Google Glass is Not the Only Augmented Reality Glasses in Town

Google Google Glass is Not the Only Augmented Reality Glasses in Town e-Reading Hardware Glass is expected to go on sale tomorrow, in a one day only sale. With a retail price of $1,500, it's a little out my price range but the same is not true for the Glass's cheaper competition.

Google's first wearable may be getting all the attention, but it's not the only game in town. There are nearly 3 dozen competitors to Google Glass either on the market or scheduled to be released in 2014, and many of them are a lot cheaper.

According a new site I just came across, everyone from the office equipment manufacturer Brother to Oakley (maker of sunglasses) has a pair of augmented reality glasses on the market. True, not all models are available in all markets (Sony's product is only available to cinemas), but the selection is still a lot broader than I had previously thought.

There are dozens of companies in this market, including Epson. Yes, the printer maker has a pair of AR glasses on the market; you can see the Moveria in the lead image.

  1. The Google Glass sale tomorrow isn’t a consumer launch – it’s a one-day public beta opt in. I can provide you with the email if you like.
