Sony made a wearable to make your glasses ‘smart’

December 18, 2014

A microdisplay to be placed over your glasses that will display relevant information.

Google Glass hasn’t gone mainstream as of today despite being released for than a year now, but that wouldn’t stop companies from making their own wearables that would hopefully offer something different.

With this in mind, Sony has announced that they are developing an attachable Single-Lens Display Module that you can put on your existing glasses to turn them into ‘smart glasses’.

The device uses a high-resolution color OLED microdisplay that you can easily clip over your glasses. From there it can display various bits of information useful for fitness and business users, and Sony will be developing SDK kits which will let developers make their own apps available for the platform. The device will also include an ARM-base Cortex A7 Processor, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and a 400 mAh battery.

A preview of the device will be shown at CES 2015 next month.
