1 min read

The latest Nreal augmented reality (AR) glasses have been certified for low blue light and flicker-free by global certifier TÜV Rheinland.

The announcement came as Nreal launched the glasses, Nreal Air, in Japan. TÜV issued Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) and Flicker Free certification for the Nreal Air, the first time an AR end-use product has receive such a certification.

According to TÜV the proportion of high-energy visible blue light in the blue light spectrum emitted by the product’s micro-OLED screen is only 31 percent, while 99.5 percent of the sRGB color gamut coverage is achieved.

This means Nreal Air AR glasses are able to maintain high color performance while effectively reducing the potential impact of blue light on users' eyes.

Meanwhile, Nreal Air also meets the standard for flicker-free certification, which reduces potential visual fatigue caused by display flickering.

"Nreal is honored to receive the world's first Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) and Flicker Free Certification for AR glasses from TÜV Rheinland, which reflects our commitment to consumer health and safety," said Xu Chi,  founder and CEO of Nreal. "As the AR ecosystem continues to adapt and expand, even beginning to reach mass appeal, users' long-term health is an increasingly important consideration for Nreal. We will continue to push the boundaries of technical AR innovation as well as step up to help set and promote industry standards."

Meanwhile, Frank Holzmann, global vice-president of TÜV’s business field electrical said: "TÜV Rheinland is committed to developing new standards based on user habits. In the emerging AR/VR field, in addition to the display performance of the device, we will pay more attention to the user's visual health, such as blue light, flicker free, visual fatigue, and motion sickness.”

Holzmann added that TÜV has been working with eye hospitals and equipment manufacturers to carry out a series of visual health research initiatives, “hoping to provide more valuable reference opinions for equipment manufacturers and protect consumers' eye health.”
