Smart Glasses Look Normal–INTEL
I have never seen anyone wear smart glasses in public, probably because smart glasses look too cool to wear. Most people do not want to attract everyone’s attention with those smart glasses looks like come from sci-fi movies.
However, Intel’s smart glasses “Vaunt” look a lot discreetly. It just looks like any other glasses. Vaunt can place messages and notifications onto users retina. Users do not need focus on the messages, and those messages are just there. When users are not looking at the display, messages disapply, so it would not disturb users vision. There are no buttons or gestures, so it is very user-friendly. I believe it would be a disruptive innovation. I personally want a pair of that because it is so convenient. Imagining you have a shopping list somewhere in your phone or pocket, you can just look at them through Vaunt while you are shopping now. On the other hand, the downside is no one knows that the people in front of you are listening to you or not. In today’s society, people play too much smartphone when we are around with our closest friends and family, and smart glasses probably make the situation worse.
Do you think it is a disruptive innovation? Do you want a pair of Vaunt?
