China's Answer To Google Glass: 'Cool Glass One' Wearable For A Fraction The Price
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Google is about to be really flattered. A Chinese company has unveiled its answer to Google Glass, the tech giant's most recent foray into wearable technology, with Cool Glass One.
Dozens of people lined up to try Alto Tech's Cool Gall ONE
One thing that is drastically different is the price: Shanghai news blog Shanghaiist.com reported Cool Glass One will range from $300 to $500, far less than Google Glass, priced at $1,500.
Business Insider reported that besides the look of the product, the specs are pretty similar too. Cool Glass One features a touchpad on the side to allow users to physically control the device by swiping through the interface. The Cool Glass One camera can take photos and record videos at an impressive 1080p HD quality, compared with Google Glass' 720p. Unlike Google's option, which is compatible with both Android and iOS systems, Beijing Palo Alto Tech's version of the wearable can be used only with phones using Android operating systems
