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.

"...people are afraid ...

As a motorcyclist, I think I have the right to be somewhat afraid.
"
And as a pedestrian, I think I have even more cause to be afraid. Anyone who hasn't seen how inconsiderate the average motorcyclist can be when it comes to obeying traffic signals could use a wake-up call. Agree with you on the SUVs though, and not saying you are an inconsiderate cyclist, but felt the need to point out that bikers can be just as prickish.
