  3. I almost never leave comments, however i did some searching and wound up here Top 4 AR
    Smart Glasses 2016 – Imagineality. And I do have a couple of questions for you if
    it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like some of these comments come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to
    follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make
    a list of the complete urls of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
