Vuzix may have what it takes to compete with Google
Vuzix is currently one of the leading forces in augmented reality eyewear. The company is poised to provide Google with a great deal of competition, especially if Google cannot deliver on its promise of augmented reality with Project Glass. The events Vuzix is attending are expected to provide the company with some of the exposure it needs to win favor with tech-savvy consumers.
