AiRScouter head mounted display due in August

Brother is making an upgraded version of its AiRScouter head mounted display glasses. The WD-100G with lenses and WD-100A without lenses offers USB connectivity and an updated design compared to the previous model.

The head mounted display has a maximum resolution of 800x600 with a dedicated control box, which Brother suggests is like a 16in screen from 1m away or a 13ft screen 10m away. When accompanied by a separate webcam and headset, it offers a possible augmented reality system similar in many respects to Google's Project Glass.

Brother expects to ship both models of AiRScouter displays in August to customers in Japan for 199,800 Yen ($2,475) with no word on international sales. Project Glass, by comparison, is estimated to cost between $250 and $600. [via Akihabara News]
