Vergence has recently gained lots of momentum - presenting their new eye-wear prototype product at such prestigious venues as:
    TEDxStanford
    TechCrunch Disrupt NYC
    Stanford BASES Finalist Awards
    Stanford/MIT VLAB

They've also been fortunate to get coverage positive coverage in the press:

    Singularity Hub
    PC Magazine
    KZSU Radio

The team is currently working on adding WiFi, thus allowing the glasses to stream the live video to 3rd party apps and to the social web via YouGen.Tv (the website that works with the glasses). The eyewear will be able to pair with registered 3rd party applications so that any app developer will get access to the video created by the glasses -- like augmented reality apps, social video apps -- or any app that uses video and runs on a phone or tablet.

Visit the project today and help spread the word that something big is happening on kickstarter today -- computing enabled eyewear!
