The idea is ahead of its time, im sure if this was done in 5-10 years it would work as you think it should but for now its just a tech demo with few real world applications. Its basically in the same book as motion controls, sounds cool, actually useless.

I think this article demonstrates that it's a little more than that. It may not be ready for prime time, but it's definitely closer than we think.

If they make a water proof ocean friendly version I'm all over this. No more gopro hemet or surfboard mount needed.

I wouldn't mind the whole "seven of nine" look of the design as it is right now, but getting it to integrate with regular sunglasses and prescription glasses is what will push this into mass adoption.

Hell; imagine when this is so "common place" that you get it integrated into your disposable contact lenses... The HW is all in your smart phone and your contact lens receives/displays the data right into your field of vision.

You got me; I'd totally buy it if it came on those frames.

This has probably been said before, but it uses a bone conduction mic so a crowded or noisy area isn't a problem.

These things look so sweet. I've been eagerly awaiting till I can buy them, and since I already have to wear glasses to see it will simply be like upgrading my specs!

I really wish it wasn't so asymmetrical.
