You've seen them in futuristic movies, you've seen limited use in commercials. Pretty soon, I'm guessing, they'll be in general use; glasses that make our electronic gadgets hands free. That means we can take photographs while driving or carrying in the gorceries, without holding a camera, phone or other device. People will be making phone calls, writing in their diaries (or blogs), adding items tp their grocery and to-do lists, all thru the use of these glasses.
I don't kow whether to think that it's a great invention that will keep us from having pocket loads of stuff with us, or to be totally aghast at what is going to be distracting drivers and people walking the aisles in the grocery stores.
Here in Germany it is forbidden to use a hand-held phone while driving, but it is permissible to use the mobile phone in hands-off mode (voice activated dialling etc).
But even the latter increases the accident rate somewhat because it is still a distraction. So I wonder how the politicians will react to a HUD?
What is the situation stateside, Bogie?
