Lumus unveils its own Google Glass competitor

This HUD rival to Glass comes with an in-lens display

Looks like the wearable space is heating up even more. Lumus, better known for making military grade stuff than something for the man on the street, has decided to look at a different market.

Their latest product, the DK-40 dev kit looks more at home in well… a home rather than on the battlefield. In fact, it looks a lot like Google Glass. One thing does set it apart though - instead of projecting data to your peripheral vision, the right side of the DK-40 is a 640 x 480 see-through display.

It also comes with a 5-megapixel camera, motion sensor, and is powered by Android. You’ll have to wait a while before it hits the shelves though, as this set of eyewear is still in its development stages. You wouldn’t want it now anyway, since its battery life is just a measly 1 to 2 hours.

You can expect its debut (together with the SDK) over at CES 2014 but it’ll only likely hit shelves at the end of Q1 of 2014.
