Two futuristic tech things you can preorder right now

by Lillie-Beth Brinkman Published: July 16, 2013

Google Glass isn’t the only futuristic tech device that we’ll see on the market soon. There are two devices available for pre-order that offer a similar “wow” factor that Glass does. (see videos below.)

One, the ReconJet,  is similar to Glass in that you wear it on your face. It has GPS and a camera, can track performance data while exercising and pair with your smart phone for additional capabilities. Preorder by Sunday, July 21, to get it for $499, with a shipping date of December. After that, ReconJet will set you back $599.

The other, the Myo from ThalmicLabs is an armband that controls multiple devices by waving your arms or snapping your fingers. It can control your computer, phone and other technologies. Preorder now for $149, with a projected shipping date of early 2014.

Here’s a look at both:

First, the ReconJet:

Do you know of any more? I’d love to hear. I’m fascinating by this and interested to see what we’ll be wearing in the future — and what we won’t.
