hopefully I will be able to test one out somewhere but at these price points I could never jusify it. Maybe google Glass 4... Maybe...
I see these devices being like Bluetooth headsets really. Think about this if all cars/vehicles other than passenger carrying ones auto disable hand held devices and having a bluetooth ear piece and or external method of using a smart phone becomes law everywhere as it already has in many states it enhances the market penetration for any device like this automatically. The throw on the cool factor etc for added market it is enhanced as well. These things have a market and there not even available yet. I bet by #3 if not #2 release of these devices they will be more easily affordable. in three years getting on your computer will be putting on your bluetooth 5 headset which hooks to your octuple core smart phone/device and looking at a virtual 60" display!
Vuzix showed these in action at CES in Las Vegas. The video display was sharp and clear and looked about the same as my iPhone display held at a typical 12" to 14" distance. They said it would ship this summer at under $500. I have signed up for their SDK and received my SDK software already and pre-production hardware comes later. Their SDK costs $999 - a lot less than Googles $1500 which is not shipping yet nor have they even announced a spec for the product or a SDK ship date.
