Wearable tech has a lot of hype but it is yet to be adopted largely by the masses. One of the reasons for this is the hefty prices that come with most of the wearable devices. However, now this could change due to a new heads-up display, called the Vufine, which has been developed by Goro Kosaka, a tech enthusiast. This HUD is easy to operate and cost effective. It is hands free and provides display in front of your eyes.

Vufine- What Does it Look Like?
Vufine is not a computer but is a wearable display. So, you won’t get a camera, an operating system or any interfaces which you need to learn to use. The main focus is on the display which makes the resolution superior to similar devices like the Recon Jet or Google Glass. You can use your favorite applications with real-life picture-in-picture.
Any object which can output a 720p HDMI signal can be connected to Vufine using a special, thin HDMI cable. You can use it with your digital cameras, smartphones, GoPro cameras, etc. You don’t have to worry about your battery dying quickly or think about any latency issues. You can attach the headset with different user glasses. This is possible due to a magnetic docking station which provides extra stability and adjustability. With it, users can adjust the viewing angle of the screen so that it suits their requirements. The magnetic head mount also makes it easy to put on and take off Vufine and you can carry it when you are not using it.
