Google Glass may still only be in pre-consumer phase, but Recon Instruments has found time to launch the fourth generation of its own head-up display system, the Snow2 sports wearable.

Borrowing the same display as the Jet, Snow2 delivers extreme-sports information like speed, jump airtime, and navigation.

Nokia “Head Up”: How Lumia’s future is sharper than Glass

Nokia “Head Up”: How Lumia’s future is sharper than Glass

Are wearables like Google Glass the inevitable future for smartphones? Not if you ask Nokia, where simply floating a display in your line of sight doesn't quite satisfy the self-imposed "head up" challenge its designers and engineers are facing. The evolution of Lumia isn't just bigger displays or faster chips, it's a new way of interacting with the digital world. SlashGear sat down with Jo Harlow, EVP of Smart Devices, Marco Ahtisaari, EVP of Design, and Stefan Pannenbecker, VP of Industrial Design at Mobile World Congress this week to talk "people versus robots", rolling back the clock on convergence, and how the Finns want to pry our eyes away from smartphone screens, even if we're looking at a Lumia.

They're calling their new device a head-mounted computer, with a bevy of integrated sensors and radios to help it along. Instead of acting like a more techy version of glasses like Google's Project Glass, the Golden-i is designed to actually fit over standard glasses or safety goggles giving it applications in all sorts of industrial capacities. Golden-i will make another trade show appearance at CTIA.

Lumus OE-31 optical engine revealed as smart glasses become reality

This week the folks at Lumus have revealed their newest technology embodied in any number of projected 3D display eyewear.
