Vuzix M100 smart glasses: hands on with the contender trying to beat Google Glass to market
Almost exactly one year ago, we saw an early prototype of Vuzix’s competitor to Google’s Project Glass. It was pretty rough, so we were eager to see how much progress the company made since there. Enough, apparently, to release an SDK for developers to create apps for the M100 smart glasses, which run Android 4.0. The specs (pun intended) include shooting 720p video, 4GB of storage, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The tiny screen sits under your eye and is a “mere” 800 x 480 pixels — but at this distance from your eye the effective size and resolution of the image is actually fairly impressive
