Sony Offering Its Smart EyeGlass to Developers
Sony today said a developer kit for its Smart EyeGlass will be available to developers in March. The Smart Eyeglass Developer Edition SED-E1 includes the glasses, sensors, camera, and associated software for controlling the ensemble. The Smart EyeGlass projects augmented reality images to the eyepieces of the spectacles, which still allow plenty of light to pass through so users can see both the AR content and the world around them. The developer kit will be available first in the U.K., Germany, Japan, and U.S. for about $830. Sony hopes developers put the kit to use in creating apps and experiences. The Smart EyeGlass requires an Android smartphone nearby.
