Both companies have previously produced apps for the Google Glass wearable, but Twitter had withdrawn its support even before Google announced it was ending the Glass project in its current form.

Sony SmartEyeglass will be compatible with mobile devices running Android 4.1 or higher, and is designed to be used in concert with a smartphone or tablet.
