Unique hologram optics in lightweight eyewear
SmartEyeglass includes unique holographic waveguide technology, which enables super thin augmented reality lenses with high transparency and excellent brightness.
Lightweight & comfortable
At only 77g (without the controller), SmartEyeglass is well-balanced and comfortable to wear.
High transparency display
Binocular display with 1,000 cd/m2 brightness for high readability. 3 mm thin lenses with 85% transmittance for great transparency. Depth of overlaid information can be dynamically adjusted.
Camera and sensors
Camera with 3 MP CMOS image sensor. Accelerometer, gyro, electronic compass, and brightness sensor are also included.
SmartEyeglass communicates with a smartphone over Bluetooth and WLAN （WLAN is automatically used in the camera mode). SmartEyeglass apps run as normal Android apps on the smartphone.
Includes battery, speaker, microphone and touch sensor for navigation.
Superimpose text, symbols and images
SmartEyeglass is lightweight, binocular eyewear that enables true augmented reality experiences. Text, symbols and images are superimposed onto your natural field of view.
Featuring unique hologram optics technology
SmartEyeglass is equipped with a thin, lightweight display module designed specifically for transparent lens glasses. The module is made up of two parts: the optical engine, which projects images and text using micro display (µDisplay) technology, and a holographic waveguide, an extremely thin transparent plate of glass measuring just 1mm.
The waveguide is a unique Sony technology that takes the light created in the optical engine and projects a virtual image through the holographic optical elements to the eyes of the wearer. Together with the protective plating, this technology enables more than 85% outside light transmittance, with lenses that are only 3mm thin in total.
A new world of hands-free use cases
Developers can combine the SmartEyeglass sensors and camera with the powerful features of the smartphone to create unique hands-free use cases. Whether you’re watching a live game, concert, touring a new city or carrying out a job, SmartEyeglass helps you stay focussed and involved, whilst supporting and empowering you with extra data, help and information.
Please note that these are possible use cases, which will require dedicated applications and services.
