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 remember reading about this guy after airport security ripped off his electrodes in 2002: http://it.slashdot.org/story/02/03/14/2051228/airport-security-vs-c...

I guess I could understand why being part cyborg would be difficult at the airport when they don't even let me bring toothpaste.

And people that don't have imagination think that we will not be wearing computers in near future.Think computerized fabrics and glasses that are much less obvious than Google Glass of today.
