Monday in CE: Intel's Smart Glasses Venture is Light Years Ahead of Competition
People have been talking about the magical pair of smart glasses since they have been talking about flying cars. And while we aren't any closer to defying gravity, we are getting closer to the personal assistant small enough to fit right on your face.
Intel is reportedly wrapping up internal development on a pair of smart glasses, codenamed Vaunt, that will be ready for developer use sometime this year. Vaunt is exactly what everyone wants when they think about smart glasses. They are otherwise safe, they aren't a glorified smartphone, and they are certainly don't make you look like a jerk.
The Verge exclusively reported on Intel's newest product asking 'Why of all companies is Intel getting ahead of this?' and their response is simply because we can. The interview details that the glasses are a stark contrast to anything that has ever been on the market. Of course, smart glasses never hit full mainstream acceptance, especially with how short the Google Glass fell after all the hype it got (noting that they are ready for a second go at the tech.)
