Kopin's Golden-i Infinity Is What Google Supposed To Be, But Comes At A Cheaper Price «Next Reality



If you have a particular area in tech, you will be able to use Google Glass style of augmented reality. And while I stay mostly uninterested in such devices, one of these products has recently earned my admiration, and might work for you, too, under the right circumstances. It's called the Golden-i Infinity.

Unveiled at this year's AWE conference by Massachusetts-based Kopin, the incredibly well-designed device is super light at just 1.5 ounces and clips on standard eyeglasses to a construction helmet.

Yes, but it's much different. Many years ago, when Google launched Glass first, I gave it a try and what mostly unimpressed. The pictures were frustratingly small and often blurred, the physical design was distracting for many, and the limited number of apps and cases did not go to warrant the eye-popping $ 1

,500 price tag.

Flash forward to today and, even though there are still enthusiastic Glass users out there, I'm still not interested , But somethin 'the Golden-i Infinity is something I could actually see using in 2018. It's just pretty, it's tough: it has a ruggedized IP67 waterproof and drop-proof design, and comes with a magnetic universal harness for mounting safety glasses or goggles.

Conveniently, the Golden-i Infinity is powered by the host device's it's connected to (your Android smartphone or Windows PC), which gives you a mobile life of 12 to 24 hours, depending on the mobile device you're using. The Golden-Infinity itself also uses a tiny, rechargeable lithium-ion battery (3200 mAh).
