Kopin demonstrates its Golden-i Gen 2 wearable computer, follow-up to the Golden-i, at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston. Built as a three-ounce Bluetooth headset, the Golden-i Gen 2 features a 0.44-inch SVGA 800 x 600 full color LCD microdisplay that is able to produce a 15-inch virtual display.

The Golden-i Gen 2 is powered by TI OMAP3530 processor featuring an ARM Cortex-A8, high performance DSP and a graphics accelerator. It gets Nuance VoCon3200 speech recognition and Vocalizer text-to-speech software platforms, modified specifically for hands-free operation and the Hillcrest Labs FreeSpace 6-axis, solid state, head tracking and body gesture sensor.

The Kopin Golden-i Gen 2 is able to do real-time full-color D-1 high resolution (720 x 480p x 30 fps) streaming video over Bluetooth 2.0, from paired devices such as mobile phone, MID or notebook. It runs Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 OS. Production is expected to begin in 2010.
