Smart Glasses owns no strong history. Back in 2013, Google comes with a prototype of Google Glass which is kinda standard eyeglasses with the lens replaced by a head-up display. In 2018, a different company, Intel comes with the totally new concept of how Smart Glasses looks alike. The Vaunt, SmartGlasses by Intel, totally resembles the ordinary Glasses you generally wear. It weighs just 50 grams with all the features a smart glasses should have maybe.
Appearances of Vaunt
It has a little red monochrome projector. The projector shines an image on a holographic mirror which then bounces it directly into eyeball so, you don’t have to focus on it. It is a heads-up display which shows some red text. You can see notifications and information like walking directions, an incoming call notification.There aren’t any sort of beeps or vibrations going on. You just simply notice what happens in your peripheral vision.
The best part is if you don’t want to see the notification, it just disappears. As the display panel is slightly below (specifically 15 degrees) the line of regular sight. The other thing is you aren’t gonna be taping or swiping and doing whatever you might do in Google Glasses.
Hardware on Vaunt
These Glasses includes a compass and an accelerometer which helps it to detect the direction you are heading and basic head gestures. There is no camera. It is meant to be not annoying in social situations. On the right stem, there are some electronics to power a very low-powered laser (VCSEL). There is a holographic reflector on the right lens which produces 400 x 150 pixels monochrome image. The left side of Glasses also houses electronics, so the weighs on both sides are equal.
Later this year, developers are gonna be able to start using them. If you have any queries about the models, feel free to drop them in the comment section below.
