Augmented reality smart contact lenses may be years away, but the Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition can be tested at Mobile World Congress 2023 starting today. These are touted as the first wireless AR glasses to utilize distributed computing, along with a retina-level adaptive display capable of adjusting to various lighting environments.
Xiaomi’s CyberOne humanoid robot was first unveiled back in August, and we haven’t heard anything since. Well, this 5.8-foot-tall robot is now capable of drumming, or more specifically, parsing the percussion track into drum beats, which then require whole-body trajectories to be sequenced and synchronized to the music.

Unlike other camera-focused smartphones, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept lets you actually use full-sized Leica M-Series lenses. It may look similar to the standard Xiaomi 12S Ultra, but a second Type 1 50.3MP sensor was added in the middle, along with a rear camera system compatible with an adapter for the full-sized lenses.
The Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 would probably give the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 a run for its money if it were released stateside.

Tesla’s Optimus robot is coming sooner than later, but the Xiaomi CyberOne humanoid robot has beat Elon Musk to the punch. Standing 5.8-feet tall and weighing 115-pounds, CyberOne supports up to 21 degrees of freedom in motion while achieving a real-time response speed of 0.5ms for each degree of freedom, enabling it to fully simulate human movements.
Available for pre-order now in China from $895 USD, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra smartphone launches on July 6th and features a giant 1-inch camera sensor that was co-engineered with Leica.

The Xiaomi-backed Black Shark 5 Pro gaming smartphone has just launched globally, and this could be the ultimate budget-priced device in the sub-$1000 category. Its 4650mAh battery can be fully charged in a mere 15-minutes with the 120 Hyper Charge technology, and it also supports bypass charging that disables charging during gaming when external power is plugged in.
With Shanghai completely locked down, there’s no better time to make use of Xiaomi’s Cyberdog than now. Whether it be disinfecting things, delivering things, or making announcements, this robot dog is up for the job.

With the first 1,000-units priced at just $1,575 USD, Xiaomi’s CyberDog quadruped robot is a far more affordable version of Boston Dynamics’ $70,000+ USD Spot. Despite the far lower price tag, it’s still powered by NVIDIA’s Jetson Xavier NX platform, which is an AI supercomputer that includes 384 CUDA cores, 48 tensor cores, 6 Carmel ARM CPUs, and 2 deep learning acceleration engines. It uses an 11 high-precision sensor suite, including touch sensors, cameras, ultrasonic sensors, GPS modules, and more, for instant feedback to guide its movements.
