New smart eyewear was designed to look ordinary.
During the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, Smart Optics unveiled a smart eyewear prototype that Sherri L. Smith of tech review website Tom’s Guide lauds as a preferred alternative to Google Glass, at least cosmetically. She writes:
“Instead of the overt, obnoxious presence of Google Glass, Smart Optics provides an incognito solution that doesn't out the wearer as a potential provocateur. Zeiss' optical solution is integrated into a curved lens -- the first of its kind. The curvature means that the system can be used on prescription lenses that can be fitted into a regular pair of eyeglass frames. It's a much welcome change from the chunky overlay that was dorky at best.”
