Auctify Specs Smart Glasses Review: Introduced today on Indiegogo, Auctify Specs features a built-in camera that keeps track of what you’re looking at and sends that information to an app. In principle, you might then see that in the afternoons, you spend a little too much time on Twitter or, for example, get overwhelmed by the relentless barrage of Slack warnings. (That is if the Specs app is not a distraction by itself.)
Set up an LED and audible cue if you want Specs to keep you on track while you’re doing something that prevents you from the task at hand.
“Specs extract live information using our built-in image sensor, accelerometer, and pulse oximeter. This data is then sent to your phone over Bluetooth, where it is processed by our machine learning models,” Auctify says. “The raw data is then immediately discarded afterwards to protect your privacy.
Our ML models classify the data into one of 50 types of common activities (ie. watching TV, eating, reading, etc). As we further develop our models, we’ll be able to add more activities to this list.”
Specs can also act as a headset, according to Auctify, and lets you make calls and listen to music. Active users can even track their heart rate and the steps they take throughout the day.
