When it comes to wearable technology such as smart glasses, we have yet arrived at a situation where there is a truly sentient pair, one which is also capable of letting the blind “see” like the technology showcased in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Well, we will simply have to settle for something like the Olympus EyeTrek INSIGHT EI-10 smart glasses at the moment, where this compact and lightweight tool has been specially optimized to see action in business applications.
With Olympus having a rich and long history when it comes to developing smart glasses technology, the EyeTrek INSIGHT EI-10 is now available in the US. Sporting a patented optical system within the EyeTrek INSIGHT EI-10 itself, users are able to check out its display without actually blocking one’s eyesight. This makes it a whole lot easier to access information as and when required, without the need to pause for a moment and have the current activity interrupted.
Despite being extremely lightweight, the EI-10 has managed to incorporate not only wireless LAN connectivity but also Bluetooth technology in order to have it hooked up to a network or to other kinds of peripheral devices. The EI-10 also boasts of a long battery life while it has hot swap capabilities that enables it to be used for extended periods of time even in the most demanding of business settings. There is also an attachment mechanism that enables it to be mounted onto safety glasses or prescription glasses in a jiffy. The embedded sensors also allow for easy navigation of the user interface as well as applications, where among them include photo and video capture and playback, QR code reader, and utility functions for custom developed applications.
The EyeTrek INSIGHT EI-10 is available for purchase already at $1,499.99 apiece for those who are interested.
