Lenovo’s Rival to Google Glass
The Chinese Computer giant Lenovo has revealed its version of smart glasses which it hopes will rival Google Glass.
The as of yet unnamed device hopes to take advantage of the Google Glass main shortfall of a short battery life as it has added a separate power device that is worn around the neck.
Lenovo has acknowledged that it will require help form other companies if their hope to for the “internet of things” is to be realized.
Lenovo’s senior vice president Chen Xudong was quoted by PC World magazine as saying “Right now there are too many kinds of devices you can develop for the Internet of Things. It’s too rich. Not one company can do it all.”
The internet of things is the concept that objects all around us such as smart phones lights and household appliances are all connected to the internet. It would pave the way for fully connected homes where everything can be controlled by apps and devices would react to their environments without the need for constant intervention by humans.
The biggest Challenge would obviously be letting all these devices communicate to each other and requires cooperation from companies to ensure that different devices can communicate coherently with each other which will require new standards to be set up and agreed to.
