Vaunt smart glasses from Intel - multifunctional gadget with a standard look
Intel presented a prototype of Vaunt smart glasses. Their uniqueness is in the side frame with a built-in laser, which makes it invisible for the people around. In addition, other smart glasses often have a large additional unit with electronics and batteries, so it’s hard to wear them constantly.
Intel's new glasses don’t have any of these inconveniences. They barely differ from ordinary glasses, since they have a standard look. To display data on the lenses, developers used a projector based on a Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser.
It creates a projection of the image directly onto the retina through the reflector. But only one lens has the projector, so only one eye sees the data. The projector directs the image in a way for a person to see it in the lower right corner.
Smart glasses can be synchronized with a smartphone via Bluetooth. This function is especially useful when using the navigator: a person does not have to constantly look at their phone, because the glasses show them when and where to turn.
In terms of battery, company specialists assure that the latest version can work for almost 18 hours without charging.
