gad1_9oct-1764x700At present, one of the emerging technology is the Smart glasses. Google, Sony and others already marked their foot prints in this platform, now Toshiba has unveiled Toshiba Glass.

In Toshiba Glass the projector projects images on to a series of thin, vertical prisms which are almost invisible but reflect light back to the eye to provide an augmented reality display. On the other hand Google included a prism over the lens to reflect the content to the user’s eye.

Toshiba Glass weighs roughly 42 grams, which is same as the weigh of Google Glass, and will also come in three types of frame options such as standard, sporty and industrial.
