Sony's SmartEyeglass is a head-turning Google Glass alternative

•, By Chris Wood

Sony today announced its own heads-up-display-packing wearable, known as SmartEyeglass. The headset, which is designed to pair with Android smartphones, offers a built-in camera and several sensors.

Much like Google Now-powered Android Wear smartwatches, Sony's new head-mounted wearable is designed to provide the user with context-aware information, right when they need it. The device makes use of a CMOS image sensor, coupled with an accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor and a microphone.

As you might expect from a head-mounted wearable, there's also a camera on board (3 megapixels). SmartEyeglass is technically compatible with smartphones and tablets running Android 4.1+, but you'll need to be running the more recent 4.3 release onwards to make full use of the wearable's camera.
