It seems that everyone in tech has been busy working on wearable computing and augmented reality glasses.
Now Olympus is pulling the curtains back on its own wearable computer glasses. In a news release, Olympus announced the “MEG 4.0 ultracompact wearable display prototype,” which it said “can be used in everyday life.” The company said that the MEG 4.0 “display does not obstruct the view of the outside world” and that the glasses only weighed 30 grams, including the battery.
The Meg 4.0 requires a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone, which is then used to share information back to the Olympus display. Pricing and a release date were not discussed in the release.
