GlassUp, eyeglass display for incoming emails, texts, etc
The idea is simple but hard to do, apparently: GlassUp’s eyeglasses use Bluetooth to link with your mobile phone, and a phone-based app for a read-only display incoming text on the eyeglass lenses: emails, messages, tweets, etc. That’s different from Google Glass which makes you look up and away. But GlassUp has a way to go, says The Verge’s Ellis Hamburger, who tried out a prototype at CES. It projects “tiny green lettering” that “was difficult, if not impossible to read…skewed and nearly illegible,” he writes. Due in summer 2014, priced at $399.
