Recon Instruments Recon-Zeal Transcend SPPX & SPX GPS Goggles Now Available to Order

There's been plenty of concepts in the past that showcase how GPS can be integrated into our every day life, without having to hold some kind of navigational unit in our hands, or even our phones. And while concepts are all well and good, especially considering many of them include plenty of advanced, almost futuristic technology, we're more exciting to see companies actually release something we can use now. Recon Instruments has just made their Recon-Zeal Transcend goggles available to order, in two variations, featuring GPS-based information in the first head-mounted display.

Kraken 3D Goggles Bring Steampunk Design to the Theaters

Over the years, you've probably been able to discern that we have a natural fondness for steampunk. We just can't get enough of it. And, we especially love when designs take on the popular trends in tech. Like, for example, the growing need to see things in 3D. There's no stopping it, so we might as well embrace it.

Myvu Crystal 701 video goggles: deceptively appealing?

Myvu Crystal 701 video goggles: deceptively appealing?

Let's be blunt, you'd have to be a brave person (or entirely lacking in self-awareness) to wear these out in public.  Yet after reviewing the Myvu Crystal 701 video glasses, Gear Diary's Dan Cohen seems surprisingly impressed.  Promising the effect of a 4:3 aspect display viewed from 2m at 640 x 480 VGA resolution, the 701 glasses hook up to standard AV connections or, in Dan's case, your iPod to stop you from squinting at the relatively tiny screen.

DIY Batgoggles teach cheap echo-location

DIY Batgoggles teach cheap echo-location

These DIY batgoggles may have a well-intentioned purpose - to teach the principles of echo-location to kids visiting a science center - but they also could make midnight paintballing a whole lot more interesting (and/or painful).  Bleeping angrily whenever an object or person is in front of you, they're part of Suneth S. Attygalle's "Dynamic User-centered Research and Design" project.  Echo-location relies on bouncing high-pitched sounds off of objects in your path, measuring the time it takes for the sounds to return (or the frequency they return at) to calculate how close the object is.

Sony display module aims to make any eyewear smart

Sony display module aims to make any eyewear smart

Smart glasses, while fancy and interesting, have the peculiar problem of usually being ugly, if not hard to personalize. Well, that and they could be used as instruments to invade privacy. Without giving up on the entire smart eyepiece category, Sony is trying to take a different spin on the wearable. Instead of a complete smart glass like Google Glass, Sony is developing a standalone display module instead, one that can be attached to any fashionable eyewear of your choosing and can even be used without a smartphone.
