If you are in the market for a new pair of sunglasses and a tablet, the Recon Jet from Recon Instruments is what you are looking for with a wearable computer built onto sports smart eyewear.
The Recon Jet is a stand-alone smart eyewear computing platform that uses a small high definition display to relay information from running applications to the wearer. Onboard the eyewear is a 1 GHz Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with 1 GB of SDRAM and 8 GB of Flash memory storage, which is about the processing power of most smartphones. The sensor system is impressive with 3D accelerometers, gyroscopes and even magnetometers for tracking and identifying large metallic objects, like cars, an altimeter, barometer and an ambient temperature sensor. The wearer controls the information on the screen through a touchpad on the side of the eyewear that can track multi-gestures, hard and soft clicks and can even be operated while wearing gloves.
The Recon Jet uses an internal battery for power that can run the device for up to six hours and can be recharged through a micro USB port. The port also allows data transfer and the system will connect through several network protocols including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and ANT+. And, if the coolest pair of shades on the planet could be any more amazing, they threw in a 720p high definition camera for sharing what you see, a microphone and a speaker for potentially communicating through the system. The Recon Jet will be available later this year for 599 bucks with a 100-dollar discount if you pick it up before July 21st.
