When we think of the smart glasses phenomenon, we think of bizarre contraptions that help us to do all manner of ridiculous thing. Play games via a floating hologram in the air? Check. Get directions that only you can see? Check. Help you actually improve your vision which is, essentially, the entire point of glasses? Not so much a check. It seems that the act of improving one’s vision hasn’t...

It’s no secret that Oculus are uniquely positioned to utterly decimate the competition when these VR headsets start going head-to-head in the marketplace. Why? Well, they were first to market and have had years of research and development under their belts to ensure their product ships with the highest level of quality control. Also, uh, they are owned by Facebook who are worth approximately...

Google Glass is a real and it aint going away. Sure, it has its share of naysayers, saying something about “privacy” or “looking like an absolute dork in public.” But they can all go suck an egg because it’s not what Google Glass is now, it’s about what it represents for the future. This kind of tech is absolutely necessary to nudge society into an awesome dystopian...

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Once upon a time the biggest battle in wearable technology was that for supremacy over the smartwatch market. Sure, that battle still rages on, but now there is yet another skirmish. The battle for overlordship(new word?) of virtual reality goggles is on like a virtual Donkey Kong. Oculus may have been first out of the gate, and still market leader(if you...

There may be a time, coming very soon, when virtual reality becomes more important than, well, real reality. Real reality is filled with bills and long lines and stale slices of pizza. Virtual reality is filled with flying skateboards, talking gorillas and, uh, fresh slices of pizza. Like most sea changes, the children will lead the way. Their innocent hands clutched...

How long will it be before we get to quite literally share every second of our lives with other people? In short, how long will it be before the term “walk in another man’s shoes” actually means just checking out his live stream. Well, with AR-enabled eyeball hitting the market will full thrust, thanks to Google’s Glass, that future is practically...

Conventional wisdom dictates that Oculus and their stunning Rift virtual reality headset have already won the forthcoming VR war. They have the financial backing of Facebook behind them, after all. No other device gets close to having that kind of money behind them, not even Sony’s forthcoming device. However, conventional wisdom is wrong about half the time,...

Ah this modern world we live in. It seems that the more innovation we get, no matter how helpful it actually is, the more we get a co-existing set of problems. Our brains are taxed to their very limit with all of these social networks and screens to look at, day in and day out. Why it’s almost enough to give up the whole thing and go and live on a small organic...

The wild and wacky world of air travel seems like a great candidate for wearable technology. After all, when you are cruising thousands upon thousands of feet in the air at high velocities, you are gonna need all of the help you can get to make sure you don’t end up as an oddly colored splat in some remote jungle somewhere. There have been some rumblings recently...

Lately, there has been something of a small backlash against VR glasses. Mostly this rancor is based toward Google and their marvelous Glass device, however it could potentially be levied at any similar products. What would anyone have against some bona fide awesome wearable tech? Well, mostly it boils down to privacy concerns and the notion that one can be filming...
