Israeli Startup Competing with Google Glass


Jewish Daily Forward reports Israeli startup Meta is set to take on Google Glass with its own model of augmented reality glasses, the Meta Pro, unveiled over the weekend.

Weighing in at just 180 grams and shaped like normal sunglasses, says Jewish Daily Forward, the new model is considerably more advanced than the company’s older model, with advanced graphic capabilities, a much larger display area and three cameras enabling three-dimensional filming in real time.

The Meta Pro is being offered on the company’s website at an advanced purchase price of $3,000 and is expected to hit the market next June. “It is aimed mainly at people who paid $1,500 to Google Glass in early release and were disappointed,” explains Meron Gribetz, the company’s founder, adds Jewish Daily Forward.
