Meta 1 wearable: We talk “The Apple of AR” with founder Meron Gribetz

Meta may not be the first name you think of in wearables, but the $200k Kickstarter startup that wants to be the Apple of augmented reality isn't letting that hold it back. The project prompted dropped-jaws and skepticism in almost equal measure back in January, with its full-digital-overlay concept, and less than a year later the first hardware is almost ready to ship.

Talk of an Apple alternative to Pebble and other wearables has surged in the past week, with a 100-person team tipped to be collaborating on a curved glass digital timepiece that would work as a companion to your iPhone. However, the Cupertino smartwatch crew is unlikely to be alone in its second-screen ambitions, with Samsung likely also on the case.

The matchbox-sized gadget - which can track the movement of ten fingers individually, and 200x more accurately than kit like Microsoft's Kinect - will soon be integrated into Windows 8 PCs from ASUS, according to a new deal announced today. Microsoft's OS certainly loves fingers, but Apple's moves to blend the best of OS X and iOS arguably make it and Leap Motion more obvious bedfellows.

Samung’s iPhone-mocking ad named most viral tech ad of 2012

As December begins, the year starts coming to a close, and with that comes the "best of 2012" awards for pretty much everything. Video tracking service Visible Measures has rounded up the most popular tech ads of 2012, and surprisingly, Apple isn't in the top five. Even more surprising, is that Samsung owns three out of the top five spots on the list -- the number one ad being Samsung's iPhone-mocking commercial that touts "the next best thing is already here."
