We’ve all been waiting for Google Glass to become a reality. Now Vuzix has stolen a bit of their thunder with their Smart Glasses M100. Vuzix displayed and demoed the eyepiece today at CES Unveiled.
The glasses run Android Ice Cream Sandwich and connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Using augmented reality, your eye sees everything that it would see on a 4.3 inch smartphone display placed about 14 inches away from you. It works as a peripheral in concert with your smartphone, not as an independent device.
The SDK is available now in gold and silver versions. The $1,000 silver SDK gets you the hardware, software and so on by the early to mid second quarter. The $7,500 gold SDK gets early copies, engineering units, multiple pieces of hardware and all the software as well as the developer portal at Vuzix.
