    Do you think Icis looks better than Google Glass? Would you wear them?

    Gotta love the Hipster styling on these things - they really scream "look at me, I'm totally a nerd"*. ;O;

    *Megatonne of sarcasm here

    To be fair, Google Glass is still more than double that price.

    To be fair, Google Glass doesn't have a consumer version out yet, the currently available Glass is a test version/devkit. The consumer version will be cheaper than the current version.


    Looking at the development pics for the Icis, the current prototype looks much better than the planned finished design.

    If you're going to use the La Forge name, there's a standard of coolness you have to uphold. They're nowhere close!

    Call me when this comes in visor form.

    To be fair, I meant the options that he has now.

    That prototype probably can't fit all the components, at this point of time.

    To be fair, that word is stupid.


    Alright, enough of that.

    But the Icis isn't out yet, it's not fair ( :ha: ) to compare the price to currently available options.
    When is it expected to launch anyway?

    You can still pre-order it for that price as an option. Apparently, the main product is to be release in January 2015. I guess you are right tho, since anything could happen to Google Glass from now to then.

    Icis has got funding else where and will do pre-orders another way.
