Google GLASS is a very exciting device. But it is not the only game in town. We have seen a number of GLASS challengers in the past. The ORA-1 happens to be a pair of smart glasses capable of running apps as a standalone Android device. It has a camera, 9 axis sensor, Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS. Currently, it runs Android 4.2.2. It’s like using an Android tablet as a pair of glasses to get things done on the go.
The ORA-1 system includes the Wikitude AR browser to provide you with an augmented reality experience. It runs Android apps locally. Users can interact with the device through a large trackpad. Voice commands are also supported. Here are the specs:
- ARM Cortex 9 1.2ghz
- 1GB RAM
- Camera (5MP)
- Trackpad (mouse and swipe)
- inertial sensors
- ambient light sensor
- see-through display with Flip-Vu (augmented reality and glace modes)
- battery life: 7 hours typical use
