I must admit that, ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to be able to wear some kind of digital glasses that could superimpose any kind of digital information over the real world around us. Virtual Reality glasses were one such option, but until now it seemed there was always something wrong with them: too bulky, too expensive, not enough resolution...
But, maybe we're coming to a turning point and fulfilling that dream with these Vuzix STAR 1200.
Unlike other "virtual reality" glasses, these Vuzix show the digital image over the real workd image - without cheating through the use of digital cameras to capture your surroundings and feeding it back to its tiny screens.
I supposed these will still lack a wide area view, but... I'm hoping this means we're one step closer to those ideal digital glasses I've always dreamed about.
