Just one month after Google suspended sales of its Glass smart eyewear, Sony is jumping in to take its place with SmartEyeglass. The Japanese electronics firm announced Tuesday that it is taking orders for a developer edition of its new wearable to be released March 10.

Selling in the U.S. for $840, the SmartEyeglass Developer Edition features camera-equipped and sensor-equipped eyewear that connects with a wire to a separate controller device. The controller, which supports near-field communication, includes a battery, speaker, microphone and touch sensor.
SmartEyeglass has the potential to be used in a wide range of scenarios, according to Sony. In addition to making it available to individual developers in the U.S., U.K., Japan and Germany, Sony will also take orders starting March 10 from customers in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Sweden.

By releasing the SmartEyeglass hardware along with an updated version of its software development kit, Sony is hoping that developers will find even more uses and develop even more apps for the device. The company said it envisions having SmartEyeglass ready for commercial sales to both consumers and enterprise customers in 2016.
