Sony invented a display module to make your eyewear a wearable device
Sony announced the development of a display module that transforms your eyewear into a wearable device.
They also revealed that they will show the display module and its concept model - SmartEyeglass Attach! - at the 2015 International CES that will be held in Las Vegas in the U.S. beginning Junuary 6.
By attaching the display module to your eyewear such as glasses, goggles, and sunglasses, and putting them on, you will get a sub-window displayed in front of you without blocking your site.
The display module features Sony's original tiny 0.23-inch OEL display (640x400) that provides a 1000:1 contrast ratio. They also downsized a control board including several sensors, processors and a wireless communication function as powerful as those in smartphones, according to the company, and created a sophisticated device that weighs only 40g.
Sony is planning to begin commercial production of the module as well as providing the software kit to partner companies sometime in 2015.
