    Maybe I won't get lasik after all. I definitely hope they come in different styles than that ever-annoying hipster frame.

    And he's playing that uke backwards.

    Cool device. I'd like to check them out one day.


    Battery life could be a problem.

    Downside.... distracted driving.

    Your own personal HUD. :dunno:

    I don't use the one I have now.

    It does sound interesting.

    I wonder how heavy they would be. Batteries, frames, lenses, camera, wifi computer stuff, seems like a lot of stuff supported by your nose.

    I'm thinking it connects to a cell phone or has a base unit connected via wire/bluetooth. You bring up a good point.

    i wonder how much ambient light that would require? could you use it at night? would it make it look like your eyes glow to others?

    Hopefully these will interface with my Aimpoint well.

    Tin Foil Hat On: Also, does anyone else think this technology is semi-scary? With the "View Share" wouldn't it be possible for other people to hack it to see what you're up to, or the government to keep tabs on you?
