Sony has shown a prototype of "smart" glasses

The Japanese company Sony has unveiled a prototype of SmartEyeglass smart glasses. Their presentation took place at the Wearables DevCon developers conference.

Sony's SmartEyeglass glasses, unlike its potential competitor Google Glass, are equipped with a separate control unit that connects to the glasses using ... a wire. But it is possible that in the final version, the connection will still be carried out wirelessly. The glasses do not have a color, but a monochrome green display. There is also a small camera, microphone, accelerometer, gyroscope, light sensor, compass and Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n modules. SmartEyeglass works in conjunction with Android smartphones.

It is reported that with the help of glasses, the user will be able to find out the score and the names of the players while watching sports matches, receive navigation prompts, read incoming SMS messages and view missed calls. Apparently, their functionality is not limited to this.

In fairness, it should be noted that the developers were not presented with the final version of the product, but only its prototype. And Sony will certainly improve SmartEyeglass further. The release date of Sony smart glasses is still unknown to us.
