Toshiba dynaEdge: AR glasses with mini PC on the cable
The glasses for the augmented reality should provide assistance in the working world.
Eyewear for Augmented Reality has not really convinced the consumer market so far. At first, Google did not go beyond developer status with its Goolge Glass and is now to be established in the world of work . And even Snapchat could not convince with its spectacles called glasses. By contrast, corresponding solutions are much more popular in companies. Epson has been developing the Moverio series for several years and Microsoft is also seeing the future of its HoloLens glasses in professional use.
Toshiba now also includes eyewear in the program, which is also supplied with a mini-PC. The glasses system has a screen with a diagonal of 0.26 inches which has a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. The navigation is done with the help of a compact touchpad. There is also a 5 MP camera and two noise-canceling microphones. With the help of an acceleration sensor and a gyroscope the head movements should be understood. The weight should be less than 60 grams.
The associated computer sits in a housing that measures 16.5 x 8.5 x 2 centimeters. In the processor, the Japanese rely on core-m chips of the Skylake generation, which are supported by up to 16 gigabytes of LPDDR3 RAM. For storing data, SSDs can be integrated in M.2 format, which are connected using the SATA interface and are available in sizes of 128, 256 and 512 gigabytes. For expansion, a microSD card can be inserted. A network connection is ensured with a WLAN module ac-standard or an LTE modem, periphery (or the glasses) is connected via USB 3.1 (Gen1) or USB 3.0.
For the control of the computer five hardware keys are offered, the protection is to be accomplished with the help of a fingerprint scanner.
