"INFORMATION AT THE SPEED OF SIGHT"
The OsterhoutDesignGroup Qualcomm model R-6S Glasses (available mid 2015) -are self-contained Augmented Reality Smart Glasses with hardware- quoting here" Qualcomm Snapdragon™805 processor, 64GB storage, 3GB Pop LP-DDR3 RAM, and software- Qualcomm Technologies, Inc® Vuforia™(mobile vision platform) SDK for Digital Eyewear that- very nifty-adopts to a wearer's facial geometry for optimal viewing experience (more info-press release found online), and ReticleOS-an optimized Android framework for head worn computing atop Android Kit Kat.
We got to demo a pair---and can vouch for the great fit, light-weight, hands free entertainment value…and the wow factor---other attendees thought so too….as the exhibitor was right at the main entrance to the Sands Expo area…and seemingly everyone strolling by, stopped and admired. And wanted a pair.
|SO COOL-ODG's CONSUMER SMART GLASSES-imo flattering frame shape too- weighs less than 125 grams…featuring Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 805 processor and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc® Vuforia SDK for Digital Eyewear™|
Seems right now-ODG's customer base for the R6S is government and enterprise customers---but we think--the NEW and available soon -CONSUMER SMART GLASSES (pictured right above)-especially given the price-BELOW $1000- that's less than our never used Google Glasses-should be on scores of gift lists-especially gamers (so fun)---would probably want a pair.
Onboard-cutting edge mobile computing technology, 3D (really!) stereoscopic see-thru HD displays, (realistic) stereo side, high speed auto-focus camera, Android™ and Reticle OS™-WiFi, Bluetooth, GNSS location, sensors 9-axis IMU, 3x Gyroscope, 3xMagnetometer, 3x Accelerometer, magnetic connector cable for USB, integrated rechargeable batteries= like the R-6 lines.
Expect hybrid VR/AR content for these Smart Glasses soon-either new 'stuff'-or reformatted for this technology- games-movies-etc..and of course-there's a developer program software available.
