Vuzix Blade Review:

Okay, so the Vuzix blade is not the best-looking pair of glasses. It’s a reminder of Google glass and we all know how it ended. This doesn’t, however, take away anything from this glasses functionality.

This is not just a pair of smart glass, it’s an AR-enabled pair of glasses. Exactly, the future is here now. It’s a neat concept if you ask me, imagine being able to see directions on your glasses to wear you are going, send texts with your glasses perhaps with a few blink of the eyes and of course, read your messages, that’s the idea behind AR glasses, we are not totally there yet, but we’ll get there.

Google Smart Glasses Review:

This piece of work looks like something from a sci-fi movie, and not surprisingly lots of tech geeks jumped on it at its first introduction. Google didn’t make the first smart glasses however they’ve been very instrumental in popularizing the technology.

Initially, it was only available for a select few, guys in tech and other developers. This was way back in 2013, that product was called the Google Explorer. However it didn’t do so well, first was for design issues, it looked very geeky and not everyone is a geek. It spent only 18 months and it had to be taken off the market. The Google Glass Explorer Edition XE V2 is a higher improved version of the first Google glass. It comes with 2G Ram for faster image processing.

It comes with hands-free picture taking. You can do this by voice activation, you can also take videos and surf the internet all while having your hands free. You can also instruct the glass to upload it to your social media while attaching captions all with voice commands.

This Google glass comes with a tweak in the form factor; therefore you can add prescription lenses to your Google glasses and still wear them.

KKcite G1 Bone Conduction Glasses Review:

This is like a many in one kind of glass. So it comes with a polarized screen to help reduce glare so that you can enjoy a walk in the sun. It also comes with Bluetooth 4.0, which you can use to connect to your phone (Apple/Android) or any other music playing device. Now this particular feature, that is the music playing feature for me is the most exciting thing about this sunshade.

Instead of earphones for enjoying music, you have different technology. It is called bone conduction. So basically here’s how this works; instead of earphones with the music playing directly into your ear, you have bone conduction transducers. It’s on the handle of the glasses.

The transducer makes contact with your head via the glasses, and when music is played you hear the music via conduction or vibration. The music gets conducted from the bone to the auditory nerve.

The design of the glass is such that you can change the lens to prescription lenses or any other type if you so desire.
