If you are in the market for a new piece of tech this year, then it does look like you will have a few options. Android Wear is consistently growing with a large number of options becoming available. Android Auto is on its way to user’s cars, slowly, but surely. Virtual reality seems to be a big tech option for this year with more and more companies announcing their entrance to the market. Then, of course, there is glassables. The wearables for your face. Although, Google are largely considered to be the author of the technology with their Google Glass, the market looks to be opening up in the near future with offerings coming from the likes of Toshiba and Sony.
That said, Toshiba’s offering seems to lack the style factor that Glass has mastered a lot better. However, with Sony, things seem to be a bit different. Sony seems intent on bringing their option to market and seem to know exactly what market they are aiming towards with the business, enterprise and sector being a clear favorite in Sony’s mind.
Well, if you have been monitoring the movements of Sony’s SmartEyeGlass and were hoping to pick one up in the near future then it looks, you can from this point on. The Sony SmartEyeGlass Developer Edition SED-E1 has now officially gone on sale in as many as ten countries. It is worth pointing out that of those ten countries, six are specifically reserved for business customers (Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden). However, if you live in the UK, Germany, Japan or the U.S. then Sony SmartEyeGlass is now available to buy. In terms of pricing, it is not a cheap option, although is much cheaper than Glass was. If you are in the UK, then you are looking at a price of £620. If you are based in the U.S. then the price comes in at $820. Those in Germany who are interested can pick up SmartEyeGlass for â‚¬800. Shipping is currently listed as April 2015. Those interested, will also want to think about downloading the companion android app that is already available on the Play Store.
