First Look: Telepathy One guns for Google Glass

1:32 /

The Telepathy One enters the wearable computing race, with an onboard camera, heads-up display, and communications functionality that puts Google Glass squarely in the crosshairs.

-A wearable headsets like these, part of some sort of Star Trek future that's on the horizon. I'm Scott Stein and I'm wearing the Telepathy One, another device that's increasingly growing landscape that Google Glass seems to be berthing. Much like Google Glass, you're dealing with a bluetooth wearable headset here, with a projector here, a micro projector that hovers over your eye and delivers in an inch that hovers right about here where I'm looking. But the idea with the Telepathy One is very simple. There's, sort of a dream behind this, the founders thinking about the idea of telepathy between individuals and intimate communication. Right now the App Future is very specific about sharing streaming videos with a small circle of friends, who will then be able to comment, what you see would be the comments and that information over here. There's some other app support as well. There's an app that turns what you see into animated Manga comics, and-- but as far as other apps, not right now, is gonna be pretty basic and the goal is to have this released by the end of the year at a price that will be competitive with Google Glass. What will you use this for? Well, that's a good question and that's a question that a lot of this territory's gonna be working out. How does this stuff feel? How will it be comfortable? And one angle here is aesthetics, the idea is that this will be, maybe a little less intrusive that the projector is not as bulky as the Google Glass Optics. Would you like to have an intimate moment with me? We shall see when the Telepathy One, maybe arrives by the end of this year. So stay tuned. I'm Scott Stein wearing the Telepathy One, in New York.
