This glasses-type wearable device was announced today in 2016.1280 x 720 dots, approximately 260,000 colors can be displayed, and the input adopts HDMI. Surprisingly, it weighs only 50g [body only] and is super lightweight. The secret lies in the fact that all functions other than the display, including the battery, are relied on externally. If you consider that a power supply, cable, and Windows PC are required separately, the total weight when installed will be reasonably heavy, deviating from a smart impression. However, there was a merit in terms of glasses not being heavy and versatility. As you can see from the fact that it can not be used as it is, this product is not intended for general use, but is announced as a product for companies that assume that it is necessary to develop applications on their own.
The price is 216,000 yen, and it was starting up to reservation as scheduled to be released on February 29, but …Unfortunately, development and release have been discontinued.
According to the release
This decision was made as part of the review of the business portfolio and business management system, which is a management measure in the “New Toshiba Action Plan”.
And that. It was just after the discovery of dressing and settlement, and was it difficult to develop such a field with strong up-front investment? I think the development team was disappointed.
