Other features include wireless 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth connectivity as well as a separate controller with touchpad for menu navigation and camera control. Sony explains a little more:
“Imagine that you walk into an airport and instantly get directions to your check-in desk, or that you get scores and names of players displayed while watching a football game in real life. These are just some of the potential use cases of the new SmartEyeglass concept from Sony
The SmartEyeglass concept from Sony aims to bring notifications and information instantly, and present it right in front of your eyes. For example, while you’re guided to your gate at the airport like in the demo video above, you could read text messages, get notified of a missed phone call, or snap a photo of something interesting you come across.”
