Take a look at the demo video below:
Arguing that “smartphones could be a thing of the past” with “every smartphone function built into what you wear,” the video shows the glasses in action.
The glasses offer a 0.13 inch Micro LED screen, which is projected as a much larger image thanks to the diffusion of the lenses. You can view notifications like incoming messages and phone calls, and perhaps more usefully, you can also use the specs on the go as you try to point your wat to a destination. A menu in front of your eyes is even translated in real time, superimposed on the paper in your hands. The built-in 5-megapixel cameras also allow photos to be taken via gesture controls.
