Wearable computing pioneer Steve Mann has allegedly been attacked
by employees of a French McDonald's after sporting his own version of Google's Glass AR headset
, with the EyeTap eyepiece grabbing snapshots of those involved. Mann, who led MIT's Wearable Computers group and has been exploring mediated reality technologies for several decades, claims that while on holiday in Paris with his family he was challenged by staff at the fast food chain, who ripped up his medical documentation about the headset and then attempted to pull it from his head. Mann's system is "permanently attached and does not come off my skull without special tools."
