Move over Google Glass, a new challenger to the non-existent smart glasses throne is in town: Introducing the Olympus EyeTrek INSIGHT featuring a 2.4 megapixel camera.
Mainly known for their amazing lines of cameras and lenses, Japanese optics titan Olympus Corporation is making a play for Google Glass’s niche market space.
A concept that mirrors the Google Glass product in form but not entirely in execution, a device that failed in the consumer market but has since found renewed life in industrial and commercial applications, the Olympus EyeTrek INSIGHT is much more modular in practice than Google Glass.
Olympus claims the EyeTrek “is the latest in enterprise solution optics, an innovative approach to a variety of business applications” with multiple innovations that will make it the “ultimate wearable tool for warehouse logistics, industrial field maintenance, and more.”
Olympus EyeTrek INSIGHT allows for use with either the glasses that accompany the product or will clip onto most other safety or commercial glasses available on the market and used in industrial applications.
