Sony Smart Glasses Wearable Tech

Sony previously announced the development of an attachable Single-Lens Display Module that can turn eyewear of varying designs into smart devices.

With this module, Sony has achieved a compactness of size and a lightness of weight that make it possible to attach the module to a piece of eyewear. It accomplished this by equipping the device with a High-Resolution Color OLED Microdisplay, a Micro-Optical Unit that brings out the full potential of the display's high image quality, and a miniaturized control board with arithmetic processing capabilities on par with smartphones that was made possible by high-density packaging technology.
It is looking to provide the product to a wide variety of potential customers, from eyewear makers whose pieces are tailored for specific uses such as sports or entertainment, to electronics manufacturers who are considering pairing their products with wearable devices, to companies that provide business solutions utilizing wearable devices. By making the product available to such a wide range of outlets, Sony will promote the adoption of wearable devices in new areas, thereby contributing to the further development of the market. Sony will also provide software development kits (SDK) to partnering organizations for this Single-Lens Display Module boasting rich arithmetic processing capabilities, thereby embarking on a new commercial solutions business that will broaden the world of wearable devices.

Sony unveiled this display module for the first time in public at its booth at the "2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES)" held in Las Vegas, US from Tuesday, January 6th to Friday, January 9th, 2015.  Exhibited in the form of a concept model called "SmartEyeglass Attach!," which proposes one potential use for the module and is meant to be attached to sports eyewear pieces.

Examples of Wearable Devices That Could Potentially Be Made Possible With This Module

Sony is preparing a software development kit (SDK) for this display module in order to facilitate application development. It is thereby moving forward with a glasses-style smart device solutions business that could see the module being adapted to a wide variety of uses, given its high processing power. With the SDK, developers will be able to create dedicated apps tailored to specific uses. They can choose either to load an app onto the module itself, thereby enabling the device to be used independently of any other hardware, or to load an app onto a smartphone, thereby allowing the device to be used in tandem with a smartphone over a wireless connection. Sony therefore aims to promote development of novel uses for glasses-style smart devices that capitalize on the power of the module's arithmetic unit and Wi-Fi functionality, such as with applications that access data in the cloud or that link with infrastructure systems. Along with the SDK, Sony will also release the display module's communication specifications, enabling developers to wirelessly pair it with a wide range of other devices aside from smartphones. This will make possible a whole new level of potential ways to use the module that could provide users with even greater convenience.

Many situations spring to mind in which hands-free display of information would be extremely beneficial. For example, when cycling, playing a round of golf, or engaging in some other outdoor sport, attaching this module to a pair of sports sunglasses and pairing it with a smartphone would enable you to access valuable information such as course maps or distance readings, even when your hands are tied. Using the module for coaching purposes, in concert with an application for sports use, could prove extremely effective as well. Alternatively, the module could be paired directly with an action camera capable of remote display on a smartphone, enabling you to check the angle of view and the captured image from a distance through your eyewear. This would give birth to a completely new style of shooting images and would potentially imbue the camera itself with higher added value. As a final example, Sony has high expectations for the module's applications in a work setting, such as when linked to a factory's internal infrastructure system. Instructions could be given remotely and hands-free, allowing workers to continue their work uninterrupted.
