Recently we presented you with Memi, the smartbracelet for women. If you remember, we said that the beautifully designed piece of jewelry was meant to alert a woman every time her smartphone rings or receives messages in the purse or in another room in the house.
Now, the smart devices family becomes richer with a new member: the new Meme smartglasses, a Bluetooth – powered wearable gadget that gives us a heads – up every time we are about to fall asleep. Why is such device interesting? Well, if you think about the number of car accidents caused by drivers who fell asleep for a second behind the wheel, you surely realize that such device may actually prevent a lot of tragic accidents and save peoples’ lives.
There is a fun side to the Meme smartglasses as well: reviewers insist on college students never falling asleep during courses and seminars and over-worked professionals never falling asleep during meetings. On a more serious note, the new Meme smartglasses are a healthy – oriented device, as they warn us when we are exhausted, urging us to take a break and not push it too far.
How do the Meme Smartglasses actually work?
According to the people from Endgadget,
The Bluetooth wearable includes both eye and motion sensors that can tell when you’re close to nodding off. If it gets to that point, a companion smartphone app will give you a heads-up. The eyewear is useful even when you’re fully alert, as it can handle basic fitness duties like step counting and calorie tracking.
As you see, the wearable piece of tech may prove itself very useful in the future. So far, everything we know about manufacturing and pricing is that the new Meme smartglasses are produced in Japan by JINS. The company will start delivering three smartglasses models at a national level, with prices ranging from $685 to $979 (according to present currency convertors). Unfortunately, there is no official word on when and how the glasses will be exported to the United States.
In Japan they are set to be released in the spring of 2015 and U.S. tech enthusiasts already expressed their support for the new Meme smartglasses. Why? Well, let’s put it this way: they don’t look as freaky as the Google Glass and they are actually more useful to our lives than many other wearable gadgets on the market. If you take into account the sunglasses version of the Meme, you might be waiting for the best deal ever in terms of futuristic devices. Stay tuned to the news, as we will come back when we find out more about these awesome spectacles.
