Intel Unveils "Vaunt" Smartglasses

Intel is launching plain-looking smartglasses [engadget.com] that beam a monochrome red image directly into your retina using a laser. There are no cameras on the device:

Intel has launched an impressively light, regular-looking set of smart glasses called Vaunt, confirming rumors [engadget.com] from Bloomberg and others. Seen by The Verge [theverge.com], they have plastic frames and weigh under 50 grams, a bit more than regular eyeglasses but much less than Google Glass, for example. The electronics are crammed into the stems and control a very low-powered, class one laser that shines a red, monochrome 400 x 150 pixel image into your eye. Critically, the glasses contain no camera, eliminating the "big brother" vibe from Glass and other smart glasses.
