If the first crop of Android Wear smartwatches falls just outside of your price range, don’t fret — ASUS may soon come to your rescue.

I’m not going to get all goatse-bearded hipster douchebag Google Glass hysterical on you, but I do have to confess to wondering what the usefulness of these things are.

And nobody but goatse-bearded hipster douchebags are going to claim they’re really attractive, either.
