DIY Google Glass puts iOS in front of your eyes

Google may be beavering away on the last stages of Project Glass before the Explorer version arrives with developers, but meanwhile DIY wearable computers are springing up, some with Apple's iOS at their core.

HTC Proto pictured with global intent

There's a brand new Android device out there in an HTC factory somewhere called the "Proto", and it's just bursting at the joints to get out here to the global market.
