While Google Glass has captured most of the recent press about head-worn computing technology, there are nearly two dozen similar digital display devices in development or already available for purchase. The heads-up display market is quietly and rapidly becoming a diverse, growing sector of the wearables space, with dozens of players ranging from upstart entrepreneurs to well-established tech firms. Some of these companieslike Recon, Epson, and Sonyhave had consumer-ready visual display products on the market for years and are releasing second- and third-generation devices.
