A Silicon Vally start-up company called Meta is working on Augmented Reality glasses, similar to Google Glass, but with a couple of major differences.

I'd buy it but 2000 is way too much for my budget.

Def waaaay more stylish and classy than Google Glass, but the wire and price are a turn off. The advertisement was awesome, and I can only say that the long term future will be packing such an insane arsenal of tech to supply the worlds consumers, now of which past imaginations come to life. Woot for tech!

Does anyone think an Intel i5 processor and 4GB of RAM is an overkill for this kind of device?

This will be the future. I bet in 100 years these will be eye implants. Take pictures and make calls directly from your body. Or interact with almost anything such as turning a virtual car key or wiping your hand in front of a door to open it. My great grandkids will have to worry about bio implants; not if Apple will release a 5 inch phone.

Lol❕..I like to keep a open mind, and I do believe some of your ideas are cool, but it is kinda funny thinking about all that.

Conclusion: Priced too high, eco system not mature = cool innovation though

These should be called goggles not glasses. They appear to be at least an inch thick from face to lense. Can't wait to see how all of this wearable tech advances in the near future.

They should come with a red and white stick so you don't look odd running into everything, and everyone. I'd snowboard in these though.
