Vuzix reveals M100 smartglasses

Vuzix has been on the floor at CES with its M100 smartglasses technology, quite literally putting the specs into specs

 

Taking your smartphone out of your pocket and looking at the screen... it's a bit of a chore right? Wouldn't it be much easier if you could always see what was going on in your social life right in the corner of your eye? Well, Vuzix is hoping to exploit this with its M100 smart glasses, which have been on display over at CES.

Designed to either fit around your head or on your ear, the M100’s inform you of texts and emails while also letting you view photos and play games.

It does this by running Android 4.0.1 with a 720p camera, 4GB of onboard memory, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth packed into the device. Impressive ‘specs’ for something you will wear on your head.

If you have an iOS or Android smartphone, like the iPhone 5 or Nexus 4, then you'll be able to connect that to your smart glasses through an app and have access to many of the phone's functions.

Vuzix are hardly the first entrant into the smart glasses market. If you remember at Google I/O last year the company demoed their Smart Glass technology by having skydivers record their descent on a head mounted camera.

According to Vuzix they are still working out all the features for the M100, but hope to have it available to buy sometime in the summer, with a slightly lofty price tag of $500. But if you’re itching to try out the future of eye-wear sooner, kits will be available for developers hopefully around the end of Q1 2013.
