Smart Glasses Systems: Smart glasses is similar to augmented reality displays except in most cases it represents a heads up micro display that precludes the view of the real world.
Some examples of Smart Glasses produced include:
From a health and safety perspective, wearing smart wear glasses is considered to be hands free but there is some debate about whether to operate motor vehicles while having them on.

Recon Jet Pro for workers.
The company developed smart glasses for ski goggles and translated their design into the latest Recon Jet implementation for other activities. The primary target market for the ReconJet is a cyclist for the ReconJet. The device fits and looks very nicely integrated into the attire associated with a road cyclist. The price of the ReconJet is much lower than the google glass.
