Golden-i 3.8 Can be an Ultimate Emergency Tool

February 14, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Golden-i Wireless Headset (3.8 or Gen 3.8) outed at CES 2013 at the Verizon Wireless booth is one device that amazes us.. Designed by Kopin Corporation to function on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the Gen 3.8 headset is the lightest Golden-i headset to date, weighing 4.5 ounces in its lightest configuration.

So what makes this one special? Is it the processing power, is it the live video uploading facility or is it the portability aspect? Well, for starters, every single thing about this device makes it aptly crafted for all types of situations ranging from an emergency help situation to a high class business conference.

It enables users to access virtually any information in any working environment and is aimed at improving productivity, efficiency and safety in the light industrial sector.


The Golden-i devices combine a speech controlled user interface and head-tracking functionality, thus enabling the user to carry out common computer functions and keep their hands free.

These devices come pre-loaded with a number of Gi-OS applications like E-mail Center, Web Browser and File Explorer. Golden-i headset computers have Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi and USB connectivity with a near-eye heads-up display and near-ear speaker. With wireless connectivity, the Golden-i 3.8 is capable of streaming HD video to a remote adviser, again, a great feature for emergency services.

The Golden-i 3.8 headset has been developed solely for satisfying the purpose of providing support and to guide the user at any moment without a halt. The user can control multiple independent devices or networks simultaneously including PCs, mobile phones and company servers – in more than 38 languages.


Golden-i headsets also feature a digital compass and GPS, 3D graphics accelerators and a 18650 Li-ion battery that will last 8+ hours. Thanks to the Golden-i built-in 14MP camera the user can take still images and record HD video.

Kopin has also integrated developed an additional infrared addon geared towards emergency service responders. The infrared add-on will make the headset capable of both night vision and thermal vision, both of which would be incredibly useful in a variety of emergency situations. What more do you want?
