Google Glass Competitor Developed In Japan
Telepathy One is attempting to provide a stylish and cheaper alternative with a micro projection unit and in-ear speakers.
Telepathy One is a next generation wearable device that could become a sleeker and cheaper alternative to Google Glass. A couple of notable difference between the two units is that Telepathy One lacks a glass display, opting instead for a micro projection unit, and it utilizes in-ear speakers for audio rather than a bone conduction transducer.
There is no release date yet, but considering all of the anticipation around the product, Telepathy One is probably one of several alternatives we’ll see prior to the Glass release later this year.
Telepathy One is designed to provide steady visual information in a natural and safe way. It connects wirelessly with smartphones and tablets, enabling you to control what you view and use a variety of apps.
The device also features an integrated camera and a low power consumption design. It was demonstrated at SXSW earlier this year and you can see how the attendees reacted to Telepathy One in the video below:
