Neat idea! I wonder how long it will take before they stereo it and allow users to download and watch videos. I would think that gamers would like this as an added view for 3d gaming..

Fascinating concept! The user may see something different from what the video shows given the form factor. I am really interested in knowing how comfortable wearing it. In addition to the technical challenges, the distraction to the user needs to be accessed properly. Cell phone talking while driving is already proven to impose dangerous to the road. I don't know how well people interact to the environment with multiple screens in front of them. Maybe, assisted driving and assisted walking will help.

It's a cool concept but Project Glass will have to get away from an antenna near the temple region if they don't want users concerned about SAR from wireless components. Also, based on that form factor, it will be fairly difficult to design all of the electronics into the device without investing in custom ASICs. Power supplies (including battery), wireless devices with EMI shielding, a processor, storage, audio and video codecs + analog interfacing. It will be a challenging design task for sure. Maybe some variant of the DaVinci processors would do the trick?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
