The GlassUp eyeglasses report the incoming e-mails, text messages, tweets, Facebook updates, and other messages, so that the user can keep abreast on what is going on in this big world. The message is shown for only a few instants, on the side of the field of view, in an unobtrusive manner.
They work via a bluetooth connection and a set of apps (Android, iOS, hopefully Windows), depending on the mobile platform and the message you want to receive, so you must have your mobile with you. They are read only, we believe it would be messy to try and manage the messages: to respond to a message you’ll have to go back to your mobile, as usual.
This image represents the first actual prototype, we plan to have more choice of aspect. However they will be lightweight and look decently. They will be rechargeable and the charge will last a full day.
