Smart glasses have yet to break into the mainstream. Google had several years ago attempted to bring smart glasses to the mainstream with the Google Glass, but we all know how that turned out. However what was interesting is that despite it failing to become a hit with consumers, it actually proved to be a hit in the enterprise sector.
Vuzix unveiled its Blade augmented reality smart glasses at the Consumer Electronics Show last year. We haven’t heard much about the device since then and some might have relegated it to the bin that’s full of devices that get shown at CES but don’t materialize.

When Google Glass was first announced, it seemed like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. There was a lot of hype surrounding the headset, but yet for some reason it never quite took. However in its wake of the program shutting down, it actually found a new lease on life and started gaining popularity in the enterprise sector.
