Google Glass glasses are not yet accessible to a wide range of users, and scientists and researchers have developed the new smart personal wearable gadgets. Here device, the hallmark of which is the lack of displays.
Japanese engineers began testing a miniature computer Earclip-type Wearable PC, which weighs 17 g is attached to the user’s ear. The device has a built-in sensor GPS, compass, gyroscope, barometer, speaker, microphone, data storage and battery. Control a gadget will be using eyebrow movements, language and other micro-movements of the head.
To read commands use an infrared sensor that responds to muscle contraction, for example, when the position of the eyebrows, tongue movement and so on, writes Rappler. As explained Kazuhiro Taniguchi of Hiroshima University, the device will be convenient for astronauts or motorcyclists, such as climbers: both their hands are usually busy, and because ” third hand does not hurt them .”
The microcomputer can be used in combination with a variety of tablets, smartphones and players. In addition , the device is able to receive data on the physiological state of a person – for this reason it can be used to monitor the elderly. Plans to release the first commercial prototype by the end of 2015.
