SmartEyeglass Facebook_1_resultThe Sony SmartEyeglass (SED-E1) is Sony’s answer to Google Glass. The accessory is due to launch within the year and it recently passed through the FCC, leaving with it a few schematics as detailed below.

Sony Mobile also recently launched a couple of dedicated apps for the SmartEyeglass, one each for Facebook and Twitter. These apps will allow you to view notifications in the Sony smart accessory display. We’re not entirely sure why this has been released publicly so early, but it is likely for those testing the units.

    And those are lollipop screenshots, very exciting

  • hassan chauhadry

    so finally lollipop screenshots……..but there isw no major change in the notification panel
    Sony must change the battery icon ……
    previous one on ANDROID jelly bean were good ….

  • abzbvx

    these are nearly exactly KitKat ones.. pff sony for real

  • hassan chauhadry

    exactly… and these arent good enough for lollipop

  • Tukan

    Facebook app lollipop-ish but Twitter app KitKat-ish? What? Oh and I’m really confused because if you look closely on the status bar you can see AOSP 4.4 icons (signal, alarm clock, bt) and Sony Kitkat battery but on the other hand there are those mythical “lollipop” on-screen buttons and colored status bar. I’m very, very confused and slightly dissapointed at the same time. I really hope that this is not what i recieve as an update.

    Let’s hope that SONY will not disappoint us this time

    Trust me the new Xperia UI is ugly and cheap

  • Raj Singh

    Hopefully the consumer or commercial version of the hardware will look way better…
    The current prototype isn’t so pretty.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

  • walker

    Samsung and Sony both are ugly but when people have to decide to get one they still choose samsung over sony, no one cares about Sony! Why? What a shame!

  • Dakota

    The cell signal icon is different, look closely, the kitkat one is like stairs, this one is an even slope

  • Dakota

    The cell signal icon is different

    dude, get a life

  • Ritwij

    New UI launches with a new phone and Lollipop is coming before Z4, so we might not see a new UI right now.

  • Deniz Do?an

    Still looks like Kitkat, must be a theme or a custom rom.

  • Kabuto Kouji

  • Sadman Khan

    “Made in Japan”, nostalgia at its best. Hope to see more electronics made in Japan in the future, though I seriously doubt it.
