Not everyone is willing to wait for Google to release Glass, so Will Powell has taken the initiative and built his own.
While the Raspberry is very cheap — at a reasonable £25 — the Vuzix 1200 glasses are a bit more: US$5 000. That is a hell of a lot, but seeing these as a prototype, it’s possible that Raspberry Pi or another company could produce something along the same lines as Google, and possibly for cheaper than its US$1 500 asking price.
Will Powell has made several videos testing his new glasses out in different applications. Watch as his new device directly translates Spanish for him in a conversation.
