More Japanese cyber-technology! These Cyber Goggles have been developed at the University of Tokyo; they record video footage of everyday objects, run them through an object recognition routine and file them away in a database. End result – a searchable visual log of where you last saw something, suggested as an ideal aid to the elderly whose memories aren’t so sharp as they once were. [image from Pink Tentacle article]
Sure, they look a little clunky right now, but that’s just a prototype – size and bulk won’t be a problem by the time they get these things to production.
The real problem, as pointed out in the comments, is how to make sure the forgetful user doesn’t forget where they left their Cyber Goggles …
One thought on “Cyber Goggles – wearable memory aid”
Nice! combine that with the “Wearable monitors” (http://futurismic.com/2007/10/05/wearable-monitors-cyberpunk-style-for-the-subway/) – with some modifications 🙂
