Out goes the traditional strap or bracelet on your Rolex, Panerai, or family heirloom, and in its place goes a Bluetooth replacement.

Patent suggests Google Glass 2 looks less dorky, more creepy

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. The form is a patent, and the patent has been filed this week with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

HoloLens may be the next smartphone: ASUS in talks with Microsoft

HoloLens may be the next smartphone: ASUS in talks with Microsoft

This week ASUS CEO Jonney Shih has confirmed talks between ASUS and Microsoft on creating an ASUS HoloLens-like device. This headset would likely run Windows Holographic, the same system that Microsoft's own HoloLens runs. 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.
