Washington, January 5: San Francisco–based Osterhout Design Group (ODG), which develops heavy–duty smart glasses for the military, is set to roll out a consumer–friendly version this year, Forbes reported. For less than $1,000, the augmented reality glasses can display high–definition video, record video and lay visuals over the real world.
ODG’s glasses have a Qualcomm Spdragon 805 processor, Wi–Fi, Bluetooth, a global vigation satellite system and sensors for figuring out where you are looking. These can track your head movement so you can be placed into a 3D picture or video feed like you would with a pair of virtual reality goggles, the report added. The operating system that ODG uses is a modified version of Android. Battery life can range from an hour or two to nearly all day on a single charge.
ODG will soon release its own developer kit for third–party players to start building applications for the glasses. (IANS)
