Lumus reveals classy two-tone Glass competitor with in-lens display

Lumus is a heads up display (HUD) manufacturer better known for its military-grade products, some of which have been deployed in US Air Force F-16 and A-10 helmets. Its latest effort, the DK-40 dev kit, is an attempt to steer its tech toward the consumer market. And yes, it looks a lot like Google Glass. But instead of projecting notifications on the outskirts of your peripheral vision, the entire right lens of Lumus’ Android-powered eyewear is a 640 x 480 see-through display. The DK-40 also includes a motion sensor and 5-megapixel camera necessary for a true AR experience. Though its sleek design is more socially acceptable than its fighter pilot headgear, Lumus doesn’t intend to mass-produce anything just yet. The glasses are still deep in development stages, harboring only 1-2 hours worth of battery life. Instead, the company simply wants to promote the adoption of its lens technology. The entire monocular kit and SDK will debut at CES 2014, but won’t ship to OEMs and “select developers” until the end of Q1 2014.

Vuzix designs Smart Glasses to look like sunshades, tout connected transparent display

Vuzix has announced plans to develop a stylish head-mounted display solution in the form of Smart Glasses, through a licensing partnership with Nokia. The yet-unnamed product would integrate a bright, high-contrast display with a pair of seemingly ordinary-looking sunglasses – sounds like a perfect companion to the ZionEyez in-glasses camera prototype we saw last month. In Vuzix’s words:

This amazing new technology starts with a compact display engine capable of hi contrast and brightness for outdoor use. The output is then relayed into a 1.4 mm thick plastic waveguide lens with input and output hologram structures on the surface which squeezes the light down the waveguide and then two dimensionally expands the image back into the user’s eye, creating an image that is then mixed into the real world.

Naturally, the company envisions its Smart Glasses solution as a web-connected device, letting you watch videos or browse the internet while still being able to see-and-avoid pedestrians as you walk on the sidewalk or obstacles while behind the wheel – try doing that with a Kindle or smartphone (better yet, please don’t). Vuzix expects its Smart Glasses solution to start appearing as early as this summer, but we’ll be getting an early look next week at CES.%Gallery-143034% Read more
Personal subtitle glasses from Sony may get trial run in UK next year

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard any news about those spiffy specs that put private subtitles in your field of view. It looks like they’re finally inching closer to reality though, with some help from Sony’s UK arm. The BBC recently took hard-of-hearing Brit Charlie Swinbourne to the theater and let him give the glasses a go. Rather than displaying subtitles on screen the eye-wear projects text on the lenses where only that particular user can see them. Going to see a French film in an American cinema, but your first language is Spanish? One day you could pick your language, in addition to keeping the captions out of other movie goers way. Sony hopes to trial the glasses in UK theaters next year. Check out the source link for the full report. Read more
Lumus see-through wearable display hands-on

Lumus was showing off two different types of wearable displays, the development kit – or DK-32 shown above – and the PD-18-4 a monocular version using the same technology. Driven by Lumus’ patented Light-guide Optical Element, a micro-display pod, and the Optical Engine which projects light into the lens – where it is reflected back to the user’s eye via reflectors embedded in the lens – the Lumus’ DK-32 delivers a bright 720p 3D-capable display that only weighs 27 grams. The effect is really quite impressive, the colors are bright – and adjustable using the display pod – and images were surprisingly clear. But the best part, of course, is that while you’re watching YouTube vids and walking about you’ll avoid stumbling into objects and passersby. Also on hand was the monocle which was very much like something you’d see in a science fiction flick. With the PD-18-4 we checked out a nav program, some eye tests, and a phone UI mockup. We’re stoked at what this development kit will make possible once it gets into the hands of some evil genius. Video and pictures are just past the break.

Oakley's 3D specs are a perfect blend of gaudiness and Tron: Legacy

Think run-of-the-mill 3D specs just aren’t cutting it? Need the sort of eyewear that ENCOM International would approve or? Here’s perhaps a better question: got a infinitesimally-deep hole burning in your pocket? Oakley’s recently-announced “optically-correct” 3D glasses are getting a special Tron: Legacy edition in honor of the upcoming internet documentary. Expect graphic art on the frames that, in some of the most amusing and illustrative words we’ve read in a press release for some time, “salute the cinematic story.” Asking price is a steep $150, but fashion doesn’t run cheap – besides, how else are you going to stand out in a dark room filled with bespectacled people all facing the same direction?

NTT DoCoMo hands-free videophone prototype replaces that off-center webcam stare with your digital doppelganger (video)

In a sort of reverse-Project Glass, one of DoCoMo’s latest prototypes flips its cameras back at the wearer. This hands-free videophone headset ties together seven separate cameras, each recording 720p video from wide-angle lenses. Aside from the single camera pointing behind the user (and beaming the background image), the rest of them point at the users’ face, recording different quadrants. These are then composited together, creating a three-dimensional avatar of the user that’s then broadcasted to the other caller. The model then nods, blinks, and moves – all based on the camera footage – all in real-time.

In its current guise, the bottom half of the face is still composed from high resolution stills captured beforehand, but the program is able to animate the mouth based on the words and tones that the built-in mic picks up. NTT DoCoMo had some lighter, slight less clunky, future prototypes on show, and suggested that the headset could have medical applications, embedding further sensors that could gauge blood pressure, pulse and temperature and possibly broadcast this data during a call to your future physician. Work is currently underway to utilize smaller, higher quality sensors. We take a closer look at CEATEC after the break. %Gallery-167174%

Strobe lighting goggles shown to improve short-term memory, all-night ravers feel validated

Those goggles you see above aren’t for stylish looks while playing dodgeball – they’re the keys to a potentially important discovery about short-term memory. Duke University’s Institute for Brain Sciences found that subjects playing catch with goggles simulating strobe lights were noticeably better at memorizing information during tests, even a full day after playtime was over. It’s not hard to see why: with a limited amount of time to see that incoming ball, participants had to more vividly remember brief scenes to stay on top of the game. We don’t yet know if there’s any kind of long-term boost, so don’t get your hopes up that strobe lights are the shortcuts to permanent photographic memory. Still, the findings suggest that frequent nightclubbers might be on to something… or, at least, have a better idea of where they left their keys the morning after.

Sony patent filing for glasses would share data face to face, carry more than a hint of Project Glass

Google might not realize it, but Project Glass isn’t alone in the patent race these days. Sony has quietly applied for a patent on a familiar-looking smart glasses system whose advantage over Mountain View would be an emphasis on things in twos. Eyepieces are the most obvious, but Sony is also keen on sharing data between two friends: transmitters on a pair of glasses would send personal info through a likely very uncomfortable glance at someone else with the same eyewear. If your friends are more than a little weirded out from sharing by staring, the proposed glasses could still pick up information from visual tags on posters, products and virtually anything else. There’s even the obligatory connection to a watch for sharing data with the rest of the world. Whether or not the patent leads to Sony head-mounted technology more advanced than a personal 3D TV is still up in the air, especially with Google currently hogging the spotlight… not that existing, more conservative designs have ever stopped Sony from rolling out wild concepts before.

Tesco's prototype Glass app lets you order milk by looking at the barcode

While supermarkets have gone mobile to help you order bread and milk while on the go, wearable tech has remained largely unexplored. Not wanting to be left in the chilled section, Tesco gave its R&D boffins Google Glass and tasked them with helping customers order their groceries while barely lifting a finger. The result was a new prototype Glass app that lets the wearer scan a barcode to quickly add products to their virtual basket or find out their nutritional information. Tesco admits that it would struggle with the rigors of a weekly shop, but says the app perfect for “micro interactions” – i.e. that time when you realise you’ve just used the last piece of toilet roll.

Edinburgh becomes the first UK airport to openly trial Google Glass

Google Glass is still a rare sight in the UK, but it’s proving popular amongst brands and businesses, especially when customer service is involved. Virgin Atlantic previously used the headset to welcome passengers to Heathrow, but only now is it making it’s airport debut in Scotland. Edinburgh Airport today announced plans to equip its customer service teams with Google’s smart eyewear, becoming the first UK airport (not airline) to use it on the front line. Staff will be fed real-time flight information, language translations and information about the local area, allowing them to provide assistance to travellers throughout the airport and not from behind a check-in desk. The airport says it will test Glass until December, meaning you might hear the phrase “OK Glass” if you find yourself, like many recent Ryder Cup golfers, passing through Scotland’s busiest terminal in the coming months.

Google strikes smart contact lens deal to track diabetes and fix farsightedness

With Glass and Android Wear, Google has already invested a lot of time and resources into developing the next-generation of wearables, but it’s another of its eye-focused projects that has today received its first major boost. The search giant’s secret Google[x] team has confirmed that it’s licensed its smart eyewear to healthcare specialist Novartis, which will develop the technology into a product that can improve eye care and help manage diseases and conditions.
