SmartEyeglass APX Labs demoSony continues to work on SmartEyeglass and recently presented the Google Glass-like eyewear at CES at the start of the year. Sony took the opportunity to show off some of the real world business applications that can be used with the SmartEyeglass, in a collaboration with APX Labs.

The video below illustrates this best and includes examples of warehouse logistics, surveillance of machines within an industry or easily retrieving patient information in a hospital. APX Labs builds real-time hands-free solutions for businesses and its Skylight enterprise smart glasses platform integrates with several SAP products including HANA and Work Manager.

    Function is quite good though…but when look in the ui from the glass….green words…Not that ui friendly =,=
    looking forward of the ui design in future…

  • Niels d. G.

    Looks silly

  • Jaywalker

    People people what is wrong with you? From December there are news and photos with the new Z4 and here not a word about it. Is this still a blog for Xperias right? Here is a link among many others. And btw, those curved edges aren’t practical at all, a curved edge is very hard to deal with. But hey, that’s Sony.

    Why not use the resource to focus on mobile division? Learn how to minimize scope and master one division. My opinion, no harm.

  • Okazuma

    Sorry Sony, Ms did it much better with his HoloLens

  • AsadMulla

    it looks fake. The way “SONY” is written looks totally fake

    The actor looks so thrilled to wear those. Haha This is actually very cool if it can work, the application I was thinking about was for automotive purposes. Come to think of it is think I saw a video with some kind of concept for mechanics awhile back

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    It was a concept made by 3rd party. Designing exterior look should be no problem with nowdays user wow imagination. But to makes it fit perfectly with all the inside component are not that easy Task . :-)

  • Timel

    Sony is out! run out of idea and poor, Sony has no money to develop new cool gadgets anymore

    Sony is dying slowly


    Sony SmartEyeglass? Ugly long name, its name should be Walkman Lens I think Sony should reband and turn “WALKANE” to be the product brand of wearable device not just music player like Walkman X (smart hi-res music player), Walkman Orbis (flexible oled-wrist music player), Walkman Lens (smartglasse)

  • joseph carmine nero

    because Sony said they are using this prototype to show off components they sell for smartglass manufacturers

    Sony SmartEyeglass’s UI is fucking horrible but it reminds me of the Terminator T800 lol

  • again?

    You again???

  • Aiden Pearce

    who da hell votes this troll

    you idol

    you idiot

    hololens just be a prototype

  • the_black_dragon

    A Prototype that already works like Augmented Reality should be… and this one is also Prototype, 5 years in the past. I’m a Microsoft AND a big Sony fan and at this point MS is years ahead

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    What does this have anything to do with Microsoft’s HoloLens? This is Sony’s version of Google Glass, HoloLens would be competing against other virtual reality headsets, not things like this or Google Glass. You’re comparing two different things that are far apart. If anything HoloLens is competing against Project Morpheus and Oculus.

    You might be a fan of both tech giants but it helps to know what’s what

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Too bad HoloLens is a VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET, while google Glass and Sony SmartEyeglasses are more for everyday use.

    HoloLens was just a prototype, which looks very promising, but it’s not competing with SmartEyeglasses or Glass, but Project Morpheus and Oculus. You can’t compare a virtual reality headset to something intended for everyday use

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I also think if devices such as this and Google Glass do take off, Sony wants to at least have some type of device and some type of idea of what it is they want. It’s like a half in half out kind of thing, wearable glasses take-off, and Sony has some idea to show where they are going. If they don’t, Sony can say they were sort of committed and had an idea, but weren’t as invested as everyone else

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Leaks are fun, but if you just want renders saying it could be a possible Z4, then ZZCool would have his own article page here filled with all his concepts

  • Timel

    I don’t know too LoL but it’s so funny for me,

    whatever I feel pity you so much that your life depend on those votes… Hope you lucky with that hehe

  • mUSICA

    so r u

  • mUSICA

    can samsung develop any gadgets? i guess no …nxt yr ull see samsong copyn the glasses an the new paper watch.

  • tinker

    troll…go somewhere else…to.shove ur head


    I’m a Microsoft fan too, I hope MS will buy the entire Sony Corporation in the near future

  • doraemonboi

    Google Glass and SmartEyeGlass are both very good idea. The only problem is it looks ugly. Make it like a normal glasses and make it affortable, I will get it.

  • Timel

    I don’t know, I’m not Samsung not even their fan but of course I think Samsung can

    And Copy glasses? Copy who? Sony? LoL dont flatter sony-self too much that’s so stupid If you mean Samsung will copy Sony SmartEyeglass! SmartEyeglass is lame and Google glass copy cat too

    And the most ridiculous is you said Samsung will copy Sony paper watch LoL omifukinggoshhhh are u kidding me? Who the hell want that lame paper watch? this old tech shows that Sony is going backward and shows that how inefficient Sony is hahahahaha

    c’mon brainless fanboy Samsung’ve spent a lot of moneys with flexible oled and flexible battery Samsung is always moving foward with new technologies while Sony is always stuck with old tech and always 10 steps behind Samsung and others tech company like Google Microsoft and Apple.

  • Timel

    Google glass and lame Shitny smarteyeglass Are more everyday use? Lol How please explain

    For me Google glass can accept that at least it has voice command feature but what about Sony SmartEyeglass? There’s nothing useful

  • Timel

    At least Hololens looks much useful more than Sony SmartEyeglass And if you say Hololens is just a prototype then what about Sony SmartEyeglass, Is it a real product?

    Microsoft made AR technology more advanced and useful than ever, Microsoft HoloLens is not just for entertainment (like Oculus VR and Sony project morpheus did) it also can create 3d model, search the internet, video call and of course The A.I. “cortana”

  • Red

    This has got nothing to do with the Walkman range of products, though.

    Well it does say “Demo” at the top and it is a prototype. Sony shows it could be used for work, when he’s checking the machines, or outside, such as running when it shows the heads up display.

    But why explain this shit to a troll when you already have your mindset on something. Especially if that troll waste his own pathetic time coming to a site just to be a fucking douche

  • kaostheory

    Stupid, I want a more rugged version that I can use as a GoPro with hud and keep track of my fellow riders.

  • the_black_dragon

    HoloLens is a AUGMENTED Reality device and not a Virtual Reality… There is a huge difference!
    Smartglass just shows a Head Up display with some information. Sony Smart Eyeglass does the same but in Augmented Reality style depending on that what you see…
    HoloLens does exactly the same as Sony Smart Eyeglass… but 10x more advanced

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    HoloLens isn’t going to compete with glass or Sony’s Smartglassess, it’s to compete against Oculus and Sony’s Project Morpheus. Sony seems to be aiming the Smartglassess to outdoor usage, even if it is still bulky. HoloLens will most likely work with the Xbox

  • Antti Laakso


  • Sachin Gautam

    Ugly as shit, a disgrace to astounding xperia and sony design

  • mimi44

    put glasses and enjoy a display of various information through a small window that does not interfere with the field of view is fantastic.
