I will have to see one in stores for myself before I buy it. I am also very concerned about battery life. how are the heads-up sunglasses coming along?

Wish it was a bit cheaper. Wish I NEEDED one! Cool product, but yes Jonathan, I also wonder when the retinal-scanning glasses are coming. That will be the start of The Mobile Augmented Reality Revolution (see all my previous posts)!

Oh, oh, I DO need one of these! For my biology class, I will wear a white T-shirt, turn the projecter vertical, and project an animation onto my front of all my innards working - heart pumping, blood flowing, food digesting - every disgusting detail. Does Microvision offer educational discounts?!
