Sony SmartEyeglass Developer Edition SED-E1 Available In March


Sony's SmartEyeglass prototype takes a step forward with its commercialisation and launch starting from next month.

The SmartEyeglass Developer Edition SED-E1 has bee desifgned for developers, who will get access to both the physical sample and official supporting software developer kit.

Pre-order starts from today in United Kingdom and Germany, with SmartEyeglass Developer Edition available from our Sony Developer World portal from early March for around €670. At launch SmartEyeglass Developer Edition will also be available for purchase ($840) in the United States and Japan. It will also be available only for Sony's enterprise customers in France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands and Sweden.

The "SmartEyeglass" transparent lens eyewear connects with compatible smartphones (Android 4.4 or higher) to superimpose information such as text, symbols, and images onto the user's field of view.

The device is equipped with a diverse range of sensing technologies, including a CMOS image sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor, and microphone. It utilizes these features, together with GPS location information obtained from the connected smartphone, to provide information tailored to the user's immediate circumstances.

Sony has leveraged its hologram optics technology to develop a lens that achieves a high transparency of 85% and a thickness of just 3.0 mm, without the use of half mirrors that obstruct the user's vision.

Holographic waveguide technology entails the propagation of image light that is output from the optical engine, using holographic optical elements embedded in both sides of a glass plate. The light is propagated through the 1 m) glass plate and then delivered to the eyes.


Furthermore, the monochrome display ensures that while energy consumption is lower than a color display, high luminance (up to 1,000 cd/m2) is achieved, realizing a binocular display with clearly legible text under a wide range of conditions.

The exchange of information, from sensing data to images, between the SmartEyeglass and a wirelessly connected smartphone means that, depending on the smartphone app, the device has the potential to be used in a wide range of scenarios.
