Intel Reveals Normal-Looking Smart Glasses
5 February, 2018

Intel has presented an impressively normal-looking smart glasses that you might want to wear. They have plastic frames and weigh under 50 grams, which is comparable to regular eyeglasses. The electronics are said to be crammed into the stems. The main element here is a low-powered, class one laser that shines a red, monochrome 400 x 150 pixel image into your eye. It is worth noting that the glasses feature no camera,  so no”big brother” this time. 

Vaunt is mostly about getting simple heads-up notifications. Intel describes its glasses as a more stealthy smartwatch, which allows you to check notifications while doing other activities. For example, you can see a person’s birthday and other personal info while chatting with him/her on the phone. The device is also useful in the kitchen — you can search for recipes or prepare a shopping list.

Don’t worry about a laser beamed into your eyeball — “it is so low-power that it’s at the very bottom end of a class one laser,” said Intel New Devices Group’s Mark Eastwood. It is worth noting that the display isn’t even visible unless you look at it. 

They come with Bluetooth to link with your smartphone, of course, a processor for applications, a compass, accelerometer, and other features. Future models may be updated with a microphone for voice assistants.

Intel designed Vaunt to have “no social cost,” when it comes to doing something distracting during a conversation. Users can control it using head nods or other gestures.

Intel also stated that Vaunt will be a wide open platform, so a lot of apps can join the party. Applications will run from a mobile device in most cases, but some apps might be powered by the Vaunt.

You can find a detailed look at the newest device with comments from Intel here. What do you think about the concept of these stealthy glasses?
