JIN, which operates the eyeglass brand JINS, announced the glasses "JINS MEME" equipped with an electrooculography sensor at a venue in Tokyo on May 13th.
The electro-oculography sensor is a technology that measures the potential difference around the eye that accompanies eyeball movement and detects the movement of the line of sight. The movement of the line of sight is detected by the three sensors on the bridge and nose pad. Wearing "JINS MEME" allows you to operate your smartphone with just your line of sight and visualize your physical condition through an app. Applications are currently being developed for practical use, and are scheduled to be released around the spring of 2015.
"JINS MEME" is equipped with acceleration and angular velocity sensors. When used in the fitness scene, it measures not only the number of steps taken by catching the movement of the head, but also the body axis.
In addition, in the driving scene, the movement of the line of sight is detected, and the algorithm detects signs of drowsiness in advance. Visualize the fatigue index in the office scene.
At the presentation venue, I was able to actually wear "JINS MEME". The glasses didn't feel heavy, and I didn't feel any discomfort compared to normal glasses. When wearing, it is necessary to attach the bridge, nose pads, and temples to the skin. The spectacle lenses are the same as regular spectacles. It charges via micro USB and can be used continuously for about 8 hours.
