Update:All of this news is a joke, on the occasion of the day of the Holy Innocents, on 28 December. Therefore the content is false.
As we know very well in this blog, Android is synonymous with innovation. And today we are pleased to announce a Interactive glasses with smells, sounds and also flavors such as promotion of tourism in Spain. It is the idea that being developed at the Department of computer engineering from the campus of Orihuela of the University Miguel Hernández of Elche, work that is being conducted in collaboration with Keio University in Tokyo and the National University of Singapore, where it has established the scientific basis of these glasses, focusing at the moment on the possibility of recognizing someone else through the transmission of smells and sounds , as reflected in New Scientist.
The version that has been entrusted to the Spanish University and in which collaborates Engadget and Engadget Android with your test bench it goes a little further and incorporates a third sense, taste, key to the development of commercial glasses and applications that would be purchased by communities, denominations of origin and entities that want to promote themselves and collaborate with the financing of this product. The enlargement has been pretty easy thanks to programming based on Android, which makes the highly scalable project in a very simple way.
Sound to the flavors and odors sunglasses
The initial idea of Asian universities is easy to operate. A few goggles infrared sensors detect when we are looking at a person that used the same system as us, it identifies its smell and instantly receive your name, phone, personal data and sounds and smells preferred by the other person. All through the application “ contacts ” Android, that are so accustomed to using.
As described in the New Scientist article, that approach through the familiar sounds and the smell should help socialize people more difficult.
The model developed in Spain introduces the variable taste in order to include that feeling which could experience a tourist or visitor to stroll through the vineyards of La Rioja, see pictures in The Prado or entering a bar specializing in fried fish.
SDK and API for the development of applications based on Android
With heart Android and based on the Arduino platform., Interactive sunglasses #gp, that is how early prototypes, are called by the time they leave open the door to independent developers create applications and new features through a Release of the Android-based API and SDK.
First prototype of the receiver’s glasses #gf based on the Arduino platform.
The first applications will be developed by public organizations and denominations of origin, one of them related to the ham, and who will be promoted from the year coming in the country of origin of the idea, Japan. Its tourists, when they visit different areas of Spain in gastronomic tourism, may use new glasses to detect and feel without spending a euro good ham.
In the future, the glasses can buy directly by consumers, who will have a series of applications at your disposal with fragrant, audio guides and flavors of bars, cities, or areas of Spain.
Contact with the senses, key in your design center
The design rather peculiar sunglasses #gp is not random. In the Department of tecnobiologia of the campus of Orihuela developed a way for sunglasses that focus the secondary PIN at the exact point in which converge all the senses present in the face of the human being: hearing, sight, smell and taste.
Depending on the application that is currently running in sunglasses, the secondary pin, finished in a transmitter, it sends a signal to the center of the senses which communicates directly with the part of the brain responsible for each of the senses that we want to promote and to those who are going to deceive.
The bottom PIN is responsible for connecting the impulses to the brain
Engadget has already tested them
As part of an initiative of collaboration with various technology companies and Spanish universities by means of which the editors of Engadget and Xataka Android are offered as guinea pigs for various technological developments, Interactive sunglasses #gp they have gone through the hands. The final idea is that in Engadget let’s talk about gadgets to help Spanish brands (with the support of public universities) to remove products that have in some cases brand Engadget in your name.
Sunglasses #gp have been the first, but they will not be the last. As part of the test bring them to the feast of the Engadget Awards, where on your screen you could enjoy a guided tour of the stands of the different brands through virtual reality.
Javier Penalva, Coordinator for Engadget, the first functional model of the iGafas
If you were in the safe feast that you remember them. The Coordinator of Engadget, wore them although it was already almost commercial model connecting wirelessly via bluetooth with the dressing room, where the receiver would send the data. If you saw Penalva’s many visits to the dressing rooms was precisely because autonomy has not yet been resolved properly and needed frequent battery changes.
No trade name yet, both the Miguel Hernández University and interested in putting to sale or distribution companies, are considering pick up such as name the almost trending topic that was the hashtag #gafasdepenalva in the Engadget awards. The idea is that the GafasdePenalva may be on the street before the second half of 2012. Surely the sale is direct through our blog. Therefore do not worry those who want to buy them, you will be the first to know.
