Intel Capital, the investment branch of Intel, has announced that they have made a "significant" investment into Recon Instruments and their head-up display (HUD), the Jet. Designed for use in sports or physical activity, the Jet offers much more specialized functions than Google Glass. Not sure how comfortable I would be wearing something so expensive on my head while I'm ski blading or whatever but I would be lying if I said I didn't want one.

While neither side has revealed how much Intel has invested into Recon Instruments, Intel has said that they will be sharing their expertise in "manufacturing, operations and technology" as well as the investment itself. Me thinks that the wearable technology war is just over the horizon...

Hear's a bit of an idea what the Jet HUD is capable of, or so they tell us.
