The Wearable Future

  As stated in an earlier post, Optical Head Mounted Devices (OHMD's), that stood upon the shoulders of Google Glass, have been helping businesses streamline many mundane chores that could be done (even better) than by humans alone. Indeed, the wearable community is growing, and I knew that the instant I first heard a whisper of their presence.

Me inside the DAQRI Virtual Flight Attendant AR 4D Experience

Augmented Reality to me means uber-cool, helping industries in amazing ways, and although it's not expected to really be mass adopted until 2020, whoever isn't following this mind-blowing technology isn't looking toward the future.

Introducing DVF (Diane Von Furstenberg) – Made for Glass

Current Google Glass for Style & Rx's

I just returned from Google I/O 2014! I have a lot of fun info, photos, & news to share with you on #wearables, #googleglass, #throughglass (a very funny story there to come!) and more Google awesomeness. 25 days ago Engaget (where you will find more announcements from Google I/O 2014) announced "Google's first fashionable Glass frames are designed by Diane Von Furstenberg". Today I received an email from Google Glass News that there is a celebration (think "launch") July 28 & 29th 2014 at DVF stores in Boston, Dallas, LA, Miami, and New York where you can try them on, purchase frames and shades.

Below are the styles featured on the NET-A-PORTER site: We all know that Google isn't done designing and developing the features and look on … [Read more...]
