Some augmented reality (AR) wearables such as glasses include powerful features such as live transcription. However, such features are constrained by the relatively low processing power and limited battery capacity of AR wearables. , necessitated by the small size and limited space availability. AR wearables need to be taken off for charging since there is no convenient way to charge the device during use. This disclosure describes a smart hat, a head-worn accessory that includes a solar panel and battery. The smart hat can be connected to an AR wearable via an interface and can charge the AR wearable. The smart hat may also include a processor and memory that enables the AR wearable to offload processing or storage tasks to the smart hat by performing data transfer via the interface.
