What’s so exciting about it?
One of the first Indian companies to get into wearable technology and if successful, which would be pathbreaking. It is a simple glass and is one magnificent example of machine learning, augmented reality and predictive analysis.
Ixigo glasses come with pre-installed custom built operating system; can be charged by USB Type-C cable and the battery should last for almost a week. Loaded with FRAME 4790p quad core processor and good storage, it has a front camera of 12-megapixel placed at the center of the glasses.
If you try to look into any monument or place of historical significance through it, it displays relevant metadata on the glass screen. You could look at buildings and know which ones are hotels you can stay in and compare their rates; books or even vegetable. Seems like a sci-fi movie, right? While Google glasses could not make a mark in our minds, I pray that this Indian startup is recognised for it and it becomes commercially successful as well.
Ixigo has always been a leading travel search marketplace and with this Ixigo Glass, they enter the $20Bn wearable industry. They had previously raised funds from SAIF Partners, MakemyTrip Ltd,Micromax and Sequoia capital during 2017.
