One of Toshiba’s central novelties presented at CES 2015 will be “smart” glassesToshibaGlasses. The device is a pair of ordinary glasses with a small removable projector on the right arm. Unlike Google’s gadget, Toshiba Glass transmits the image from the projector to the glasses’ lens without using an additional prism. The new device is not a fully-fledged computer, but connects to a smartphone and serves as a kind of display for the information transmitted by the mobile device. “Smart glasses will help you to watch how many calories you burn during sport activities, tell you what ingredients to add to this or that dish or give you instructions on how to repair your car or replace the hard drive in your computer. Information from the device is broadcasted in the upper right corner of the lens, not disturbing the user to do their business. Toshiba Glass weighs only 42 grams so you can wear it all day long just like regular glasses.
No less impressive novelty at CES 2015 will be a prototype of a lifelike communication android with a realistic appearance. The developers gave it the ability to move smoothly and speak in sign language. Experts from the Shibaur Institute of Technology and aLab Inc. worked on the creation of a unique android. Toshiba helped develop unique control algorithms that make the robot-girl’s movements especially smooth and lifelike. Robot to be upgraded by the end of 2015 with learning to speak and recognize human speech. The unique development can find widespread use in the service industry – for example, to “work” as a caregiver in medical facilities or as a tour guide for tourists.
Toshiba will also be exhibiting its unique “Virtual fitting” system, which analyses a wearer’s appearance and helps them select clothing according to the range of available stores. The system is a large display, which broadcasts the user’s image as in a mirror , but with a superimposed 3D model of the selected items. This way, you can easily find the clothes you want without wasting time trying them on, and then buy the ones you like in your neighborhood store.
