Future glasses offer assistance at a glanceYes, we do know that Oakley is working on a pair of augmented reality glasses that will eventually compete with Google’s Project Glass, if the former is successful, and I am quite sure that Oakley is not the only company out there who thinks there is a huge market waiting to be tapped where augmented reality peripherals are concerned. In fact, here is a novel idea – new glasses and contact lenses that will offer a second sight to one’s vision with extra yet important information, without clouding one’s vision in the first place. Imagine a pair of contact lenses that is smart enough to monitor the status of your health. How about a pair of ski goggles which can detect just how fast you are moving down the slope? Such technology is definitely going to be fun to behold, but will it be cheap enough to appeal to the masses for the critical mass market?
