After Google Glass now it’s Sony turn and the brand it’s developping a new OLED microdisplay that can ostensibly be used for smart eyewear.
This technology will be placed over existing eyewear, like Google Glass, with 640×400 resolution from a little 0.23-inch color OLED screen. Smaller pixel size and advancements in light shielding technology give the screen capabilities of displaying better colors – deeper blacks and a more vibrant gamut of colors.
The screen is very light and Sony thinks that could be a very good reason to fit for existing eyewear. The brand is preparing a software development kit that will be released very soon.
This kit will have a compass, an accelerometer, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi connectivity, and a touch sensor – all powered by an ARMv7 processor. This new technology is scheduled to be made public at the CES 2015 in Las Vegas.
