Now Ubuntu for eye­wear!

OpenSource For You - - FOSSBYTES -

You have seen Ubuntu on desk­tops and tele­vi­sions but now this open source plat­form is ven­tur­ing into an en­tirely new do­main -- the eye­wear seg­ment. Mak­ing an an­nounce­ment about this on its of cial web­site, Canon­i­cal termed this in­no­va­tion as a ‘Ground­break­ing face-mounted pro­duc­tiv­ity so­lu­tion’. This in­no­va­tion, based on Ubuntu, is set to re­place cum­ber­some PCS and smart­phones with a sin­gle, light­weight de­vice and will pro­vide lu­cra­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties for soft­ware ven­dors, op­ti­cians and eye­wear man­u­fac­tur­ers.

Com­ment­ing on the in­no­va­tion, the com­pany says, Minia­tur­i­sa­tion has come a long way. Back in the 60s, com­put­ers lled whole rooms. By the 0s, they could t on your desk­top. In the 0s we got used to car­ry­ing our PCS around and, in the last decade, the smart­phone has made pocket pro­duc­tiv­ity a daily re­al­ity for knowl­edge work­ers across the globe. Now, with Ubuntu for Eye­wear, Canon­i­cal in­tro­duces a new class of per­sonal pro­duc­tiv­ity de­vices, so un­ob­tru­sive that nei­ther you nor your co­work­ers need even know they are there.
