Since Google removed the Model Explorer to redesign their Google Glass and set them to end users, it seems that we we have a little break with the topic of augmented reality glasses. But not everything is what it seems, and Sony has surprised this morning announcing the launch of the Developer Edition of their SmartEyeglass in April.
Unlike the Google, the SmartEyeglass are binocular glasses with a remote-controlled being connected to them with a cable. They will include a monochrome display of 8-bit more than 85% of transparency, 3 megapixel camera with speakers and microphone, and can be used for devices with Android 4.4 or higher.
With a weight of 77 grams, as we see in the video goggles even they have a long way to go before having a design that makes them wearable without attracting attention, but for that serve this type of previous editions, to obtain the first feedback on that base before redesign them in search of a final Edition.
The Sony SmartEyeglass cost 810,70 euros, almost half the Google Glass, and can purchased freely from the first week of April in the United States, Japan, Germany and United Kingdom, while in other countries such as Belgium, Italy, Sweden, France, Holland and Spain its marketing will be limited to business.
Augmented reality is back, and Sony is now who tries to stick by force with his new glasses. Get get a similar impact that got Google with their Google Glass or will remain on the road? Do you you think, you compraríais one?
