Cool Glass One, China’s version of Google glass, goes on sale in the Chinese mainland on Saturday.
The smart glasses, manufactured by Alto Tech, a Bejing-based technology company, look almost identical to the original, but sell only at a third of its price, costing less than $500.
Like the original, Cool Glass allows people to text, make calls and surf the net by connecting to an Android device.
It also features a camera that can take photos and record 1080p HD video.
The wearable device can also be controlled by voice recognition, and is seen as China’s first smart glasses that take commands in the Chinese language.
Andy Ye, co-founder and CEO of Alto Tech, believes that Cool Glass One is better than the Google Glass in many ways, as it’s lighter and could allow users access to more apps in the Chinese mainland.
