This is Brian Bennett for CNET, and we are at Mobile World Congress 2014.
And we've been taking a look at all sorts of devices, wearable technology.
We've got goggles, watches, wristbands, all sorts of stuff.
And sometimes, it can be just crazy complicated and are you really gonna use that in your regular life?
So, right now, we're taking a first look at the Weon Glasses.
And if you look at this, it looks just like a ordinary
pair of eyeglasses, has a very standard frame.
Certainly not a Google Glass device here.
You couldn't even tell it was anything special, had any high-tech capabilities at all.
But what you'll notice is there's LED in the arm that will light up when notifications happen on your smartphone.
So, if you get an e-mail, social media alert, Twitter message, it will light up in the corner of your peripheral vision, right there by the corner of your eye, and you'll be able to know what's happening without actually digging in to your
pocket for your phone.
Now, another thing you can do is you can actually set the color for the notification, so you can have green or red or yellow, whatever, depending on what kind of notification comes in.
So, one of the really interesting things about the Weon Glasses is that it has a way to locate it if you lose it.
So, say you don't know where it is.
It could be under the couch, behind the bed, somewhere in the house.
All you gotta do is go over to your smartphone, open the app, and it's a little radar display.
Essentially just locate the
glasses by the Bluetooth signal, so you don't have to worry about, you know, did you leave it at home, on the train, or somewhere down the street.
Hopefully, every pair of eyeglasses will have this in the future.
So, the Weon Glasses are expected to ship by May of 2014.
And the approximate pricing that we're told, it should cost â?¬129 or the U.S. dollar equivalent, so that's probably gonna be the same price and also will be available in America, as well as Europe.
So, there you have it, folks.
