Before you tune out because of the startup glasses' size, the company has downsized the bulky prototype it had at CES to the slimmer model, shown below in silver.

Pivot this

A seesawing motion moves the screen from the center of the eye to the bottom of the lens, and back again. This drops it out of the way to give you a fuller range of vision when you want it.

Will it have a camera?

Yes, it will have a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with video capture, right where you see the plastic nodule on this prototype.

Specs

This Google Glass rival will have many of the same features, including a touch pad area to control navigation. It'll cost much less, though, and focuses strongly on augmented reality, rather than just social updating and navigation.
