The Sony SmartEyeglass Developer Edition
Sony featured their new SmartEyeglasses at CES. I gave them a try and was impressed by the very clear prescription lenses, which are much lighter in weight than the Epson glasses. Designed by Rochester Optical, their hologram optics enable augmented reality experiences.
