Ready to put on glasses

Seems like there's still some real engineering work before I am ready to put on any AR glasses.

Surely , Google Glass has created a lot of excitement among the develper community . but as a consumer , its actual usability is still not clear.

May be we have to wait for another 6 months to a year to see the actual applications rolling out.

This is really very nice collection of the similar applications, one can really have a nice incite of the developments going on in line with Google glass. This will really bring many new different applications of technologies then the generic uses.

I'm looking forward to seeing more targeted applications -- activity-related applications that enhance the participant's experience.

If EETimes is able to collect this many different application related to Glasses, I am sure that there will be many different applications will be in development worldwide, I don't think that you will have to wait too much to fulfil your expectations.

Thanks for the article Rick - a nice summary of the smart glasses innovation showcased at AWE2014. Having tried many of these products at the event over the last few days I agree that, in most cases, some engineering work remains. However the recent rate of progress in this space has been pretty impressive and, as an augmented reality software vendor, I have a good level of confidence that the wearable client devices are heading in the right direction.

Meanwhile, here's a review from Michael Barr of Google Glass:  he's not so enthused yet.

Oh it is actually a review of the explorer edition of Google glass; Google has not yet produced the final version of the product. This is only for the developers; but that too has many good features getting evolved, here it goes, click. It will still take a few months to come out with final version by Google.

What will be interesting to see is how Google reacts to the threat of being leap-frogged by other vendors releasing superior products to Glass (at least in its current form). Will they try to make further improvements, possibly at the risk of delaying the commercial release schedule for Glass? Will they try to accelerate the development of the rumoured binocular-vision edition of Glass? It will be fascinating to watch (no pun intended!).

How will all this work with those of us who need to wear glasses because we can't see very well? We should interview some optometrists.
