Baidu Eye Prototype Showcased During Company's Annual Conference – Details



Baidu Eye

Baidu, the search engine giant of China, has teased a working prototype of its upcoming Google Glass rival, which is called Baidu Eye. The wearable device which was first leaked back in the April this year, is still in the development stage, as informed by the company officials.

The Baidu Eye will be much like Google Glass, though; it will not sport the display screen, as the Baidu Director of International Communications, Kaiser Kuo, told to Tech In Asia, that the head-mounted display much tend to impair vision and tire your eyes easily. Instead, the device pairs with a smartphone or tablet and thereby provides you the kind of functionality you would get on the screen. With no screen, the Baidu Eye will last much longer and will sport a much lighter body.

The wearable tech also supports voice and gesture-based commands like expanding to zoom, or it may be circling an object in the field of view with your finger. For internet connectivity, it uses a Wi-Fi connection or mobile hotspot, rather than independently connecting to the internet like Google Glass does.

Since, this is not the final product shown during the Baidu World, company’s annual showcase conference event in Bejing. As company plans to integrate, features like social networking, gaming, as well as hands-free activities like taking photos/videos or answering calls, into their final product.

That’s not it. Company has also shown its interests in providing resources to the developers so that they can develop apps and supported services for Eye. Earlier, this wearable tech from Baidu was touted as the clone of the Google Glass. But now with its working prototype showcased recently, it looks-like company is not in the path to making it like Google Glass.

Though, Google Glass being the first smart advanced smart glasses; it sure has the advantage over Baidu Eye. While Samsung’s rumored Gear Blink rival has still not seen a day of light, making Baidu, the only viable competitor.

The Baidu Eye release date and pricing details are still unknown as the final product needs some additions, stated by the company. It will be interesting to see, how the final product comes out as the competition in the wearables arena heat up.
