Leica is partnering with Panasonic and Sigma to collaborate on the L Mount Full Frame Alliance. There will be Cameras that use the L Mount system and compatible with Leica, Sigma and Panasonic lenses for it. Sigma will also make compatible cameras and lenses. APSC and full frame lenses will be compatible with L Mount systems. The new alliance provides greater cooperation, greater company specialization, and more choices for consumers to bring new choices for the full frame camera market.
Golden-i is preparing to revolutionize the world of adjustable/customizable life enhancing smart glasses, at its 8th Generation (I have filmed Golden-i prototype developments since 2011 here and here), the Golden-i team has reached this yet smallest Smart Glass implementation that works with USB Type-C Displayport phones (for now on slightly modified firmwares) to output the full potential of the Smart Phone right into the hands free Smart Glass computing user interface.
