BEIJING — Hainan Airlines this week began allowing passengers on some routes to use Rokid’s augmented reality glasses for free for in-flight entertainment, the tech startup announced Thursday.

Chinese startup Rokid has claimed that this is the first time that augmented reality glasses – which allow computer-generated images to be overlaid on the real world – have been widely used in flights. Passengers can watch 3D movies, read e-books and play simple games using the glasses, rather than doing so on a built-in screen.
