Microvision’s big Air Force contract

The Redmond firm’s getting $3.2 million to develop lightweight, color, see-through, wearable displays.

In other words, it’s prototyping James Bondish sunglasses with little data displays inside.

From the press release:

Microvision believes that the resulting small and ergonomic display solution within the form factor of protective eyewear or high-fashion sunglasses could enable soldiers to access full-color tactical and strategic information in a secure and hands-free fashion without excess volume and weight imposed by current wearable display technologies.

Engadget picked it up and has a picture of a soldier wearing something similar, though it looks like the guy is in a tank and not an airplane.

I wonder if the Microvision specs could help improve the glitchy sounding Land Warrior System that Ft. Lewis soldiers have been testing.
