Ray-Ban style video recording Prototype Glasses revealed
May 25, 2012: The technological advancements have made it really easy to record videos and now with the pair of techno glasses by Vergence Labs, the video recording has become astoundingly easier than the recordings made via cameras or mobile phones and other gadgets. Although these prototype glasses look ordinary, they have the ability to record the first-person audio and video.
On top of this, these techno glasses enable the users to share the videos on various social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Moreover, the glasses are likely to include a ‘magic’ button for turning them into sunglasses.
The glass by Vergence Labs is a stylish product. As per the makers of the glass, the techno glass is styled after Clark Kent. Also, the glass is considered as a stealthy product by the makers mainly because this video recording device looks like a very ordinary glass. In addition to this, the frame styles of the glasses will be modelled after Clark Kent, Buddy Holly and James Dean. On the other hand, the much-hyped Google’s Project Glass goggles sculpted by CEO Larry Page are bulky and dull in looks.
According to the sources, the prototype glasses were developed using a 3D printer. Currently, the maker of the techno glasses is searching for funding for their product that is composed of a lens and recording equipment into the arms. “Recording video or taking pictures is clunky. You have to pull out your smart phone or your video camera, and hold it up,” said Vergence. Vergence also added, “What if you could just touch a button on your eyewear and start recording from the actual perspective of your eyes instead? Sure, there are products you can strap on your head, but what if the ability was inside a regular pair of stylish & trendy looking hipster glasses? That would be cool!”
Company expects the glasses to be a hit over Facebook and Youtube as the users will be able to ‘capture the moment’ and share it as videos exhibiting their opinion or point of view on these social media platforms. “We are working with-in an accelerated startup environment to reinvent the human-computer experience as stylish computing enabled eyewear,” the company said.
Apart from this, other tech firms such as Epson are also entering into this field with their glasses that boast Android operating system (OS). Thus, the tech firms are really set to revolutionise the way we see things around us.
