Human Capable has introduced Norm Glasses at CES 2019. As revealed by the company, Norm glasses are barely distinguishable from regular sunglasses; however, they have a “mini computer” embedded inside the frame, including CPU, memory, battery, speakers, microphones, camera, and a display system that can project digital information into the user’s field of view.
Using Norm Glasses, the user can see instructions while keeping hands busy on work, see and respond to text messages, answer or make phone calls, navigate while keeping eyes on the street, check stock prices, call an Uber, etc. For the editions equipped with a camera, it can also scan barcodes, take pictures, or record videos. It supports live streaming/broadcast, and remote assistance.
Norm Glasses have voice recognition that doesn’t depend on an internet connection, and the user can interact with Norm using voice. In addition, a finger-movement based interaction solution is in the pipeline.
Smart glasses are not new, but people have been waiting for products that look normal, lightweight, and affordable.
