At last year’s CES, Intel announced a tie-track of Oakley to build up smart eyewear, and on Tuesday it showed the fruits of the labor. It’s a nifty set of Oakley Sunglasses Outlet that coach you with voice commands when you run.
They’re called Radar Pace and they’ll continue sale late this year, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in his CES keynote. Imagine them like a Siri for athletes.
Begin with saying “Hey Radar, what’s my workout today,” and she’ll reply with such as “We’re going 20 miles and climbing 1800 feet.” (That’s if you’re an athlete like three-time Iron Man world champion Craig Alexander, who joined Krzanich on stage for the demonstration. Throughout us, it might be a lot more like three miles along with a hundred feet.)
Start your run, and you will then ask Radar questions like, “How’s my pace?” and she’ll inform you. She’ll also explain to you to pick up the pace if you’re lagging.
“I notice this can be too easy; push a bit harder,” she said at some time.
The glasses are suitable for runners and cyclists, Krzanich said.
But he didn’t say simply how much they will cost, and that he also didn’t explain on stage the way the technology works.
The glasses obviously have earplugs and a microphone, and there’s a very small computer on one of several arms. They’re somewhat like Google Glass in that sense, though Radar Pace looks much more like a 34dexkpky couple of sunglasses and a lot less dorky.
They probably use Intel’s Curie chip, which includes an on-board processor, accelerometer and Bluetooth radio. What wasn’t clear is when they must utilize a smartphone for that GPS, but we suspect that’s the situation, since Cheap Ray ban Sunglasses uses a lot of battery power.
The glasses were component of a keynote speech that focused heavily on sports and fitness, as Intel tries to get more of the chips into wearable devices. Presumably we’ll hear more details on pricing closer to their release.
