CNN | Software developer Masshunter Software is working to bring Google Glass-like technology to smartphones and tablets, the company announced Tuesday.
“We are excited to be the first to bring MassHunter to the smartphone and tablet market,” Masshunter CEO Dan Molnar said in a blog post.
The company says its software will let people see the full map of the city they are currently in, as well as see where they are on a map.
MassHunter says its new application, called the Masshunter Toolkit, will let users download maps, turn on their phones’ camera and take pictures of streets, buildings and pedestrians.
The company is developing a Google Glass version that will be made available soon.
More than 2.3 million people have already signed up to be beta testers for MassHunter.
Molnar says MassHunter is a first for the smartphone market, and Google is “excited” to get in on the action.
Google Glass has a built-in camera, and it works in conjunction with a variety of other smart devices, such as Google Glasses earbuds and Google’s own Android Wear smartwatches.
