With light to issues like the COVID-19 pandemic going on, Reliance Jio also mentioned that the Jio Glass can be used for 3D virtual classrooms, where the classes can be conducted via the Jio Mixed Reality Cloud. This will take online education a step ahead as the mixed reality factor will greatly add to how students currently take part in flat, two-dimensional online lectures.
The glasses can be easily linked to the cloud by a cable that attaches it to a smartphone. The Jio Glass itself weighs 75 grams. As per the company, it currently supports over 25 applications and more will be rolled out over the next year.
Reliance Jio also announced its 5G network in India which will be completely ‘Made in India’. The home-grown solution will be a relief amidst the ongoing geopolitical tensions with China. The company announced the Jio TV Plus, Jio Mart, Jio Meet and more as well.
