Bosch's Technology Can Turn Any Glasses Into Smart Glasses

What users have with this technology is a pair of smart glasses that can display any content from a smartphone, all while offering a hands-free experience

Smart glasses available on the market nowadays have various issues. They have the kind of appearance that makes most people do not want to wear them in public. And their batteries are too weak too last for some hours.

This is where Bosch kicks in. Their ambition is to solve these two problems and make the glasses for a wide range of users. It has made some progress in this endeavor by developing a new approach to AR smart glasses.

What it offers is Light Drive, which works on any glasses and makes them “smart.”  It is by far the smallest and most compact solution of this kind on the market. Its weight is under 10 grams and it has a MEMS-based bundled light scanner to scans an HOE (short for holographic element).

What users have with this technology is a pair of smart glasses that can display any content from a smartphone, all while offering a hands-free experience. Lights are reflected in the retina with information like wake-up calls, alert, short messages, appointment reminders, and many more.

Even in daylight, these smart glasses are always clear enough for users to read. They will become completely transparent when turned off and can come with regular glasses.

Light Drive can sometimes be more convenient than smartwatches because it offers hands-free handling when it is hard to look at your wrist.

So far, it seems like Bosch will provide this technology to traditional manufacturers of eyewear. They will be able to develop interfaces independently and then choose the settings they feel fit.

Bosch has a plan to introduce the tech at CES 2020 event. The first commercial product with the tech is scheduled to be launched in 2021 with the name BML500P.
