Motorola, Oakley Eye Bluetooth Glasses
Complementing its announcement at CES that it will develop wearable Bluetooth devices with snowboard apparel maker Burton, Motorola has joined Oakley to create Bluetooth enabled eyewear. Although designs will be kept under wraps until mid-2005, the companies say users will be able to control electronic devices directly from their sunglasses.
Motorola demoed at CES its high-tech apparel with buttons for making and receiving calls, along with changing songs on a portable music player. "By teaming with Motorola, we're dramatically expanding the possibilities for our new electronics category," said Cos Lykos, Oakley's Vice President of Business Development. "Oakley's engineering team now has an expanded technology arsenal to develop new and innovative electronic products."
