My questionable opinion is that this is designed wrong. Since there's a belt clip battery and it's tethered, wouldn't it make more sense to house the cpu there, and make it modular? Make the eyewear as light as possible? You could use a version of a phone. Sell more phones, create upgrade paths. I could really get into this. This is something the great Steve Jobs might have done, setting goals for eyepiece weight, which really needs to be a a certain spec for something like this to go mainstream.

Just not this version.

The CPU is not what makes it heavy. It’s the lenses, the mechanics, the eye-tracking, the cameras, the front display, and the frame that needs to hold everything together.

The camera–>CPU/GPU–>display path also needs to be extremely fast in order to achieve the low latency required for mixed reality. An external solution would complicate that.
