GPS Glasses!

John Moe Aug 5, 2010

Yesterday we talked about some engineers in Austin, Texas who hooked up electrodes to their faces and played Super Mario Bros using only their eyeballs. Weird Tech Eyeball Story Week continues with a prototype of GPS glasses from Japan, which is really the world capital of bizarre personal tech stories (sorry Austin, keep trying). The glasses determine where you are and where you’re facing and guide you to a destination that you enter…somehow… using little LED lights that look ridiculous. It’s called a Wearable Personal Navigation System and it’s ugly as anything.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
