Good point Bunter, fashion is in the eye of the beholder. Just look at those stereo headphones from the 70's, complete with antennae!

Hard to say what will become "cool" Cabe.

Would anyone have guessed that walking around with a little "box" sticking out of your ear while apearing to be talking to yourself would work out socially?

I grew up (in some ways ;^D) in the 60s-70s.  Looking back at the clothes and hair styles (when I had hair!) reminds me how malleable public taste is.

Enjoyed your thoughts.

Cheerio,

Dennis

Anyone really sold on wearing this sort of tech publicly? I have seen people with Google Glass before, not impressed.

I do not need glasses... but I would have to wear them...

Perhaps if they were like safety glasses it would work out ok. Yes, pocket protector in tow too.

Yes Charles, I have had them run straight into the side of a vehicle also.  They will run alongside a bicycle (fun to speculate what they will do next!).  Narrow skull full of eye sockets, ear canals and just enough room to think about eating , running and reproduction.

Take care.

Bobjengr definitely these glasses will require FDA approval and will have been tested before comming into the market else they will cause a large unrecoverable loss to the public .

Only 1 apparent benefit I can see for these types of glasses are closed-captioning.

Everyone initially thinks of a movie theater situation but I think real-time, live CC for conversations at a noisy restaurant would be amazing for those with trouble hearing.

I pretty much agree with you AnandY. I am a pretty enthusiastic adopter (sometimes early) of technology, but this is something I am just not very interested in personally either.

What is the difference between these collected glasses and pointing a cell phone at someone? You can't stop either..

I think technology is driving some engineers mad, like in this case, how will this glass work for those with either long or short sight, or let us consider those people who already wear glasses; will they wear two glasses at the same time? I think having an 87 inch screen on your face will at least after sometimes be distracting and unpleasant.  I also think that you cannot use such glasses while performing other activity like driving. Personally am not for this idea.

Praying for God's protection is about all we can do when it comes to deer, Bunter. About 20 years ago, I was driving 70-mph down I-94 in northern Wisconsin (near Chippewa Falls) late at night when a deer mosied across the road straight toward my car. I hit the brakes hard and inched the steering wheel to my right, only to have the deer walk (yes, walk) right up to the side of my speeding car, and graze his head against the driver's side window. So when you talk about dim-witted members of His creation, I know just what you mean. Unfortunately, I know of no way technology can help in these situations.

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.
Made by Monkeys highlights products that somehow slipped by the QC cops.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
