Oh, hey, it’s Jessica Dolcourt from CNET, and she was kind enough to let me photograph her wearing Optinvent's ORA-S smartglasses. These specs are packed with everything a nerd might need for a completely stand-alone augmented-reality experience. Android is built right in, along with a CPU, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, ambient light sensor, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microphone, and camera. It’s unclear what kind of software and apps will drive the hardware, but Optinvent spins a supercool vision here.
Extra special feature: Optinvent claims a viewing area of 33 pixels per degree of vision across a 25-degree diagonal field of view. (Sorry, the rep wouldn’t talk in terms of a traditional pixel grid.) Also nifty: There are two viewing modes—one directly in your field of vision, and the other at the bottom of your POV.
