- Camera giant takes on Google and Apple with ‘wearable computer’
- Prototype links to smartphones using Bluetooth
- Lenses can ‘brighten up’ view of world
- Can also display computer information from a phone direct in the lens
Olympus is to release a pair of ‘techno-glasses’ that put a computer display directly in front of your eyes – and can also make the world itself look cheerier by turning up the brightness.
The MEG4.0 glasses work with a see-through display called a ‘pupil division optical system’, and displays information such as emails from a smartphone linked to the glasses via Bluetooth.
Olympus is the latest tech giant to throw its weight behind ‘techno-glasses’ – both Apple and Google are now investigating the technology.
