But yeah, lots of prior art on the ideas and even some implementations exist. Another source for what was/is obvious to those of ordinary skill this art would be the Wear-Hard Archives (http://www.haven.org/mailman/listinfo/wear-hard). I miss the days when that list was more active.
Never knew about that list; time for an archive trawl, I think. Thanks!
Though I suppose they may be thinking that common use-cases will involve rotating one's head down a bit while maintaining one's line of sight, similar to "looking over one's glasses", which would bring their screen between the user's eye and what one is looking at.
These are design patents, meaning they protect the look of the glasses, NOT any of the functionality.
No more pesky ad noise == quality of life significantly improved.
Sorry for the monomania, but the man really did pioneer a huge chunk of wearable computing and AR.
