Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses May Beat Google Glass To Market


The new Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses which have been designed along the lines of Google’s Project Glass wearable computer system, and were announced after Google revealed its new concept, might beat Google to market with its version of a wearable computers system equipped with a heads up display in front of your eye.

Both Google and Vuzix Corporation are still developing their wearable computer systems, but Vuzix has announced that they hope to launch their new eyewear in the second half of this year.
