At this rate, anything wearable that comes out now will look cooler than Google Glass. Mini's latest concept is a much cooler-looking version, especially if you look like this model wearing it.
The facial hair helps.
Developed by BMW Designworks, they are intended to be worn all the time and are primarily used in the car.
It's like a heads-up display and cool looking glasses all in one.
Check out the specs its packing:
Destination entry for navigation and transfer to vehicle: Selecting destination points when outside the vehicle, then transferring them to the vehicle.
First Mile / Last Mile: Navigation display from the current location to the vehicle or from the vehicle to the final destination.
Head-up display functions: Display of speed, speed limits etc. in the eyewear so the information is in the driver's primary field of view, with data always shown in same place above steering wheel to make sure that no road users are concealed from sight.
Contact-analogue navigation and points of interest: Reality is enhanced by contact-analogue navigation arrows "on" the road, as well as display of points of interest along the route, such as open parking spaces. The driver´s attention can always stay focused on the traffic.
Messaging: A small icon is shown in the eyewear when a message is received. The SMS/message can then be read out by the car while driving for safety.
X-Ray View / transparent vehicle parts: A virtual view through parts of the vehicle (such as A-pillars and doors) serves to render external areas or objects concealed by the car visible.
Augmented Parking: This facilitates parking by projecting the images from a camera housed in the (farside) mirror into the eyewear. In this way, the distance from the curb can be clearly and easily ascertained.
For now, there aren't any plans made public about production, but who knows?
