September 01, 2014
KOCHI, Sept. 1 -- It just took around two weeks of hard work and a paltry '4,800 for Arvind Sanjeev, the smart geek at tech domain, to make the prototype of Smart Cap, the wearable head mounted display device that catapulted him into the league of promising young entrepreneurs.The device offers the same functionalities of a Google Glass on a lesser scale like: voice command-based control, first person video streaming and head mounted display. "The project is not intended to be a clone of the Google Glass, instead an open tutorial on how people can make their own wearable or head-mounted display based gadgets," Arvind says. Smart Cap is fully an open DIY project entailing a wearable head mounted display. It runs on custom voice recognition software to support hands-free engagement. It can be tailored for use in helmets, first person video recording, and can mimic functionalities of a Google Glass but for under $80. It aims to intrigue people with the real wearable display technology and instructs them in detail about how they could build one of their own. The complete system runs on a raspberry pi with other peripherals like a 2.5" LCD screen, webcam, microphone, etc. At present, Arvind has no plans to commercialise the product as it is an open project and one of the projects on DIY Hacking.
