Manufacturer Bose introduced a new product at the end of October. These are Bose Frames glasses, which offer listening to music for the person who is wearing them and in addition allow Audio Augmented Realit (AAR), which is similar to augmented reality. The users can listen to music aloud but anyone else around cannot hear it and at the same time hear all the sounds from their surroundings. It is provided by the directional speakers installed in the arms of the glasses.
In addition, the users can use the AAR, which is made possible by built-in sensors and in conjunction with a smartphone recognize the exact location of the users and the direction they are looking at. The advantage is that the user does not have to hold the phone and watch the display. AAR operates autonomously.

Bose Frames are in two versions Bose Alto (with square rims) and Bose Rondo (with rounded shape). Advanced Audio Reality (AAR) gives the users in-ear audio information about where they are.
