These Augmented Reality Glasses Are James Bond-Worthy

Ever heard of Ralph Osterhout? He’s known as the real-life “Q”. He created underwater vehicles featured in two James Bond movies.

So instead of putting things on or in front of our imperfect eyeballs to correct and protect them, how about rethinking the screens we’re staring at? Researchers at Berkeley, MIT and Microsoft have developed a prototype that could one day make glasses or contacts obsolete — at least when you’re looking at your phone or computer.


A Simple Design Improvement Keeps Your Glasses' Arms Safe From Harm

Unless you stash them in a case when you’re not wearing them, the arms on your glasses are free to flop and flail about, increasing the risk of them getting bent or broken.

Sony Project Morpheus Hands-On: The Virtual Future Is Very Bright

When Sony announced its intentions to take Oculus Rift head-on, we were excited. The Rift (rightly) gets all of the attention and praise for its VR prowess, but a little competition would be good for the emerging technology.
