Dieter Bohn at The Verge got an exclusive look at Intel’s smart glasses project:
The most important parts of Intel’s new Vaunt smart glasses are the pieces that were left out.
There is no camera to creep people out, no button to push, no gesture area to swipe, no glowing LCD screen, no weird arm floating in front of the lens, no speaker, and no microphone (for now).
From the outside, the Vaunt glasses look just like eyeglasses. When you’re wearing them, you see a stream of information on what looks like a screen — but it’s actually being projected onto your retina.
I think friend of the show Steve Troughton-Smith summed it up well:
Intel have created a Pebble for your face; it will be fascinating to see what the 'Apple Watch' is in this analogy — a full iOS-powered device that can avail of all the technologies developers need to make amazing things. AR is going to be huge
