Motorola Solutions (no, not that Motorola — the other one) has given a bag of cash to heads-up glasses maker Recon Instruments. Recon, whose Recon Jet HUD glasses we've been looking forward to for some time, didn't disclose the amount of the investment, but that it was enough to warrant a press release tells us it was at least marginally substantial to their bottom line.

Kreyos delays once more, now due to ship May 15h

The folks at Kreyos have once again updated their status, much to the dismay of anxious backers. They've once again delayed shipments and the first devices are now set to release between May 15th and 20th.

Fitness wearables are a dime a dozen at this point, and here comes another one geared toward wave-seekers. Rip Curl has announced the SearchGPS surf watch. It’ll record your top speed and how far you’ve ridden, number of waves, and just how gnarly you truly are. (That last one’s a feature we suggest they add, anyway.) It looks a tad clunky, but function trumps form for this one. And you’ll be...
