The Verizon Golden-i Is A Voice-Controlled AR Headset

Posted Jan 22, 2013

The Verizon Wireless Golden-i is a voice-controlled augmented reality headset that runs a customized version of Android.  The Golden-i supports Verizon’s 3G/4G/LTE network that works similarly to Google Glasses.  The Golden-i has a 14-megapixel camera and gesture control.  One of the supported voice commands is “open photos.”  The Photos app will open after that.  You can also zoom and crop the photo using voice commands.  The voice assistant service works in a way that is similar to Siri or Google Now.  Golden-i will be especially useful for emergency response teams or construction workers.  Verizon Golden-i will also be available for everyday consumers.  The Golden-i won’t arrive for at least another year and the SDK will arrive in about 6 months.  Below is a screenshot of Golden-i via BusinessInsider.
