Sony SmartglassSony is showing off the SmartEyeglass prototype at Mobile World Congress 2014. As you can probably guess, this is Sony’s answer to Google Glass, but at the moment it is purely at a concept stage. Potential examples for us include displaying directions as you walk into an airport or showing the names of players whilst watching a live football game. You will also be able to use it to read text messages, be notified of any incoming or missed calls or use it to snap a picture.

However, it doesn’t seem as slick as Google Glass. You need to use a wired controller to navigate the UI and control the embedded camera on SmartEyeglass. Sony is currently working on a SDK for SmartEyeglass, which is built using a similar framework to the Sony SmartWatch 2. However, Sony has no timeline on when this SDK will be released. Can you see yourself using the Sony SmartEyeglass? Let us know your thoughts below.
