Technical Illusions, the group of people who ran a successful Kickstarter for the castAR Augmented Reality glasses, have started delivering the finished product to their backers.

The device, which managed to raise $1 million on Kickstarter, features projectors, a camera and active shutter glasses that allow you to play hologram-style games projected more or less on to any surface. Think of it like the AR systems you’ve already seen in mobile apps, or like the AR games included with devices like the Nintendo 3DS, but instead of seeing the AR images on a screen, you see them before your eyes in the glasses.

It’s for this reason that the creators of the glasses, ex-Valve employees Jeri Ellsworth and Rick Johnson, call them “the most versatile AR and VR system”, alluding to the fact that by combing the AR functionality with the glasses, they also becomes a pretty cool Virtual Reality device as well.

There’s no date for when they’ll be available to everyone, but you can pre-order now at the Technical Illusions website.
