Telepathy Walker Smart Glasses Go Where Google Glass Failed

New smart glasses from Japan try to break into the market.

Japanese startup Telepathy Japan Inc. launched new smart glasses product named Telepathy Walker.

The first-person-perspective user interface enabled by augmented reality combined with voice commands, and directional and positional sensing, Telepathy Walker is designed to enhance everyday life by assisting with personal navigation, identifying local highlights and places of interest, and sharing the experience with others in ways that differ significantly from smartphones.

The company has launched a Kickstarter project offering the Telepathy Walker smart glasses for $299 for US, Canada, and Japan. The retail price after the Kickstarter campaign is supposed to be $699.

I have seen many weird Kickstarter videos, but the Telepathy Walker video is right up with the weirdest ones. It starts out normal, but then a Star Wars themed use case demonstration begins that hurts to watch. 

The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise $115,000 to enable the start up to enter mass production. Find out more on Kickstarter. So far the project raised close to $20,000.
