Samsung is working on high-tech sports glasses similar to Google Glass, according to new leak
Perhaps everyone who has ever seen or heard about the capabilities of the Google Glass is fascinated by the rapid improvement in computing technologies. The development of the high-tech wearable devices is progressing faster than we can imagine. The Google Glass is still a device undergoing work and available only for a limited number of developers. Google has shared its plans to release the Glass in 2014. The latest rumors on the mobile arena suggest that the high-tech wearable device might not be alone. At least two more companies are working on similar devices to the Glass.
Sources close to Microsoft have revealed recently that the company is testing Glass-like prototypes. The Korean manufacturer Samsung is also working on high-tech sports glasses according to leak from the Korean Patent Office. The company has registered a wearable device described as sports glasses with integrated earphones and event display and camera. Users of the device will be able to listen to music and take calls among other options. The Samsung’s sports glasses will be compatible to pair up with smartphones. The design of the sketched unit reminds a lot to regular sports glasses. We can see from the picture that there are wires coming from each earpiece. The guessing includes that wires are either for a headphone jack or USB plug for the device. The new wearable device has not obtained a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office yet.
There is no guarantee that the concept for Samsung Galaxy Glasses will ever be realized in actual device or that it will look similar to the sketches. The idea of more high-tech eyewear from different companies is truly exciting. We will share with you as soon as we know more.
The wearable devices are the newest hot trend in the mobile world. The “invasion” of new models smartwatches is just the beginning. The companies are working hard to develop innovative models with breakthrough technologies integrated in them.
