Google Glass rival developed by Lenovo

Lenovo have revealed their own smart glass headset, a rival to Google Glass, with a few key differences

Lenovo has developed its own smart glass headset, revealed late last week, which will go into direct competition with Google Glass when released.

The two devices appear quite similar in design, but with a few vital differences.

Lenovo's headset (which currently has no name) includes a separate battery pack that sits on the wearer's neck, for example, and this reportedly means it boasts more power than Google's offering.

Moving forwards, Lenovo need partners to help develop the product ahead of a commercial release.

Their smart glasses are part of the NBD (New Bench) platform, as well as a larger move towards products made in accordance with the Internet of Things.

Senior vice president Chen Xudong told PC World: "Right now there are too many kinds of devices you can develop for the Internet of Things. It's too rich. Not one company can do it all.

"We hope to use Lenovo's advantages to combine with innovators. This platform can help them quickly start selling products, and create a supply chain for the market."

More details will reportedly be unveiled come October 2014.
