With the opportunity of Google Glass becoming more and more commonplace, people such as Omar Isaac with Hattrickwear are thinking of alternative solutions. The design features a reflecting prisms that allow people to place their phones underneath the brim of the hat, and have the same effect as Google Glasses.
Granted, the design is still bulky and it's clear that the person has a piece of technology strapped to their faces. However, it's great to see someone attempting to come up with an alternative (and at a much lower rate too). Perhaps people that it would be most useful for are those that already wear glasses, unless Google comes out with a specific design for those with sight issues.
Hopefully for Hattrickwear Google will sense some competition and either up their game or send over an offer.
