What revolutionary computer novelty did the manufacturer prepare for release? SPACE LUMINA

We are witnessing the advent of a new computer era, the era of the so-called wearable technology. There is a super-miniaturization of computer devices. At the same time, the list of their functions is expanding, the speed of computing processes is increasing, due to cloud technologies it is possible to store files of especially large sizes and work with these files from anywhere in the world.

Exactly four years ago, in April 2011, the still little-known, but very ambitious network company WOR (L) D GLOBAL NETWORK was created. The company plans to develop existing computer technologies to the most advanced level. There are no precedents, this is the first network company in the world – a developer and manufacturer of high information technologies! In December 2014, in Dubai, WOR (L) D GN introduced its latest revolutionary development in the field of wearable technology, called Space Computer. The system unit with a solid-state memory, the size of a pack of cigarettes, was a full-fledged computer with an eight-core processor, running the Android 4.4 operating system. Instead of the usual monitor, the system was equipped with LUMINA glasses, allowing the user to see the voiced stereo image in space directly in front of them in the form of a large translucent screen – a sort of virtual display with high image quality. By the way, one of the participants in the development was the Ophthalmological Institute, which examined the safety of using glasses for users’ eyesight. Such an unusual solution looked very attractive and at the same time fantastic. The Space Computer + glasses-display kit was a full-fledged, ultra-compact and at the same time the lightest personal computer that could be worn in breast pockets of clothes. This system was controlled by gestures, voice and touch. For typing and working in editors, the system was supplemented by a small-sized, but quite convenient keyboard with a touch pad. During the time that has passed since the presentation of the device in Dubai, the company WOR (L) D GN decided to improve the LUMINA display glasses, turning them into a standalone PC. Having rapidly introduced this improvement, the company already at the end of February 2015 demonstrated in Kazan the latest independent device – SPACE LUMINA computer glasses. According to the company, the computer glasses are equipped with an Octacore octa-core processor with 3 GB RAM and a 32 GB solid-state memory block expandable to 64 GB. As a result, a revolutionary, unprecedented device with a virtual 3D screen appeared. At the same time, not only the functions of an ordinary laptop are realized, but also the functions of a 13-megapixel camera, video camera, tablet, smartphone, TV, etc. You can watch interesting TV shows, any video material on the road, from entertainment to documentary films and on the road training videos. You can listen to the radio, your favorite music, play video games, make a phone call. You can finally do your usual work, being in your own virtual office. The technologies used in the manufacture of SPACE LUMINA, allowed to deliver the result on the brink of fiction. This is a completely new word in computer manufacturing. It’s like the first flight into virtual space, like going out into space! With the release and start of sales of SPACE LUMINA computer glasses, the new computer era begins. Everyone will now have to learn to use the new products, master the management of the latest completely unusual technologies. The device includes: 1) directly glasses-computer SPACE LUMINA weighing 135 grams; 2) additional headphones that connect when they do not want to be distracted by external sounds; 3) a stylish small-sized keyboard with a touch pad; 4) an external battery, which is used as an additional energy source after discharging the main battery, withstanding 3 hours of continuous operation; 5) special connecting cable. Recall, when the mass production of the first smartphones began, we could watch people walking and talking aloud, as if with ourselves. At first they were mistaken for not quite mentally healthy individuals. Then the people got used to it and stopped paying attention to them. Now it will be even more interesting. On the streets there will be people in dark glasses who can not only talk, but also make strange actions, waving their hands. At first, grandmothers will shy away from them. Over time, get used to. And here is the news of the day. On its fourth anniversary, WOR (L) D GLOBAL NETWORK finally announced the first sales of its SPACE LUMINA computer glasses. A new computer era has come!
