The Vaunt glasses from Intel, which is equipped with a head-up display for displaying notifications, is not developed further. Intel also closes its New Devices Group that works on such gadgets.

Intel has now confirmed to The Verge that the glasses are not on the market, not even for developers. The project has been completely stopped and Intel closes the underlying division, the New Devices Group, where such gadgets are being worked on. That department would consist of some two hundred employees, according to The Information .

The existence of the Vaunt glasses came out in February when The Verge received a demonstration of a prototype of the device. Back then, Intel said it plans to open the glasses to developers this year.

The glasses used a very weak laser to project an image of approximately 400×150 pixels onto a holographic reflector, which it then reflects on the retina of the wearer. As a result, the image would always be sharp.
