Over the last few months our SmartEyeglass prototype has been one of the most talked about smart eyewear concepts – today the project takes a major step forward, as we announce both commercialisation and launch from March 2015.

The SmartEyeglass Developer Edition SED-E1 will give developers access to both the physical sample and official supporting software developer kit – as we continue to grow the ecosystem of transparent binocular lens experiences and superimposed augmented reality content.

SmartEyeglass Developer Edition

Pre-order starts from today in United Kingdom and Germany, with SmartEyeglass Developer Edition available from our Sony Developer World portal from early March* for around €670. It will sit alongside the updated SDK, with regularly updated information and support for developers to get going and unleash their creativity on this new platform.

Check out Sony Developer World for the full scoop on our Android smartphone-extending eye-wear concept – and stay tuned for more, as we head towards the launch and beyond.

*At launch SmartEyeglass Developer Edition will also be available for purchase in the United States and Japan. It will also be available only for enterprise customers in France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands and Sweden.
