Sony showed off its SmartEyeglass prototype -- dedicated glasses to deliver notifications. Though Sony officials say no specific purpose has been developed for the glasses, a hackathon was held at Wearables DevCon. The glasses work with an Android phone and connect over Bluetooth or WiFi.

The prototype has a monochrome screen and shows information in green over a pair of see-through lenses. It has a camera, GPS, and sensors, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, and force factor for measuring the force of movement.
Sony's device is operated by a wired controller and touchpad with navigation, power, and camera buttons, paired with an Android phone. Sony representatives at Wearables DevCon said the company is working on a software development kit based on the framework from its SmartWatch 2.
