Amazon’s New Facial Recognition Smells Your FearSnapchat’s New Snap Spectacles Will Have Two Cameras, Cost $350 Stay on target As far as future fashion goes, glasses that double as computers always seemed like a no-brainer. They are as inevitable as flying cars and total rule by corporations. And yet even as wearable technology becomes more of a thing, folks just don’t see that interested in strapping computers to their face. Google Glass, Snapchat Specs, and HoloLens are all non-starters. VR surrendered to fascists. Augmented reality has promise but we’re still waiting on ambitious start-ups like Magic Leap to pull through.If you’re looking forward to some hot eye tech to be stoked about though, consider checking out the Toshiba DynaEdge. It’s basically a Windows 10-powered monitor condensed into a monocle.The Toshiba DynaEdge consists of two parts. The eyepiece is a 640 x 360 display that rests over a single eye, providing AR functionality as well as the ability to still see the real world. It’s connected to a second piece, a computer the size of a smartphone but that packs laptop-class power. Together, you can use DynaEdge to access the full Windows 10 operating system with your eyes.The specs are impressive for such a small, unusual device. DynaEdge has an Intel 6th Generation m Processor, Intel HD Graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, 802.11ac and LTE wireless, USB ports and MicroSD slots, a headphone jack, and a fingerprint scanner. It’s a real computer, albeit one that fits into a belt case and hooks up to your eyeball. Toshiba even claims four hours of battery life.Being able to run Windows 10 gives DynaEdge familiarity with millions of users and software makers who already use Microsoft’s OS all the time. But obviously being smart glasses changes up how users interact with the device. Inputs include a touchpad on the side of the eyepiece and buttons on the computer itself. Toshiba is developing custom software and in the future it wants others to do the same. One idea involved connecting DynaEdge to safety goggles and providing constructor workers with up-to-date data about a current project.Like pretty much all of these kinds of products, DynaEdge isn’t ready for consumers yet. We don’t know what it costs. Even after two years of research, Toshiba is still testing it internally and with employees at other close companies. But if Toshiba has its way, and consumers respond, smart glasses like DynaEdge may finally be the future of laptop computing.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
