So, let's back up -- and unfold this the right way around.
There's this company called Meta, that's creating some augmented reality glasses. Oh, check it out. There we are in a poster they have in their office -- apparently showing suppliers. (this only just barely blinked by in a Robert Scoble live video.) So far, not such a big deal. This could be interesting though. (The Meta Connection)
Then, an alert blog viewer sees this comparison. That's Microvision's NOMAD on the right in the picture below. ( Alert Reader, Meta and Nomad )
And the Meta Glasses in the Video Below. They look awfully similar, don't they? So, the two bits of information we have here -- they make me pretty confident that we're in the META device. Other things that I've seen about the way each works supports the theory that MicroVision is in there. Even more interesting.
Now, if you watch Robert Scoble's videos, he's usually calm and relaxed. When he sees something he'll say "wow, that's really cool." He's used to seeing really interesting new tech and sharing it with the rest of us. He's gotten a good reputation doing it, and has talked to a lot of movers and shakers in the tech world.
His reaction to what you have seen above is below. (Before he could say anything about it. Why are we excited about Meta? He sums it up.)
Look at it on the home page of the Meta website where they have a countdown clock.... with not much time left on the clock.
Augmented Reality decompression.
