MetaPro AR glasses

metapro_1-580x322Shipping next June, the MetaPro glasses offer a significantly more immersive experience than Google Glass, but at a much higher cost…$3,000.   You’ll wear a small computer to wirelessly communicate with the glasses, which can display full 720p HD in a 40 degree field of view.  Potential applications for this all come down to software, which is a bit of a chicken and egg scenario.  Nevertheless, with more products like this emerging onto the markets, I expect the software side of things to pick up pace in 2014.  Meta claims their app store has 500+ apps, which is a great start even if you’re pessimistic and expect most of those to be junk.

The one drawback?  It has built in cameras.  I think people are still going to be uncomfortable around others who are wearing glasses that may or may not be recording everything you say.
