Intel recently announced smart safety glasses meant for use on assembly lines. The glasses were developed by PivotHead, a French company, for Airbus to better help assembly factory workers identify defective bolts and pull them from the line before leaving the factory. Relying on the Internet of Things to communicate with other applications around factories and make work easier, the glasses are powered by a new mini-computer called Joule that is smaller than a human thumb. The computer can record 4K video, communicate over Wi-Fi networks, and run an Intel RealSense camera, capturing regular photographs and 3D models. It has 4 GB of memory and can connect to other devices via USB 3.0 ports.
