Don’t wait, you only have 4 more days to get “The Worlds Most Advanced Wearble Computer” at a discount. The Recon Jet is set to start shipping in December. Personally, I like the design of the Recon Jet much better than Google Glass. I looks much more balanced and robust. I would feel safe wearing the Recon Jet while hiking or running. I can’t say the same for Google Glass.
Serious Wonder readers are very familiar with the idea of wearable technologies. However, for those of you who are new to the wearable technology tsunami that is emerging check out the Recon jet video below.
