Xiaomi Smart Glasses... They are glasses... that you can use without a phone... to do many of the things you used to do with a phone...Xiaomi Smart Glasses look just like regular glasses... Not like the goggles you see with many other augmented reality designs... They have speakers... a microphone... a camera... and a minature ARM processor running android...The design is ingenious... a minature display chip is built into the right arm... it's the size of a grain of rice... and it refracts light through the high tech lenses... So on one side you will have a... what appears to be huge... see through... augmented reality screen... You can read messages... phone numbers... even follow directions and read maps... This first iteration of the Xiaomi Smart Glasses reminds me of old computers... because the text and images only appear in green...One of the coolest features they demonstrated in the promo video... was the ability to read a menu in a foreign language... and the augmented view shows the text in english... or in the video it actually translated english into chinese... And I imagine these babies will be an awesome alternative to reading a teleprompter...There's no word on price yet... But Xiaomi are well know for selling products for great prices...youtu.be/I9bnmES7O74 ...

The BMW i Vision AMBY... Its an electric pushbike from BMW...AMBY look very similar to a regular pushbike... With 4 very small top bars insteadof one... and with a noticeable battery pack located close to where your knees will be... and a barely noticeable electric motor around the pedals... plus the handlebar stem and headset look like they have been completely taken away... Yeah... it looks like tomorrows design...And how's this... The drive system enables speeds of up to 25 km/h on cycle tracks... up to 45 km/h on city-centre roads... and up to 60 km/h on multi-lane roads and outside urban areas... although this is not legal in NSW... so of course you would only use this option on private property...To activate the electric assist... users have to constantly pedal... with modes available to the rider... stored in the app on a smartphone...So the bottom line is... this is one super high speed electric pushy... and whilst the price has not been published yet... I can only guess it may be reasonably high speed as well... ...
