Microsoft-Borg Wearable Windows / Smartphone Eye Display

Kopin makes advanced night vision goggles and thermal weapon sights for the U.S. Army, but they’ll soon be releasing a wearable Windows/smartphone eye display!

Imagine your smartphone feeding information to a virtual 15-inch Microsoft Windows PC display that sits in front of one eye, just beneath your line of sight. You speak commands using hands-free speech recognition to control both wireless access to the internet and your phone. (An adjustable speaker sits by your right ear, and there’s a snap-on wireless webcam for video conferencing.)

The device can also remotely wake your Windows PC using a Bluetooth, WiFi, or cellular link, and then offer hands-free access to PC applications. (When work is done, the PC may be placed in hibernation with a single spoken command.)

It’s expected to retail near $2,500 – running Windows CE with an 8-hour battery – and could challenge the iPhone.

    when they actually project the display in the lens of a pair of glasses I can see this taking off,
    as it is only the nerdiest of the nerds would walk around like this .

    ehh, I’m holding out until there’s something I can jack directly into my cerebal cortex.
