Mainstrrream audio AR sunglasses from Bose.

Hi all, I just stumbled across something that sounds incredibly interesting. Bose are releasing a pair of sunglasses in spring 2019, They seem to have bone conduction built into the frames and they have a 9 axis gyro built in so they know which way they are pointing, couple this with GPS from your bluetooth connected phone and they claim to provide custom audio experiences. I’ guessing this would be something like museum guided tours or historical info on heretage sites or something, just my guess. Anyway thats not the point. Seems Bose may have just accidentally invented one of the best blind navigation aids ever with the bonus of being able to play music/books/podcasts too. They are not crazy expensive either, $199. They are called Bose Frames.

Check them out and see what you think.
