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.
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.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
Last week, the bill for reforming chemical regulation, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, passed the House. If it or a similar bill becomes law, the effects on cost and availability of adhesives and plastics incorporating these substances are not yet clear.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration.
