This is TipTalk, the smart watch strap that makes you Inspector Gadget

Smart strap upgrades for the analog watch you can't quite part with aren't new, but few let you pretend to be Inspector Gadget as well.

A new document shows Google Glass 2, or another iteration of the first, to look more like head-wrap than a pair of traditional glasses.

As Microsoft's goal, apparently, wasn't just to create a device, but a whole new category of devices, it should follow that a manufacturer like ASUS would jump aboard eventually. The ASUS headset wouldn't necessarily be called HoloLens - but it'd be very similar in implementation - it'd certainly be a headset, at least.
