LET Glass smart specs use your bones to transmit audio, leaving your ears free

Feel it in your bones

Headphones are great – right up until you end up in a river because you were listening to Ed Sheeran on the sly, and didn’t hear someone screaming: “You’re about to ride your bike into a river, you idiot.” With LET Glass (from $119), you keep your ears free. This pair of smart specs – which can have polarised and prescription lenses installed – uses bone conduction to transmit audio to your inner ear, avoiding eardrum damage, helping you stay aware of your surroundings, and letting you listen to music without anyone knowing it. LET Glass has AI smarts, too, from feeding you weather forecasts first-thing to directions and calls via a smartphone. Just don’t give the game away by nodding to the beat when you’re supposed to be chatting with the in-laws.

I’m a regular contributor to Stuff magazine and Stuff.tv, covering apps, games, Apple kit, Android, Lego, retro gaming and other interesting oddities. I also pen opinion pieces when the editor lets me, getting all serious about accessibility and predicting when sentient AI smart cookware will take over the world, in a terrifying mix of Bake Off and Terminator.
