The Japanese company has also designed the glasses using lightweight materials and has also kept its power consumption low. Its weight is below 30g and the included batteries can power it for about 8 hours.
Supporting the Bluetooth 2.1 technology, the glasses can be connected to smartphones or other devices. Other technologies include a built-in orientation sensor, which can expand the range of possible applications in combination with GPS.
The prototype is part of the company's research and development efforts in the imaging technology field. Commercialization of the glasses has not yet been decided, Olympus said.
