The Smart Cap is an innovatively pieced together augmented reality headset developed by young Indian inventor Arvin Sanjeev. The Smart Cap is essentially a grittier Google Glass developed using Linux, an open source Raspberry-Pi computer and voice recognition software. By using easily available, off-the-shelf components, Sanjeev created this impressive augmented reality headset.

The Smart Cap is by no means the most impressive augmented reality headset around, nor is it intended to be. While there's no question that it's possible to put together a better functioning augmented reality headset, what's impressive about the Smart Cap is that it can be created by hand at very low cost and, thanks to its Raspberry Pi infrastructure, can function as a real wearable computer.
