The new device is thoroughly trained to create the illusion of movement of human quality in a virtual or mixed reality. And the glasses provide the transmission of information in both directions.

American company Sensics introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES 2012), perhaps the most advanced in the world sunglasses display for immersive virtual and augmented reality.

A device called Natalia not only allows you to view three-dimensional world in high definition, but also reads the real time gestures of the owner, and measures the position of his head.

Dual display OLED set within these points, shows a three-dimensional image at 1280 x 1024 (also available resolution support 720p). This provides excellent for such systems in the field of view of 64 degrees. Complements the stereo image (solid headphones, as is easily seen, are part of the machine.)

To enter information into the virtual world has a built-in microphone. And most importantly — the outside of the glasses are 11 cameras to capture and gesture recognition user. So people can directly interact with the objects in a fictional universe or give commands to objects in augmented reality.

That the picture before my eyes shifted correctly, depending on the movements of man, "Natalia" uses embedded tracker that determines the linear acceleration of the head and its angular position.

To work correctly, all this economy, "Natalia" has a built-in dual-core processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz, and 3D graphics co-processor, and animates this iron operating system Android 4.0.

Filling points can perform a number of applications on their own, with no connection to a computer or game console. However, for communication with the PC already provides two channels of communication: on board the "Natalia" are wireless transceivers, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

In the decade Sensics built similar systems in the first place for the military, said DVICE, and is now making a new step.

The company intends to work with manufacturers and developers of software and computer hardware in the development and diffusion of the technology of "smart glasses» (SmartGoggles — brand Sensics) and is already in negotiations in this field.

Output "Natalie" on the market is scheduled for the end of 2012. Estimated price — about $ 1000.
