A group of researchers from Nokia and a number of universities have designed a gadget that has the same benefits of Google Glass, while eradicating the need to wear them around one’s face. The gadget, which is tethered to an Epson Android computer and an Arduino Pro Mini (ATmega168), provides an eye-level display for quick, discreet access.
Loupe is described by its creators as a novel interactive device with a near-eye virtual display similar to head-up display glasses that retains a handheld form factor, while having the capability of gaining access to information feeds.
« We present our hardware implementation and discuss our user interface that leverages Loupe’s unique combination of properties. In particular, we present our input capabilities, spatial metaphor, opportunities for using the round aspect of Loupe, and our use of focal depth. We demonstrate how those capabilities come together in an example application designed to allow quick access to information…
