Good times, but compared to the ODG R-8 smartglasses Google s now-defunct specs seem decidedly prehistoric.
Unveiled during the Qualcomm CES 2017 press conference in Las Vegas the R-8 smartglasses offer AR augmented reality , VR virtual reality and mixed reality viewing experiences – basically they give you a glimpse of the future of vision.
The R-8 boasts a 40 degree field of view FOV and a HD resolution and allow consumers to access the familiarity of movies, sports, gaming, navigation and education experiences on smartglasses that are lighter, smaller and sleeker.
There were also a set of enterprise-focused smartglasses announced too, with the ODG R-9 featuring a 1080p full HD resolution and 70 degree field of view.
We re still waiting to hear about the ODG R-8 release date and price, and we ll update this story once we know the details – but with its predecessor the R-7 costing $2,750 around £2,250, AU$3,800 don t expect an affordable price tag this time around.
