AR / Google Glass headset concept

Sketchfab.com had another Sketchfast over a weekend. the theme was “your ideal AR headset”

“Augmented reality headsets and glasses are all the rage today, with the Google glasses starting to ship and new players entering the field every week. But what would your ideal AR headset look like? How would you design the ideal AR headset for you? For your life?”

I had recently been thinking about both the cumbersome nature of the existing tech and also stuff like 3d glasses that one has to wear at the theatre or with a 3d TV..
especially if you already wear prescription glasses.

so I decided to make something that is more universal and clips onto most frames(prescription glasses or sunglasses)

Model of the Synergy Aircraft

my quick Blender model of Synergy Aircraft’s – Synergy

The Synergy is a proposed five-seat, single-engine, kit aircraft, designed by John McGinnis of Kalispell, Montana and intended for production by his company, Synergy Aircraft.
The aircraft’s closed wing design, termed a “double box tail”, is intended to lower induced drag and be stall resistant. – full wikipedia page

I modelled this as a quick modelling/rendering exercise for a client who is designing a very different kind of aircraft. can’t talk about that coz of the NDA(Non Disclosure Agreement)
