Looks like Epson has beat Google to the punch with the release of its own take on Smart Glasses. The Epson Moverio BT-200 ($699) features a dual screen (unlike google's single screen) for 3-D display and augmented reality applications, a prescription lens insert, motion sensors to capture head movement, a front facing camera, and large bright displays. The control unit has a textured touchpad with additional motion sensors, and a mciro SD card slot for extended storage. Epson says the BT-200 will work with most Android apps and is primarily geared towards developers.
Oneness is now offering the Jordan V.5 Grown Low - Gym Red ($85) and you just might want to add these casual kicks to your spring lineup. If I had one word to describe these shoes it would be smooth. The upper is minimal to say the least with mostly hidden lace eyelets and only the Jordan logo showing prominently on the tongue. The whole kit sits on a bright white midsole, adding additional contrast to the overall presentation.

A Pencil For Fifty Three's Paper App ($60) is here and it looks like it's the next piece in the puzzle for artists. The problem with drawing or writing using a tablet and stylus is that you really don't get the feel and touch of writing on paper. But now it looks like Fifty Three has got that problem whipped.First they released their away winning app that allows you to draw without having to worry about all the complexities under the hood and now they have a digital pencil. The pencil has such great features as a kiss feature that allows you to active the pen with your tablet simply by touching it to the screen. It also has palm rejection which tells the tablet whether it's the pencil or your palm touching the tablet.And erasing has made easy by simply flipping the pencil over and using the eraser, no buttons to press at all. Taking style cues from classic drafting pencil, it fits comfortably in hand and is natural to use. The pencil is available in either seamless black aluminum or solid sustainable walnut wood.
