Vuzix’s Wrap 1200AR Glasses = 3D Augmented reality for $1,499

First Vuzix shifted to a more Google Glass-esque set of smart glasses at CES in January, but now it looks like it's not about to abandon the more traditional wrap-around headsets it's been producing on an annual basis. The company's latest product is the Wrap 1200AR, which is a lot like its cousin the: Wrap 1200VR headset, but with a focus on augmented reality instead of virtual reality. That means you'll get two (VGA) cameras situated on the front to capture stereoscopic video of your surroundings, along with a pair of displays (852 x 480 each) to view that video -- augmented or otherwise -- in 3D. As with the Wrap 1200VR, the glasses also come fitted with head-tracking technology, however, they don't come cheap. These will set you back a hefty $1,499, and are available to purchase now now.
