Optinvent is a technology hardware designer company that is working on a augmented reality and smart wearables like glasses.
Optinvent ORA is the smart glasses device that Optinvent is working on at the moment. The ORA feels fairly well built and has a number of design features that are intended to make it usable for all types of workers in various industries. ORA glasses have mounting points for prescription lenses. The Optinvent ORA is powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and features a very small-screen version of Google’s operating system. The device is controlled using the touchpad, which moves a cursor.
The glasses have an arm that moves up and down, which can place the display directly in the user’s eyeline or just below it for quick glances. What that “True AR” mode effectively amounts to is a tilting display, one that can sit just below your eye-level for a “dashboard view” of incoming messages and other notifications, or moved right into your field of vision if you plan on going full-RoboCop. Google’s Glass by comparison always places onscreen information above your eye-line.
Other specs include an eye-searing 3,000 nits brightness level, an ambient light sensor, a rechargeable battery good for between 4 and 8 hours of usage and a display that when positioned right in front of your eyes is the equivalent of having an 85-inch TV dangling off your face. The battery is said that will last three hours with intensive use or eight hours with typical use. The Optinvent ORA price starts at €699.
Optinvent is based in Rennes, France and Silicon Valley, United States.
