After the release of the Vuzix M100 a few days ago, another manufacturer is announcing its own smart glass. Lumus, which is an American company that specialises in the production of military-grade products for the US Air Force has just announced its DK-40 dev kit – a more consumer-friendly version of its professional series of personal displays.

The DK-40 is of course powered by Android and surprisingly looks a lot like Google Glass.  However, it uses a transparent display that doubles as the right lens of the glass. There’s also a 5MP camera, which when combined with the 640×480 pixel display of the device provides users with a true augmented reality experience.

The smart glass is still in its early stages of development, packing only a battery life of 1-2 hours. But according to Lumus, it doesn’t plan on mass-producing the DK-40 yet, instead it intends to promote the lens used on the DK-40 to OEMs and select developers. The device with its SDK is expected to debut at CES next year.
