$230 Google Glass by Shenzhen Topsky, Android 4.3, Kopin 640×400, Ingenic

Posted by Charbax – October 15, 2015

Topsky is the only supplier of headmounted micro-display based devices that I have seen at Hong Kong tradeshows who may be able to provide a Google Glass like experience starting at $230 per unit for a 100-unit minimum order quantity. The only negative things about it is the Ingenic MIPS dual-core processor (instead of using Rockchip or Allwinner ARM solutions), and the software is "not yet" provided by Google, this doesn't run Google Glass UI, it doesn't run Android Wear UI, it runs Topsky's custom UI on top of Android, which looks good, but is not quite the same as having Google's support. What could happen though, is Google people watch this video and contact Topsky below, or maybe some hackers get it and improve it somehow. I look forward to try it out some more to see about the voice-control capabilities, if it hooks into Google Now yet or some other voice command Android app, and how in general it may or may not manage to use any other Android app that may work good for this user interface. My dream is still (since CeBIT 2005) to live-stream from my face and see a live chat from anyone watching about which questions to ask the people that I interview in 4K. Crucial for this "vision" is for affordable Google Glass type devices to become available. These need to be mass produced, the price can be lowered further, then the software platform should be open and fully supported by Google and by everyone! Let's make headmounted computing happen!

$49 Android Smartwatch platform on Intel/Rockchip RK6321 dual-core ARM Cortex-A5

Posted by Charbax – October 15, 2015

Rockchip shows the cheapest Android Smartwatch platform, can potentially run Android 5 Android Wear (depending on Google's approval) for now it's just running Android 4.4.4 with Rockchip's custom Android Smartwatch UI. This is an ARM Processor with an Intel logo on it! (which previously I filmed at To compete with MediaTek MT2601 it'll bring ultra-affordable Android Smartwatches to the mass market with built-in dual-SIM card slots with dual-standby possible depending on Smartwatch design (most of the Smartwatch designs will probably only have 1 SIM card slot) , with A-GPS, GPS, GLONASS, with 3G/2G quad-band, supports displays of up to FWVGA, can record 720p videos at 30fps or take 8megapixel pictures from the Smartwatch camera! Meizu is probably going to be one of the brands to release this Smartwatch platform at a good price. The smart tracking possibilities for Kids trackers, Old people smart heart monitoring, Advanced fitness watches and a whole Smartwatch category in general, Rockchip with Intel wants to have a big part in that!

To develop and bring this to market, distributors and brands can contact design houses who work with Rockchip to make this Smartwatch platform, one of them is T-Chip, the info is here:
