A wearable computer in a glasses form-factor
Project Aria glasses utilize groundbreaking technology to help researchers gather
information from the user’s perspective, contributing to the advancement of egocentric research in machine perception and augmented reality.
Project Aria is used by Meta and research partners to explore a wide variety of use cases and proofs of concept for research across AR and AI
We design our products with a privacy-first approach.
For Project Aria, Meta is committed to providing people visibility into what information is being captured, clearly signaling when capture is occurring and creating clear processes to protect the information that is recorded. Participants will only record in either Meta offices, wearers’ private homes (with consent from all members of the household), or public spaces, and won’t record in private venues without written consent from such places. When the device is collecting data, it will display a white light to let people know it’s recording. Before any information gathered in a public place is made available to our researchers, it will be automatically scrubbed to blur faces and vehicle license plates.
AR devices and experiences will eventually enable deep connections between people and the things that matter most to them, providing more utility and information while decreasing the time spent looking down at various devices. Our approach to building an AR ecosystem will always put people before opportunity. See our responsible innovation principles for more information about how we’re building products with a privacy-first approach.
For the broader research community Meta offers a kit that includes Project Aria glasses, tools, and services needed to conduct independent studies to help shape the future of AR.
