SmartEyeglass is equipped with a diverse range of sensing technologies, including a CMOS image sensor, accelerometer, Gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor and microphone. It utilizes these features together with GPS location information from the connected smartphone to provide information optimized to the user’s current circumstances.

Sony has also leveraged its unique hologram optics technology to develop a lens that achieves high transparency of 85% and thickness of just 3.0mm, without the use of half mirrors that obstruct the user’s vision.

Besides these, the monochrome display ensure that while energy consumption is lower than a color display, high luminance is achieved to deliver a screen with clear readability that allows the user to easily read text in a wide range of environments.
