Not really a body augmentation topic, but another step towards the future I want to live in is the concept of AR glasses. I’ve been trying to get my work to buy me a Hololens, but in the meantime, I was super pumped for the much more practical consumer product, Focals by North. They were a pair of smart glasses that released last year and according to reviewers, were pretty decent. Basically, they put a smartwatch interface on your glasses. Well, they were planning a release of a second-gen product, but Google acquired them and killed the project. I was pretty disappointed about that. Now it looks like the only consumer-focused AR face wear tech coming out is Apple’s rumored smart glasses. Now I’ve been a hardcore Android fan for a long time, but honestly, I’d consider switching for smart glasses. What are your guy’s thoughts on smart glasses?
