Be honest, you've been waiting for an affordable augmented reality
headset ever since Schwarzenegger rocked the robot vision Terminator 2
. And while $5,000 still seems like a lot for consumers to pay for a pair of glasses that let you see stuff that's not actually there, it's certainly cheaper than the sort of military-grade options currently available. Vuzix's Star 1200 feature motion sensors and a camera that track reality in order to augment it via 3D computer generated graphics. The headset is available for pre-order now and will start shipping in August, so you can finally get down to hunting and destroying all of the people who make fun of you for wearing funny looking glasses.
