Intel to foray into smart-glasses with Vault

They also don't come with a camera that can record people without their knowledge, or with numerous other features that put people off about the Google Glass and similar devices. Intel's new smart glasses called Vaunt have none of the obvious features associated with the wearables, however, and it looks downright normal. Intel has designed a new pair of AR glasses.

A very low-powered laser (VCSEL) shines a red monochrome image at around 400 x 150 pixels onto a holographic reflector on the right lens of the glasses.

The lasers in the prototype now project simple data like missed calls and other assorted notifications. From the outside, Vaunt looks just like a normal pair of prescription glasses that can be worn comfortably all day.

"The glasses don't have cameras, or a lot of processing ability, or the ability to display data in any color besides red", noted Hanich.

Intel have opened the door on their first smart glass venture. The built-in camera, glowing LCD screen, floating screen lens, microphone and design creeped many people out. This could mean the behavioural A.I. would suggest notifications based on certain inputs and stimuli, rather than any intrinsic user interaction.

Moreover, the Vaunt smart glasses technology will comprise Bluetooth for connecting smartphone such as iPhone and Android phones accompanied with an accelerometer, compass as well as application processor compressed into the device. The likely sales channel is the the optician/prescription glasses stores, as they already offer the necessary services to get Intel's Vaunt fitted for your vision. They are pretty much the polar opposite of Google Glass and the "glasshole" effect. "The image is then reflected into the back of your eyeball, directly onto the retina".

The company is also reportedly considering adding a microphone and making Vaunt compatible with Amazon's virtual assistant Alexa for voice control. In both ways this could be an interesting development in the augmented reality space. They are rolling out a program now to get developers test units, which could fix numerous hurdles Vaunt will have to overcome to be a marketable product.

NOT CONTENT WITH CHIPS Intel has knocked up a pair of smart glasses that actually look like something you'd wear as opposed to full-on nerd goggles. Artificial intelligence will also play a role in how you interact with the glasses, and assist with displaying contextual information. "We can replace the eye care providers and people will buy them like they buy their glasses today".
