Why 2014 is the ‘year of smart glasses’ #WearableWednesday


Nice overview of some of the different upcoming smart eyewear products! On Computerworld:

In the technology press, every year is the year of this and the year of that. Much of this kind of prediction is based on expectations or wishful thinking and is essentially meaningless.

But the fact is that more than a dozen smart glass products are expected to ship in the first half of next year, ranging in price from $79 to $3,000.

Oh, and Google Glass will probably ship, too.

The hype around Google Glass has inspired a division of opinion. The people who want Google Glass and smart glasses are probably in the minority, with most people saying: “No way!”
