Sony’s attachable smart eyewear module better than Google Glass?

Sony’s “SmartEyeglass Attach!” debuted at CES 2015 in Las Vegas just a few weeks back, the second eyewear technology that Sony has outed to public in recent months. Nobody can deny that it was Google Glass that pioneered this type of wearable smart technology – but as Google Glass is reconsidering its marketing strategy, Sony might have a prime contender in the SmartEyeglass Attach! to take its place.

Last chance to buy Google Glass from Google

An era, short as it was, is coming to a close. At the end of the day, Google Glass will be no more. At least the Google Glass that is being offered on Google Play Store. It also marks the formal end of Google Glass' Explorer program, which means that the smart eyepiece as we know it is, for all intents ans purposes, practically dead. Of course, Google officially isn't calling it quits on the idea and simply calls this a "graduation" of the device.

Google Glass under new management: Tony Fadell, CEO of Nest

Google Glass is flying to a new nest - that nest being Tony Fadell, co-founder and CEO of Google-owned smart thermostat group Nest. Google Glass jumped out of the experimental Google X division Thursday and on to Fadell’s list of responsibilities. Almost exactly a year ago, Google bought out Nest for $3.2 billion. Maybe Fadell can use his management skills to boost something new and make a comeback with Glass.

Sony SmartEyeglass Attach: hands-on with an adaptable eyepiece

Google Glass and a whole bunch of other attempts at smart glasses, despite differences in implementation and concept, have one thing in common. They all require you to accept the vision of their designers, instead of being able to show off your own personal flair. Not so with Sony's second iteration of its SmartEyeglass device, called the SmartEyeglass Attach!. As the name implies, it was designed to attach to any kind of eyewear, glasses, goggles, or whatnot, instead of arriving welded unto someone else glasses.

We're just into the second day of the new year so the memories of the previous one are still quite fresh in our mind.

We also get to polish up our crystal balls as we try to discern movements and trends to cook up some hypotheses as to what will be coming our way this year, especially with CES 2015 just around the corner.

New patent filing shows a slimmed-down Google Glass

Although it's almost 3 years since Google Glass was announced (and then sold to "explorers" a year later), it's still too early to say whether it's already a failure or that it will eventually catch on. But a new patent filing from Google shows that they aim to improve the first version, and maybe, just maybe, this will pave the way for more interest in the wearable tech.
