Check This Out

Go have a look here for what's happening in wearable information gear. Reaves sent me this one, and it's pretty impressive, even if not in production yet. It's only a matter of time. 

Those MIT kids are sharper than a boxcar full of thumbtacks, they are. 

The vid is a little slow during the intro, just a woman onstage talking, but it's worth watching for the gosh-wow factor once it gets rolling -- real Minority Report stuff here ...

At a quick glance it looks like a recycling of a lot of ideas which were left on the table from Sun's _Starfire_ .

It seemed a lot more intrusive to me than I would want future tech to be.

Not something I would rush out and buy, either, but that's not the point. There is a lot of this kind of tech coming down the pike, and some of it will break down on the road, some won't. I just find it interesting how people think about such things.

I used to listen to 78 records, then 45's and 33's, followed by eight tracks, cassette tapes, DATs, CD's and now I have a small iPod. Mostly when I listen to music, it is still on a CD, either a commercial one or one I've burned from music I've recorded myself.

The future has arrived and we are living in it ...
