MAD Glass

Description: The world of wearable augmented reality tech is getting more and more crowded, but that is a good thing as it takes more and more for a headset to stand out of the crowd. So has the MAD Glass got what it takes to stand out? They claim it is the world’s most advanced smart glass & ecosystem! But it does seem limited to just a few applications.

The biggest problem Google Glass had was the price and a lack of good software. If the MAD Glass team can get those 2 issues sorted then we are sure this will do very well indeed.

MAD Glass (2015)

HEADSET Review: As with so many other AR smart glasses, the Kickstarter reached its goal, only for no product to see the light of day. All that we know for sure is that only a handful of the devices were ever sent out (mostly to developers) and a lot of Kickstarter backers are very angry. Oddly their website still seems to be live, but no word on when anyone might expect their devices.
