The concept of "smart glasses" suffered a fiasco several years ago due to the fact that the first-born Google Glass had to "embrace the immense", which it did not work out. Therefore, many manufacturers are trying to make the new generation of wearable augmented reality devices highly targeted. For example, ADAMAAS focuses on helping people with disabilities, Golden-i creates glasses for the industry, and the new Lenovo New Glass C200 is supposed to make life easier for office workers.
Structurally, New Glass C200 consists of two modules. The brain - a control unit with software for Linux - is attached to the belt and connected via LTE with glasses - a headset with a display for the right eye. The glasses weigh only 60 grams, but can accommodate a camera, microphone and other sensors. If necessary, the computing power of the gadget is increased by connecting a smartphone, in the memory of which you can store specific software for work purposes.
What does New Glass C200 do? What they teach - Lenovo is using its proprietary NBD Martin neural network to create themed applications for the glasses. It is emphasized that this is within the power of non-professional developers, for example, the director can draw up and send to subordinates instructions in augmented reality format for working at a new facility.
The New Glass C200 system can record video in 1080p format, recognize up to 20 different types of three-dimensional objects and display the image on a custom display. For the design of applied tools in augmented reality, the proprietary editor NBD Titan is used. Whether this platform is open, how much software development will cost, how much Lenovo smart glasses cost - there is no data yet.
News should be expected by June, which is scheduled to start mass production of new items.
