Sony SmartEyeglass Developer’s Kit Released




/ 5 years ago

Sony SmartEyeglass

Sony announced its entry into augmented reality eyeglasses with its SmartEyeglass last autumn. Now that it is ready to sell in 10 countries it has released the developer’s edition.

The developer edition of the SmartEyeglass hardware has a 3MP camera, gyroscope, accelerometer, electronic compass, and a brightness sensor.   The augmented reality glasses allow you to see text and images while viewing the world around you.

SmartEyeglass works in conjunction with a connected Android smartphone. It can work with apps on the smartphone just as Android Wear devices do. The eyeglasses themselves are a rather bulky looking set, with large frames attached to an external controller by a wire; the external controller contains a battery, speaker, touch sensor, microphone, and NFC.

I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing these, so let’s hope the final version is a little more stylish.
