    Apparently Oakley is working on Augmented reality glasses. Here's the article below from bloomberg.

    I wonder what frame they'd base them off of. Rejuvenate the Thump/ORokr line or build the tech into something existing like a Radar.

    If Oakley releases a usable technology pair that isn't more than a couple bills I'm in.

    No wonder Oakley was trying to cut costs on everything.

    Honestly I don't see the point in this, all the other electronics were basically failures.

    And don't forget the other major issue . . . .
    . . . . that “People get very particular when they put stuff on their face,”

    I'm not sure what OS they're intending on using...

    Well I don't know of I would want a pair of glasses like that right on my face. I generally try to keep electronics that emit wireless signals away from my face unless I'm making that quick phone call form my cell phone. Let's see what Oakley makes up

    I've been reading up on all this Augmented technology, and even though it may look extremely goofy & stupid, it'll probably catch on us some kind of fad. I mean, Google really hasn't let us down so far. I'm pretty psyched to see what they come out with!

    Can't resist posting this spoof. At least Oakley glasses should protect your eyes from the impact of the lamp-post...
