Hardware, Embedded Systems Steve Mann on his 35-year history building and wearing computerised eyewear. "Was it blind luck (pardon the expression) that I was wearing this vision-enhancing system at the time of the accident? Not at all: I have been designing, building, and wearing some form of this gear for more than 35 years." Glass has the potential to have a huge impact on the world - and just like with the advent of the mobile phone, people are afraid, cynical, and unable to see the possibly huge benefits of systems like this.

I tend to believe that less is more when it comes to operating a vehicle. Anything that abstracts the process of driving away from the driver is trouble waiting to happen. Even something as seemingly trivial as an automatic transmission incentivizes people to ignore what their vehicle is doing and busy their hands/minds with something else.
