Not Even Investors Know What Google Glass Is For

swanzilla Re:If it really knew where it was... (496 comments)

If the thing had good enough heading and position information, it could overlay detailed information on the real world. But it's not that good. It's just a smartphone display.

swanzilla IOIO? (228 comments)

If you like Java, I'd suggest the IOIO and an Android device. You inherit the device's guts (gps, cellular antenna, speakers, wifi, gyro, color display) and can go nuts.
