The Vue smart specs are the cure for the uncommon glasshole

editors-choice-300x96No one can deny that the idea of smart glasses is pretty cool. Unfortunately, their design is usually awkward, painfully obvious, and kind of creepy, making what is an interesting look anything but.

This is why the Vue everyday smart glasses are so intriguing. The team behind it crammed some of the more desired features of something like a Google Glass into a pair of frames that look, well, normal. In a pair of Vue glasses, users will find an impressive feature set. Working through Bluetooth with its companion smartphone app, the Vue’s bone conductive design allows for hands-free calling (in conjunction with its built-in mic), turn-by-turn navigation, and the option to listen to music no matter where — all with a few taps to its rim.
