PairASight - Let Others See Through Your Eyes
Generally when somebody states “smart glass”, immediately everybody gets the first thought of Google Glass. But different from Google Glass, a concept of new glass came up known as PairASight which falls into the same category of “smart glass”.
What it is?
PairASight project is an attempt to develop smart glasses which allows others to see what you are seeing via your own eyes no matter how far you are from each other. They would feel like they are present at the moment and watching the scenario with their own eyes. With PairASight technology you no longer have to hold tablet, camcorder or camera to capture photos and videos and then sharing with your friends or relatives. Let them see what you are seeing in real time.
What it consist?
This glass looks like regular glass installed with 2 cameras, each placed on either side. Original model provided only 5MP camera. But later the model upgraded to video camera streaming with 1080p in HD. Also this glass contains speaker and microphone integrated on either side of the glass. Whatever you see is streamed wirelessly to another person allowing you to share real time experience with others. PairASight works on two way audio communication system. Audio and video are streamed wirelessly from the glasses to user’s smartphone or tablet which can be shared anywhere in the world over internet.
How helpful it is?
If someone is stuck somewhere in between and are not able to figure it out what actually the problem is, they can talk to someone without being physically present and show them what they see in 3D with accurate details. This can be helpful in various areas like medical analysis for doctors to show another expert live if they are not able to determine the disease, during automotive repair - if a mechanic is not able to figure out the fault, military soldiers to transfer various information and situation they are into to their respective authorities and it is used for entertainment purpose too.
PairASight project presently employs six individuals and is in the paradigm stage as there is no official declaration on how glasses will communicate with the smartphone or PC, though it has received lot of praise and interest after winning Technovation Award at CE week in New York. Company expects to bring the Glasses into the market early upcoming year with the intention of business use. It will be interesting to witness when PairASight glasses will come into the market and stand against its competitor, Google Glass.
