Sony SED-E1 SmartEyeglass Gives You a Sneak Peek Into the Future; More Info Available at B&H

The New Developer Edition Augmented Reality Glasses Are Now Shipping

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 16, 2015) - Your vision for the future just got a little clearer, thanks to the innovative engineers at Sony. Using advanced holographic waveguide technology encased in lightweight eyewear, the new super-thin SmartEyeGlass lenses sport both high transparency and excellent brightness so that your vision is not encumbered by splashy graphics. Instead, Sony envisions that developers will create apps where you can watch a sports game and see stats highlighted right before your eyes, or go shopping and see prices appear in your field of vision. Sony SED-E1 SmartEyeglass connects to a compatible smartphone, where the apps are running.

The module is made up of two parts: the optical engine, which projects images and text using micro display (µDisplay) technology, and a holographic waveguide, an extremely thin transparent plate of glass measuring just 1mm. The green monochrome 8-bit heads-up display also contains a 3MP camera, along with an accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor, microphone, and noise suppression sub microphone.
