Add the Pedosa View in the In Development sectionEdit

I would suggest adding a product, the Pedosa View, which is a smart glass wearable designed for daily life use. It has been featured on printed magazines, newspapers and blogs. It has also achieved several international and regional awards.

It is developed by a 14-year-old entrepreneur and self-taught programmer from Hong Kong Jordan Fung Tsz Chun who was listed as the Top 12 Young Makers in the World in 2015 by Atmel. He was also described as the Tony Starck of Hong Kong, as well as the winner of international and regional awards.

Merge with Optical head-mounted display?Edit

I suggest that the Optical head-mounted display is merged with/into the Smartglasses as "smartglasses" or "smart glasses" the trending commercial term used for these type of wearable devices. The "smart" name for "smartglasses" comes from the same popular naming scheme usage as Smartphone, Smart TV, and Smartwatch. I mean who here serious believe that "optical head-mounted display" is going to come out a winner as the common used name in popular culture for these type of devices?

Support merge. Both articles need work but especially Optical head-mounted display, which reads like a list of everyone but Google Glass and is full of unencyclopedic minutiae. Regardless of primary title, both terms should be bold in the merged article, since one is the precise name and the other is colloquial. --Animalparty-- (talk) 00:03, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Support merge. The two articles largely overlap. I agree with Animalparty that both terms should be bold, as optical head-mounted display is a term used in academic research on on these devices. --Mark viking (talk) 11:26, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
Support merge. Makes total sense to me! Daylen (talk) 17:24, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose merge, I think they are somewhat different concepts. An "optical head-mounted display" is simply a type of display and the article can describe the technology used therein (e.g. optics). Whereas "smartglasses" describes an end-user product, incorporating a an OHMD, along with a computer and software to run on it. There are other kinds of products incorporating OHMDs, such as heads-up displays. However, I support splitting away smartglass-specific content from the optical head-mounted display article and making the distinction clearer. -- intgr [talk] 15:24, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
Oppose merge, agree with intgr that the smart glasses page is more about the specific (and constrained in form factor) products that have been created, whereas "optical head-mounted display" is a very vague super-set of smart glasses. Note also that some smart glasses, such as the Pivothead[1], do not contain any displays or optics, instead only relaying the video stream out from the user. The same is expected of the upcoming Snapchat "spectacles" [2]. As such, pulling the smart glasses content out of the optical head-mounted display article and putting it on this page makes sense.

Request edit on 5 May 2015Edit

Conflicted editor would like to add the following:

In the United States, Rhode Island Hospital's Emergency Department became the first Emergency Department to experiment with Google Glass via Pristine's HIPAA compliant solution for virtual tele dermatology consults. The virtual dermatology process is currently being trialed.[3]

The listing of AMA Xperteye is not unsourced it is referenced and the company and product are notable mentioned in several articles/RichardBond (talk) 00:45, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Its really low importance ?Edit

Augmented reality and related (this page) is a revolution, it will change a lot of things, surelly its not on low importance category. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:31, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Promotional content removedEdit

I have removed a large number of link spam (WP:EL) and unsourced (or self-sourced) promotional content. Information should be based on independent reliable sources. Entries in lists should only be included, when they have a Wikipedia article or some independent source as evidence for likely notability (WP:CSC). Editors with a conflict of interest should suggest changes here on the talkpage instead of editing the article themselves (WP:COI).

Its a page about a product category, is natural some images and content talking about products on this category, by the way you dont removed all images, there is yet "promotional content" about google glass and eyeTap that you keep, do you have something against the another products ? Today (2019) surelly the most advanced are VuzixBlade and Hololens but they images are forbidden here. (talk) 11:28, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

I have nothing against either products. And I agree with you on one point: the captions of the first 2 images should probably be improved aswell. But existing flaws and minor problems in a work in progress by volunteers do not justify the indiscriminate mass addition of yet more promotional content. Also, please read WP:COI about editing Wikipedia with a possible conflict of interest. GermanJoe (talk) 12:47, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
