This rendering is what Meta wants augmented reality glasses like Google glass to look like.
Meron Gribetz, founder and CEO of Meta wants to build a version of Google Glass that is fashionable and people would be more comfortable wearing. The company’s basic mission is to create computerized glasses that are everything Google Glass is not — stylish, cool, and non-distracting.
While the above picture is a concept Meta is currently working on, check out what they have launching in April 2014. They're called Spaceglasses, and they have the potential to completely change the way we approach computing.
