Toshiba dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses running Microsoft Windows
The Japanese giant has officially announced the Toshiba dynaEdge AR, a Windows PC with smart glasses that presents a small peculiarity, and is that unlike other systems such as Google Glass or HoloLens does not integrate all the components in the mount, but comes mounted on an independent box.
In the image that we accompany we can see the composition of dynaEdge AR. We have the glasses that act as a screen and have different components, including the front camera, and a small box in which are mounted other elements such as the processor, the storage system and RAM.
This box has very compact measures and a reasonable weight ( 311 grams ), so in general, it is a comfortable device to carry and use, although its price will be quite high.
Toshiba has confirmed that the price of dynaEdge AR will be $ 1,900, a huge figure that places it between Google Glass (about $ 1,500) and Microsoft’s HoloLens ($ 3,000).
For that money offers an augmented reality system integrated into the glasses and have a processor Intel Core M (Skylake), and a 0.8-inch screen with a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels.
For the RAM, there will be options from 4 GB to 16 GB of RAM, and storage will be powered with SSD from 128 GB to 512 GB, and there will also be GPS, 3G LTE connectivity, and integrated WiFi.
The device will also be carrying Fingerprint reader for the user privacy, and the most interesting part of the new Toshiba AR Glasses is that it will be running on Windows 10 as the operating system.
Toshiba dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses availability has been announced for the second quarter of this year, which means that it should reach the market in the coming weeks. The price of $ 1,900 is for the most basic configuration.
