Sony SmartEyeglass Developer Edition SED E1 Now Available

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Mobile Tech Thursday, April 9, 2015

Sony’s SmartEyeglass Developer Edition SED-E1 is now available for sale in ten different countries including the US. The eyeglasses enable  augmented reality and hands-free use cases made possible through Sony’s holographic waveguide technology, which enables super thin augmented reality lenses with high transparency and excellent brightness.

Developers can create augmented reality apps with the SmartEyeglass SDK. The SDK comes with sample code, tutorials, design guidelines, in-depth developer guides, API references, testing and publishing guidelines and support information. Applications run as normal Android apps on a connected smartphone communicating wirelessly over Bluetooth and wireless LAN. It supports devices running Android 4.4 and above

The  SmartEyeglass Developer Edition is equipped with a wide range of sensor technologies, including a CMOS image sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor, and microphone. SmartEyeglass utilizes these features, together with GPS location information obtained from the connected smartphone, to provide the user with information that is tailored for the user’s current task or scenario.

SmartEyeglass are equipped with a thin, lightweight display module designed specifically for transparent lens glasses. The module is made up of two parts: the optical engine, which projects images and text using micro display (µDisplay) technology, and a holographic waveguide, an extremely thin transparent plate of glass measuring just 1mm. 

The waveguide is a Sony technology that takes the light created in the optical engine and projects a virtual image through the holographic optical elements to the eyes of the wearer. Together with the protective plating, this technology enables more than 85% outside light transmittance, with lenses that are only 3mm thin in total.

The glasses display is monochrome, to help ensure low energy consumption and high luminance (up to 1,000 cd/m2). This enables a binocular display, where text and information is clearly visible under a wide range of lighting conditions.

Specifications include:

- Augmented reality eyewear with a wired controller.
- Binocular, see-through monochrome 8-bit display with more than 85% transmittance.
- 3 MP camera for still images.
- Includes accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor, microphone and noise suppression sub microphone.
- Wireless LAN and Bluetooth connection to the host Android device.
- More than 150 minutes of continuous use.
- Speaker and microphone included.
- Weight approx. 77 g (2.7 oz) without controller.
- Supports devices running Android 4.4 and above.
