  1. If you thought Google Glass looked obtrusive, wait until you get a load of Sony's hi-tech eyewear. It's called the SmartEyeglass Developer Edition SED-E1 and unlike the search giant's wireless solution, it's tethered to a "box" that houses many of...

    Good job Sony, you've just wasted more money on pointless products and will end up taking money out of your working products (the PS4) to fund garbage like this. Why do they keep doing this to themselves

If it can't look nice, just put it in my smartphone's display. Thanks.

    I love the idea, the interface, and the whole concept but even for a developer kit those things make me laugh. Just make it a little slimmer please Sony and figure out a better way than have that box attached to a cord like that with the next design.

    God, they look awful. Did it turn out looking like that because of the hardware limitations the designers had?
