Lumus is offering a pair of light, wearable glasses that will display 1280 x 720 HD video and allow you to interact with the world via augmented reality.

Light pumps in the earpieces send and refract light down the lens. This moves the electronics away from the eyes, offering a lighter, more streamlined experience. The lenses are transparent and display an apparent 87-inch screen about ten feet away. Because each eye display works independently, you can also view 3D video.
