Starting June 1st, Vodafone Spain has announced customers will be able to purchase the Nreal Augmented Reality Glasses.

If the Nreal Augmented Reality Glasses sound familiar, that’s because we’ve covered it previously. Unsurprisingly, Epic wanted to sue due to the familiar title to Unreal Engine.

Nreal first launched in South Korea last year, with plans to launch in the US soon according to The Verge. The glasses are also available in a few European countries.

The Nreal glasses are designed for everyday use, and connects to your smartphone through a USB-C Cable to create an immersive augmented reality experience.

The glasses are not only accessible, but they also offer a high-quality experience to do six degrees of freedom tracking (also known as 6DoF).

Vodafone has also developed an augmented reality app to go along with the glasses. The app was made in collaboration with Virtual Voyagers and Optiva Media.

The app will be available free of charge, and will interact with through Nebula, Nreal’s native system for the glasses.

This announcement means that Vodafone has become the first mobile telecommunications company to support consumer AR in Spain. It is also one of the very few companies pushing consumer AR mainstream.
