"An extra GPU that can be worn on the user's back?" These clowns are totally out of touch with reality: virtual, augmented, or otherwise!

Polhemus and others have been making military augmented-reality (AR) systems since 1975. These are helmet-mounted sights, where the augmentation is communicating a line-of-sight direction between the wearer and some system. Graphics are easy, since only five pixels are needed: A center pixel on the line-of-sight, and four surrounding pixels to prompt the wearer to turn their head.

15W?? Maybe 100 times less for everything , including screen and connectivity. No 1kg glasses will earn much adoption for outdoors usage and for indoors you are better off with the main GPU elsewhere.
