Hands on with the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses

Just yesterday we reported on the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses that will try to go toe-to-toe with Google Glass. The smart eye wear runs on Android, and will be released later this year for under $500. The video below is actually more like an interview, and it’s actually quite fascinating. As goofy as the beta versions of the M100′s look, the future of wearable computers is quite compelling. Make sure to stick through to the end of the video to see some really nice looking “smart” sunglasses.

Google Glass gets some Android-powered competition from Vuzix

It looks like the future is going to consist of wearing lots of funny looking technology on our bodies and everyone is joining the party. Today at CES, Vuzix showed off its own version of smart eye wear which will stand in direct competition to Google Glass. The irony here is that Vuzix is basing their eye wear off of Google’s Android software in order to directly compete with Google. The Vuzix’s M100 will connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth and house a small display that hovers over one eye. Vuzix is expecting to launch the product for $500 later this year, which is significantly cheaper and sooner than Google’s plans. Inside the M100′s you’ll find a WQVGA color display, an OMAP processor, 4GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 1080p camera all running atop Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

CruzerLite teases upcoming Nexus 4 case

If you’re not happy with the protection that the official bumper case provides for your all-glass Nexus 4, you may be excited to hear that popular case maker, CruzerLite, is gearing up to release their very own Nexus 4 case. The company leaked this teaser shot of what we can expect, and as you can see it’s definitely a design geared toward the Nexus crowd, with microchip details engraved on the back. It looks as though the case has cut outs for all the buttons as well, meaning you wont have to press your buttons through the rubber, which is always a burdensome process. Everything is looking good so far! We’ll have to wait for more details from CruzerLite for now, but hopefully they’ll be releasing the case soon. Clumsy people everywhere, rejoice!

Add Some Awesome Android Flare with the Andru Charger

So my fiancée thinks I’m obsessed. First it was the android figurine I bought; then the key chain followed; it continued with the mouse pad, and now it finally culminating with the Andru phone charger by Power by Gen I just bought. When I first saw this power charger I knew I had to buy it. I was first miffed by the $25 price tag however now that I’ve bit the bullet and own one of these I am perfectly okay in saying that it’s well worth the price. Seriously.
