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.

There are cars with HUD, projected on the windscreen. Thing is, that's usually just for speed, and sometimes the arrows of GPS (plus the usual voice commands of course).
But Glass is about different things...

There's a close parallel (comparable speeds) with a skydiving course at my place - recording devices are strictly prohibited.
