Technology project GlassUp plans to support Windows Phone. The idea is to turn a pair of glasses into a heads-up display, adding an extra display for smartphone owners. How does it work? The pair of glasses sports a projector to display information on the right lens at a resolution of 320x240. Facebook, Twitter, emails and SMS and more have been provided as examples.
It's reported that augmented reality will also be on the cards, though it's still early days and we're holding off our judgement on the product for now. Two versions are believed to be in development, each supporting Bluetooth 4 and 3.1 respectively. €299 is the pre-order price with the expected shipping month of September later this year.
It's stated that initially the products will only sport compatibility with iOS and Android products, but Windows Phone (as pictured above) will be targeted in due course. Competing with Google's concept, it'll be interesting to see if the cheaper option will prove popular enough to take off.
