the glasses produced by ION eyewear also incorporate two buttons that make it possible to operate the smartphone or tablet remotely and thus take pictures, activate voice and video recorders or play or pause music. the WeON glasses have been developed as an open source design, to allow developers the adapt existing apps to the smart device.
