Sony SmartEyeglass apps now available on Google Play

Sony SmartEyeglass apps now available on Google Play
Back in September, Sony announced that it's developing its own eyewear device, called SmartEyeglass. The company said that the wearable gadget would go on sale before the end of March 2015, though since then it didn't provide any updates on the matter. However, the device - which looks bulkier than Google Glass - is certainly coming soon.

Recently, Sony released two official SmartEyeglass apps that can be downloaded via Google Play. They are companion apps that will allow SmartEyeglass users to view Facebook and Twitter content and notifications. In addition, the SmartEyeglass passed the FCC (it needed to, as it features both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth).

Sony hasn't decided how much to ask for the SmartEyeglass. However, just like Google's Glass, the device will most probably be pretty expensive. Sony will make the SmartEyeglass compatible not just with Xperia handsets, but with all smartphones running at least Android 4.1 (though some features will be available only on devices with Android 4.3 or later).

Would you wear something like the Sony SmartEyeglass on a daily basis?

If you could put darker lens on instead of the clear lenses, then I would get a pair, but only if the price is right as well.

I think the one pictured in the article isn't the one they'll release as it's the prototype from last year. Because they showed off a newer modular one at CES 2015.
