One of the complaints about Google Glass is that other people are worried that they’re being monitored without their knowing it. For Glass, it probably isn’t true. But Pivothead’s new SMART eyewear is designed to livestream HD video, which may be a little creepy.
Pivothead, whose Indiegogo campaign ends January 11, has released an SDK that will allow the SMART to interact with other devices, letting users control the camera and stream from, for instance, a watch or smartphone app. The goggle itself has 16GB of onboard memory (expandable with micro SD cards), replaceable batteries, an 8MP still camera, and can accommodate prescription lenses.
Consumer launch is slated for the Spring. Pricing is a little unclear, not atypical for crowdsourced projects; a full kit costs $409 — at least through the 11th.
