omar isaac has introduced hattrickwear, an augmented reality hat that comes with an extension for plugging in mobile devices, allowing users to interact with their phone’s screen and camera via two reflecting prisms. one can easily interact with their devices using gestures, voice commands and screen swiping. the technology extension also comes with a simple remote control for easy use. conceived as an affordable alternative to google glass, the head piece features a unique structure that comfortably balances all the weight around the head.
