Intel Introduces Smart Glasses That Are Simple Yet Interesting
The market will see the entry of another brand of smart glasses, from Intel, this time. Vaunt, which is the name of Intel’s smart glasses, are simple plastic framed glasses weighing less than 50 grams and bereft of buttons, cameras or touch controls and similar to regular glasses. Yet they are very interesting.
Here, the key to all notifications lies in the stems of the smart glasses which project a 400×150 pixels red, neutral image straight on to the retina. This is done by controlling a class one laser with low power capacity. The smart glasses permit disturbance-free notification checking and allow users to resort to restrained gestures and head nods for the purposes of control.
Some apps will be supported by the smart glasses which are compatible with Android and iPhone devices. Though, right now the smart glasses do not have voice assistance integrated into its system it will get it in the coming period.
The software of the smart glasses will definitely decrease the work load on smartphones just as the smart-watches and give users relevant information in an ambient environment. For example, on detecting the user location as the kitchen, a recipe can be sent by the smart glasses. With the retina receiving the beamed image, the display is workable on prescription or fashion lenses. The stems are additionally endowed with an apps processor, a Bluetooth, an accelerometer and a compass.
Though the full details with regard to the apps were not revealed by Intel, it did say that the Vaunt platform is going to be a broad one. As per the company information, an ‘early access program’ for Vaunt will be introduced for developers in the later portion of the year. Vaunt will hit the markets once Intel finds an effective marketing partner to reach them to the masses.
