This year, the Indian government is gearing up to launch a national smart glasses initiative.
The initiative aims to make wearable tracking devices accessible to everyone, and it’s expected to include a number of smart glasses which will have an app on their screen that can connect to a smartphone to track the wearer’s location.
The project has been in the works for quite some time now, with the government announcing in April that it had selected several smart glasses companies and they were being evaluated for a partnership with the National Smart Glass Project (NSP).
The NSP is a consortium of industry and academia that aims to build smart glasses that will make people aware of their surroundings, and they’ve received an infusion of funds from the government.
According to reports, the NSP has secured $2 billion from the US government to build the smart glasses, and according to the NSS website, the consortium hopes to launch the first smart glasses in 2019.
The NSS has announced that they have raised $10 million in seed funding from the United States, as well as from Microsoft and Google.
The smart glasses will be made by the Israeli company, Lensar.
The company is expected to launch its smart glasses next year, and the project is currently in the development phase.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Lensars CEO Andrey Karpov told the news outlet that they were working on the smart eyeglas project, and that they hoped to start shipping smart glasses to consumers next year.
The Lensar smart glasses project is being led by a group of people from several countries, including India, China, Singapore, and Israel.
The team has reportedly received funding from Microsoft, which has pledged to provide a $1 billion investment to help fund the development of the smart lenses.
A few weeks ago, a report from Forbes claimed that Lensar’s smart glasses would feature a sensor that could detect motion and track a wearer’s position.
However, the company has not yet revealed any details on what the smart glass would do, and what features will it include.
In the meantime, it’s unclear what the future holds for the smart wearable glasses project, but one thing is for certain, we’re looking forward to the launch of these glasses soon.
