Luigi Cappel‘s insight:

Well this certainly adds a new dimension for those of us who are follically challenged, of course it doesn’t feature viewing as such, which means that whilst it has potential benefits, it doesn’t replace Google Glasses.

I do like its creativity, but need to know more about what and how it communicates. The idea of a wig and Google Glasses, is pretty creative, but there is some overlap. I guess amongst other things it will connect to a Smartphone or Tablet.

So if you see me some day soon with hair, you’ll know that I’m on track, or should I say being tracked:)
