The innovative design is equipped with an easily accessible button located at the side of the eyewear. Pressing the button once enables the user to speak to a digital assistant in her preferred language. The assistant can respond to a number of preset requests, including “How can I get to the library?”; “Louder!”; “Call Katherine for me.”; and “Tell me the major news today.”
If the user becomes lost, she can simply ask the digital assistant "How do I get home?". In response, the assistant will provide real-time step-by-step directions to guide the user home using the eyewear’s built-in GPS.
For more complex inquiries, the user can simply ask the digital assistant to connect her to a live professional operator. Or, by pressing the button more than once, the user can connect directly to the operator at any time, without going through the digital assistant. The operator can, if necessary, soothe the user, provide more personal help, and answer more difficult questions. The operator can also connect the user to family and friends, caregivers, or emergency services, as the particular situation requires.
