K-Glass, Korea’s Google Glass Alternative

South Korean researchers from KAIST university say they have developed K-Glass, an alternative to Google Glass. via WSJ:

As an electronic eyewear, K-Glass shares many similarities with Google Glass. But Yoo Hoi-jun, a professor at South Korea’s KAIST university who spearheaded the project, says it comes with a special chip that expands the pool of objects the device can properly recognize without relying on barcodes or other markers.

The processor “duplicates the ability of the human brain to process visual data,” KAIST said. But the K-Glass, as seen in the photo, is a lot bulkier than Google Glass which is a small-sized rectangular computer attached to the frame of spectacles.

“We have yet to decide on a specific target application, which will be needed in commercializing the product,” Yoo said.

K-Glass has a long way to go until commercialization but the project comes at an opportune time.
