It also comes with a processor, an accelerometer, a Bluetooth chip and electronic compass. The class A laser projects a 400 x 150 pixels monochrome image into the eye of the wearer.
Intel has said that the Vaunt can notify you of anyone’s birthday and can send other notifications from your phone to your glasses. It can also detect your current status and send suggestions like if you are in the kitchen, it will share a recipe.
