castAR glasses: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Pretty cool VR/AR glasses by Technical Illusions. They just launched a Kickstarter campaign:

I think the starter kit might be cheaper than GoogleGlass. Like Microsoft's Kinect, you probably won't be able to wear these glasses outside, but who would want to split their attention between the virtual world and reality?

Here is another video on the overview of the system and people's reactions at both MakerFaires (NYC, SF):

Found this other video on this site on a demo of how doctors would be able to use this system for MRI's (not fully developed or ready-to-launch mode):

More information here about how immersive this system is compared to other systems: http://oracletalk.com/castar-virtual-reality-glasses-blow-kickstarter/

Obviously, castAR isn’t precisely in competition with the likes of Google or other wearable devices for your face. Neither are they quite as immersive as the Oculus Rift (thought they say you’ll be less prone to motion sickness with castAR).
