Kopin makes advanced night vision goggles and thermal weapon sights for the U.S. Army, but they’ll soon be releasing a wearable Windows/smartphone eye display!
Imagine your smartphone feeding information to a virtual 15-inch Microsoft Windows PC display that sits in front of one eye, just beneath your line of sight. You speak commands using hands-free speech recognition to control both wireless access to the internet and your phone. (An adjustable speaker sits by your right ear, and there’s a snap-on wireless webcam for video conferencing.)
The device can also remotely wake your Windows PC using a Bluetooth, WiFi, or cellular link, and then offer hands-free access to PC applications. (When work is done, the PC may be placed in hibernation with a single spoken command.)
It’s expected to retail near $2,500 – running Windows CE with an 8-hour battery – and could challenge the iPhone.
