Sony SmartEyeglass to enter tech eyewear market

Almost everybody who’s capable of producing tech eyewear is coming after Google Glass in a big way, and Japanese consumer electronics outfit Sony isn’t one to get left behind. It’s releasing the Sony SmartEyeglass (we guess people are running out of novel names for tech eyewear) to compete in this segment, although it doesn’t have software of its own as of now and is relying on third party developers to work with their SDK.

ODG R-7 smart glasses carries its own Android inside

Smart eyewear, novel as they still may be, is already catching on with some device OEMs. But almost all of them have one thing in common: they all still need a smartphone to work whether for connecting to the Internet and data like Google Glass, or providing the heart of the device itself like Samsung Gear VR. The Osterhout Design Group's ODG R-7 is notably different. It has its own Android-based OS running inside of it, freeing it from the shackles of a smartphone.

Google Glass, Moto 360 now available via Play Store

This week, to add to all the hysteria at IFA 2014, Google has updated its device store on the Google Play displays with two new devices – that is the Google Glass Explorer Edition and the Moto 360. It’s worth mentioning that Glass was already made available in the UK, but now it’s available in the US as well – at least, conveniently through the Google Play Store. Also, Motorola’s new roundface thingamajig has also been made available.

ORA-1 is a potential Google Glass killer, runs on Android

As wearable technologies continue to find their time more and more in the spotlight, outfits like Optinvent find more and more reasons to be bullish about their products. This specific thingamabob is the ORA-1 wearable “smart glass” gadget, done in the tradition of what Google started with Google Glass – only, this one is more scalable as it runs mostly on Android OS.

Pandora brings music streaming service to Google Glass

If you’re wearing your Google Glass and want to bust out a dance move to show how cool you are, you can now have a perfect partner app for that, instead of just relying on the music in your head. Pandora has now arrived for Google Glass as a result of the music streaming service’s hack-a-thon this spring, which Google was more than happy to adapt to their precious wearable.

Navdy HUD projects virtual images onto car’s windshield

Several sci-fi movies from the past (and recent) years have scenes showing holograms being projected on a car’s dashboard or windshield. But with the advances in technology, sooner or later, that kind of device would not be fiction anymore, but a common reality for consumers. Navdy’s aftermarket HUD is bringing it one step closer, as the device acts as a Google Glass for your car.

New app lets Android Wear control your Tesla Model S

Smartwatches seem to be the latest cool tech trend as you can just speak into your device and you can make things happen, just like in the movies a few years ago. Now a new app will make them even cooler as it can make a car do basic commands, that is if you have a smartwatch that runs on Android Wear and if you’re one of the privileged owners of a Tesla Model S.

Lenovo announces Google Glass rival, push for collaboration

The main gadget highlight of Lenovo’s NBD launch (more on this below) was the Lenovo C1, a wearable camera-based eyewear device notably similar to Google Glass. This new wearable device will ostensibly be built under Lenovo’s NBD platform – which is, at its most basic – a call for collaboration between companies to make more internet-driven, internet-powered, and internet-capable household devices.
