A Glimpse into the Future of Sightseeing

Imagine strolling through the streets of Paris, the Eiffel Tower looming in the distance. With Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses perched on your nose, you gaze at the monument, and instantly, a voice whispers in your ear, detailing its history and architectural significance. This isn’t a scene from a sci-fi movie; it’s the reality Meta is crafting with its innovative smart glasses.

The Technology Behind the Vision

The new “Look and Ask” feature is the cornerstone of this experience. By simply looking at a landmark and asking for information, the glasses’ built-in camera scans the scene, cross-referencing the image with Meta AI’s extensive knowledge database. Within moments, the glasses provide fascinating facts about the landmark.

Bridging the Gap Between Technology and Tourism

Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses are redefining the concept of a tour guide. No longer do you need to rely on bulky guidebooks or join crowded tour groups. Instead, you have a discreet, stylish, and personalized guide that offers information at a glance. This feature is perfect for travelers who crave knowledge and context without sacrificing spontaneity or style.

The Beta Experience: A Sneak Peek into the Future

Currently, in beta, this landmark recognition feature is a glimpse into the potential of wearable AI technology. While it’s still being refined, users can join a waitlist to experience these experimental features firsthand, provided they’re based in the US.


Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses are a testament to the power of partnership and innovation. As they become AI-powered tour guides, they offer a new way to experience the richness of our world’s history and culture. With Meta’s vision, the future of travel and exploration is right before our eyes—literally.

Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses are set to change the way we interact with our surroundings, making every journey an informative and immersive experience. As we look forward to more advancements, one thing is clear: the future looks bright, and it’s wearing Ray-Bans.
