Quote "

If you’re a little disappointed at the limited feature set of Google’s Project Glass, there’s a new pair of glasses that might bring all your augmented reality dreams to life. A company called Meta is building a fully hackable headset, complete with visual overlays and gesture detection. Even more exciting, the company has just announced that Steve Mann, a pioneer in wearable computing technology, is joining the team as Chief Scientist.

Meta blew past their Kickstarter goal of $100,000 in five days. Developer kits quickly sold out in the $550 and $650 pledge tier, which is less than half the price of the $1500 Project Glass Explorer Edition. The Meta developer kit includes see-through augmented reality glasses, a depth camera and a software developer’s kit, which includes sample applications and documentation. Meta works with Unity3D, the same graphics rendering engine supported by Oculus Rift, allowing users to pick up and manipulate their own 3D digital objects."

Don't Be Rude, Adopt Wearables at Your Workplace

Don't Be Rude, Adopt Wearables at Your Workplace | Google Glass, wearable computing, wearable interface | Scoop.it
After just a few weeks using a smartwatch, Michael DeFranco weighs in on the benefits he's seen by reducing the cultural "filler" that the mobile device has become. Not only are wearables a benefit to one's health, they are also a huge benefit to relationship and personal skills as well as helping to retain mobile phone battery life for when the most important needs surface.
