Wireless headset with 15-inch display


Kopin® Corporation, the largest U.S. manufacturer of microdisplays for consumer, industrial and military applications, has introduced and demonstrated the Golden-iTM concept, a lightweight (3 oz) Bluetooth headset providing a 15-inch virtual PC display with a hands-free natural speech recognition interface for wireless remote control over an array of host devices including cellular phones, PCs, company networks and wireless systems. Golden-i readily accepts conventional user interface from any host device touch screen, keyboard or wireless mouse.

Running the 32-bit native, componentized, hard real-time Microsoft Windows® Embedded CE 6.0 R2 operating system, Golden-i is capable of remotely waking a PC from practically any location. After Golden-i establishes a Bluetooth, WiFi or cellular link through a host device, users will see their PC desktop screen on a 15-inch virtual display, offering full hands-free access to all PC applications, data files and services. When work is finished, the PC can be placed in hibernation with a single spoken command.

Golden-i is designed to provide spontaneous access to virtually any information around the globe. Golden-i provides users the ability to command and control wireless devices and networks by natural speech recognition. Leveraging the wireless devices and networks, Golden-i provides hands-free spontaneous access to all digital information, broadcast programming and Internet services, including real-time, full-color D-1 high resolution (720 x 480p x 30 fps) streaming video over industry standard Bluetooth 2.0 which was developed in partnership with BlueRadios, Inc..
