Are these heads up display products yet another Google Glass clone?

These products look at first sight like yet another clone of Google Glasses. In fact they are much more.

They are not used to surf the web while walking or to provide an augmented reality experience. Their main users are the….vision impaired. This company had the great idea to use the Google glass technology to help the people who could not read due to a lack of vision. The Glasses read out loud for them! The camera records the text read, it is transmitted to a could based reading algorithm through wireless connectivity. The interpreted text is read out loud for the vision impaired to listen.

The BayLibre team loves this usage of heads up display product. A CES 2014 marvel.
