With the growing popularity of wearable technology like Google Glasses, very important and difficult choices arise in regards to what such devices should be called. "Smartglasses" or "Smart Glasses". Read why it matters and which term is winning.
Erik Bowitz's insight:
Have you been calling them by the wrong word all along?
A tiny unfunded five-person startup in Massachusetts has created a Google Glass alternative that, they say, is much more immersive than Glass — and much less geeky.
The product is a set of smart glasses — “smartspecks” — that can give you heads-up directions, take pictures, record videos, display on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram updates from your friends, and more. Just like Google Glass, connectivity to the cloud is via your phone. Unlike Google Glass, however, all the intelligence resides in an app on that phone.
“We designed the simplest most minimalist device that we could,” LaForge Optical CEO Corey Mack told VentureBeat. “Anyone who wants Google Glass … in a more conventional form factor can have it. Additionally our lens technology allows for people who need prescription lenses (about 65 percent of the population) to be able to use our glasses.”
The upshot, he says, is that LaForge Optical delivers 80 percent of what people want from a pair of smart glasses — with 20 percent of the complication.
