It features Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connection, near-eye HD resolution of 1280x720 resolution, supports 500-megapiexl camera and full HD 1080p videos recording.
According to ChipSiP president George Tai, users can share their visual world in real-time, or have an immediate live view chat with their family and friends in a remote distance with SiMEye Smart Glass.
"With the standalone and standard Android platform, the SiMEye Smart Glass allows users to download their favourite apps now, and enjoy the wearable entertainment.
