Enter a new world of information with the Developer Edition of the Sony SmartEyeglass Heads-Up Display. These glasses make use of holographic waveguide technology, which allows for 3mm thick, highly transparent AR lenses with high brightness. They project a green monochromatic overlay onto each lens, displaying various types of information in a heads-up display format. When connected to your smartphone, you can use your SmartEyeglass with specially-designed apps to navigate, view location-based tweets, control your smartphone with your voice, translate in real time, and more.

The SmartEyeglass is connected to a controller with a touch sensor that lets you navigate through onscreen menus. It also contains a talk button, back button, speaker, microphone, and a micro-USB charging port, as well as indicators for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and charging. A clip on the back attaches it to clothing and a shutter button controls the glasses' 3MP camera.

This Developer Edition model also lets you create your own apps: the SmartEyeglass SDK includes a smartphone emulator, sample code, guides, API references, and support information. You can take advantage of the glasses' camera, microphone, speaker, compass, gyroscope, and light sensor as well as the Wi-Fi connection and Bluetooth 3.0 connection to your Android smartphone. Apps can be created for everything from real-time stats at sporting events to hands-free assembly instructions for factory and assembly line workers.

Note:
This product is not intended for use by children. Therefore, children should not use it. Additionally, this device cannot be worn with traditional eyeglasses, and you may not be able to use this product if your interpupillary distance is outside the range of 54.5 to 72.5 mm.

Camera Integration

A built-in 3MP camera lets you easily snap pictures with the controller's dedicated camera button or use facial recognition apps.

High Transparency Display

The SmartEyeglass features a binocular display with 1,000 cd/m2 brightness for high readability and 3mm-thick lenses with 85% transmittance for great transparency.

Enhanced Sensor Array

In addition to its 3MP CMOS image sensor, the SmartEyeglass is equipped with built-in accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, and a brightness sensor to help provide a trule immersive experience.

Hands-Free Use Cases

Developers can combine the SmartEyeglass sensors and camera with the powerful features of compatible smartphones to create unique hands-free use cases. See your favorite sport stats in real time, get hands-free assembly instructions displayed in front of you, and even see real-time directions while you're on the move.

Lightweight and Comfortable

Weighing in at 77g, the SmartEyeglass is both well-balanced and comfortable to wear.

Long-Lasting Battery Life

The lithium-ion battery recharges in approximately two hours and provides up to 150 minutes of continuous use or up to 80 minutes with the camera on.

The SmartEyeglasses can pair your smartphone's Bluetooth connection traditionally or by tapping your NFC-enabled device against the NFC tag in the controller.

The SmartEyeglass device provides a built-in camera which enables users to take still pictures and record videos from the user’s point of view. The camera sensor data is available through the SmartEyeglass API. Your app can use the camera raw data for image processing, or to store still pictures or JPEG streams on the host device.

It's a developer kit. The glasses have no camera. You would have to develop software and add a camera.

question

Can it be linked to display mapping and directional info - thinking of them for a long cycling trip ?
Asked by: Anonymous
As far as I can tell, this product is a developer kit, and does not have a set of apps currently available that would allow what you are requesting. Perhaps someone will develop such an app for this product in the future. Check the Recon Jet for now.
