BMW unveils wearable glasses for Mini users with driver X-ray view
The attraction of wearable devices is hitting almost everyone. Just the other day Apple introduced its very pricey Apple Watch and now it is the turn of another market leader in a different segment to come out with its own wearable device.
BMW, the German luxury car manufacturer has come out with a very different wearable for its premium car owners. The company has showcased eye-wearable device that looks and feels like recently dumped Google Goggles.
The company says that its eye-wearable is going to be of immense use for its owners as it will help Mini drivers receive navigation tips, messages, and above all how to park their vehicle with ease. Reports suggest that the latest BMW eyewear comes with a built-in camera and see-through display technology on the lenses. The key functions are aimed at improving navigation and driving safety.
One of the great aspects of this eye-wearable is the fact that its camera records the view while driving and allows information to be displayed without being overlaid on surrounding motorists. Besides, the camera displays speed and speed limits in the eyewear so that the information is in the driver’s primary field of view. A driver using the BMW glasses will be able to select his destination through the glasses before entering the vehicle, mileage and time to destination, speed limits, messages and texts that will be read out by the car.
Another feature of this product is the fact that it will give a driver X-ray view through the car to improve parking. Doors and A-pillars will miraculously disappear while wearing Mini goggles. It is going to be showcased at Auto Shanghai trade fair later this month.
