ION Glasses, a startup currently raising $60,000 on IndieGogo, sounds like the perfect smart eyewear.
Just like Google Glass, ION Glasses interacts with your smartphone and tablet.
ION Glasses comes in three models: regular, prescription, and sunglasses at a starting price of $99. The glasses feature buttons to control music volume, change, play music, control Powerpoint and KeyNote, and activate the camera on your smartphone. It also has a pretty cool radar function that will notify you if you start to move too far away from your smartphone.
What really differentiates ION Glasses from Google Glass is the design. And it doesn’t hurt that Ambit has Mac Funamizu, a world-class designer and futurist, on board.
