TCL, which has a habit of showing off display technology that may or may not ever see the light of day, has released a video showing a concept for a set of augmented reality smart glasses with micro LED displays.

In other tech news from around the web, Microsoft plans to bring support for running Android apps to Windows 11 eventually, but the feature’s not ready for prime time yet. New photos apparently leaked by someone in China show what it will look like though. Compulab’s next tiny fanless computer is on the way. And Pine64’s E Ink tablet will be ready to ship to more developers soon.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news.

The Raspberry Pi 400 is a computer-in-a-keyboard. But now you can also plug it into any PC and use it as… just a keyboard. You’ll need to install the pi400kb app and change some Raspberry Pi OS config files to do it though.

  1. I really want Smart Glasses hardware, but I absolutely do not want anyone’s services or software bundled with it. Especially anything with its own camera/mic/location hardware integrated.

    I really hope in the near future we see someone making Smart Glasses with an open-source ethos. Like maybe a simple Linux-based OS, along the lines of what we’re seeing with open source smart watches, but perhaps more horsepower, to accomplish things like a browser, or video playback.

  2. I like the multidevice concept and new human machine interfaces. More choice can be better, I don’t think we’ve scratched these surfaces. Smartphones are hardly only device and although one selling point is everything in one device, i.e. convergence, there is room for divergence for people who are not so budget all-in-one oriented.

  3. My local public library has Raspberry Pi 400s set up in the stacks for checking the online catalog. The keyboard part isn’t terrible, but is worse than the basic wired keyboard that came with your desktop or that you can pick up for $20 at Newegg. Using it just as a keyboard seems like a huge waste.
