Sony could make any eyewear extra like Google Glass
Sony has simply introduced a brand new attachable show module that may flip a “pair of trendy glasses, goggles, sun shades, or different sort of eyewear” into smartglasses. And, sure, it is utterly removable so you’ll be able to take away it everytime you need to. This module is comprised of a management board the place the Bluetooth and WiFi sensors, processor and different elements stay, together with a 640×400 OLED microdisplay that serves as your display. The corporate sees an extended listing of potential purposes for sports activities, work and leisure, so it plans to offer “associate organizations” with an SDK.
Except for software program creating companions, we reckon there might nicely be hardware makers trying to incorporate the module in their very own units. Sony’s digital camera sensors, for example, are present in Apple’s iPhones. That is why we would not be solely stunned if Google chooses this single-lens show for its subsequent-gen Glass eyewear — in any case, Mountain View’s already ditching TI’s OMAP processor for Intel — regardless that this can barely enhance the system’s 640×360 decision. Sony plans to start out mass manufacturing in 2015, so we’ll probably hear about new units outfitted with this module in a yr or two.
