I’m a movie buff and would do anything to watch a good movie – and if my passion doesn’t disturb others, even better. In my search for unobtrusive movie watching, I came across a head mounted display in a Singapore electronics market a couple of years ago. The unit was cool and served the purpose but it weighed a couple of lbs., not comfortable for long time usage and it made me look like someone straight out of Star Trek.
It appears as though the age of head mounted display has come. Google glass was the first to announce it and now there are many others doing so. A team of Italian designers have come up with a competitor to Google Glass – which arguably is, cheaper, sexier and a lighter version. It works on Bluetooth and connects to your mobile to provide you a display of incoming text messages, notifications etc.,
