Dragon Creative has taken to Kickstarter to raise the $100,000 AUD it requires to take’s new smart glass and ecosystem into production. MAD Glass as the system has been called is reminiscent of Google’s Glass eyewear system which was put on hold for consumers and is now being developed for enterprise applications.
The MAD Glass is a new wearable augmented reality device that allows you to use GPS navigation systems, translation applications and even entertainment and games as you go about your daily life.
Watch the video below to learn more about this new wearable device which is available to back via the Kickstarter website for super early bird backers from just $839.
Its developers Dragon Creative explain a little more about what you can expect:
– Instant Translation – Ever walk around a foreign country and have no idea what is going on? MAD Glass is going to fix that for you. There is an auto-translate application that translate everything the glass see into the language of your choice. You’ll never want to travel without your MAD Glass.
– Social – MAD Glass allows users to make phone calls, text, send multimedia to contacts, access personal data assistant (PDA) and play any media. Seeing as this is the main reason people are on their smart phones all the time, by replacing that phone with MAD Glass, a lot more time will be spent looking up.
– Entertainment & Games – Imagine playing your favorite game not having to look down at the screen, or using AR+ to play games where your surrounding real world interacts with you. Suddenly, the game becomes more interactive than idle. The world is enriched. MAD Glass takes gaming to a whole new, more exciting and entertaining level. As a player, you truly feel in game.
– GPS Navigation – The GPS on MAD Glass will ensure you never get lost. With the map and directions right in front of you, you will no longer miss a turn. A completely hands-free map creates a safer alternative than a smartphone in situations where having your hand free is quite important. Just envision having a little map in the corner of your eye directing you as you bike, drive, walk, run, kayak, anything!
