Oakley already brought us nerdy MP3 sunglasses years ago. Now Oakley Augmented Reality Glasses are next.
Google created quite a buzz with the Google Glass augmented reality glasses including getting ridiculed by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. Now Oakley says that they are also working on augmented reality glasses according to Bloomberg. Oakley has a history of trying to make sunglasses gadgets. Remember the Oakley Thumb MP3 sunglasses?
Oakley is supposed to target first sports athletes, but the company has not unveiled anything specific. Oakley is supposedly working on HMDs since over 15 years and has over 600 patents. So good luck Google on not getting sued by Oakley in case you really bring Google Glasses to the market. I still have my doubts that these glasses will be productized.
