may be this could be a polaroid sunglasses. A polaroid sunglasses help reduce glare from a long, flat surface such as the hood of the car or the road’s surface, water surface or any surface with a reflective property.

We are keen on this being a sunglass because the Mi app Weibo post was re-posted by the Turok Steinhardt TS official Weibo page showing it is a product which they have vested interest. Well, perhaps. We are not so sure about that, though, so we’ll wait till when the product is official to find out what it is.
