Immersive Fun With the Android Powered Sensics Smart Googles

This pretty much goes without saying but there are a LOT of nifty gadgets and devices on display at CES every year. Some companies elect to hire attractive, scantily-clad booth babes to gather attention, while others just make products that look like this. When you are walking around the exhibition floor of CES, it's hard to miss a gigantic helmet-like device like this one.

It may be helmet-sized, but this product is actually Sensics' head-tracking 3D "Smart Goggles". It's just in its prototype stages, but guests of CES were able to try out a virtual demo on the floor that had them crushing buildings in a virtual world in an epic Godzilla-like manner. The impressive thing about Sensics' Smart Goggles is that everything runs on the headset itself, which would probably explain its bulky size.

Equipped with a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor and multiple cameras, the Android 4.0-powered Smart Goggles scan the environment and react accordingly to just about any movement you make: including spinning, jumping, walking, turning and tilting. Although the device looks to be quite heavy, it isn't exactly a huge strain to have it on your head, though we would imagine several hours of Smart Goggles immersion could lead to some neck strain.

We still don't know too much about the device, but if the building crushing demo at CES taught us anything, it's that there is a lot of potential for Sensics' Smart Goggles. The company is confident that future software and hardware updates will lead to an even more immersive gaming experience. For more details and news, head on over to Sensics product page here.
