For several months, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Meta has been developing augmented reality glasses “that combine the power of a laptop and smartphone in a pair of thick Ray-Bans and a small pocket computer.”
The Meta Pro will have an i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. It will cost $3,000, and the company hopes to ship by June.
Meta is hoping to compete with Google Glass, although it is not currently wireless. The glasses have 15x the display of Google Glass, and runs 3-D instead of 2-D. Its optics are thinner, at 2mm vs 5mm, and its sensors recognize hand gestures, which makes control easier than touching the side of your face.
