Google Glass isn’t available yet, so there is time for some competitors to develop similar products at the same time. Baidu, China’s biggest search engine, is working on its own wearable technology. The prototype is called Baidu Eye.
Baidu Eye will have an open platform for developers, just like Google Glass. It also has an LCD display, bone sensing and image recognition through voice. The technology is very similar to what Google Glass offers. I wonder what Google thinks about this.
With Baidu Eye you can search the web, make calls and send pictures. It apparently does everything Google Glass does. The company is said to be working with Qualcomm to ensure that Eye offers 12 hours of battery life. Both Baidu and Qualcomm are keeping quiet for now with no comment.
