TL;DR: Get hands-free control over your smartphone with the GLOW mixed reality smart glasses for $489, a 7% savings as of Aug. 16.
With all the technological innovations in recent years, your dream of becoming Tony Stark may soon become a reality. You remember Iron Man’s super OP sunglasses that could devastate the planet in the wrong hands? They are real. Well, not the devastation part. But if you’re looking for a stylish, less-costly and entertainment-ready alternative to Google Glass, then check out GLOW.
Produced by MAD Gaze, GLOW is one of the lightest smart glasses you can get. Built with entertainment in mind, the device is like carrying a cinema right in your pocket. With 720p picture quality and a 45-degree field of view, the screens are comparable to watching a 90-inch TV from three meters away. Since the picture is displayed on both lenses, you can enjoy both 2D and 3D movies on the device.
Unlike VR goggles, you can stay fully aware of the outside world thanks to some cool augmented reality tech. Take full control of the device by tapping the glasses, calling out commands, or gesturing with your hands. With all these options for managing the spectacles in different environments, you don’t have to worry about being the loud person in the library.
GLOW’s battery offers five hours of Mixed Reality fun and is also virtually compatible with any device. It can be plugged into an iOS or Android phone while you’re on-the-go, a game console while you’re chilling at home, or your computer while you’re working. With all this good stuff packed into one device, it is no wonder MAD Gaze was able to successfully launch this product on Kickstarter with over $200,000 of funding.
For a limited time, you can snag the GLOW: Mixed Reality Smart Glasses at a $40 discount for $489 (regularly $529).
