Vuzix secures Nokia technology license for see-through optics technology

It appears that the folks at Vuzix have come one step closer to creating a perfect pair of displays in eyeglasses as they today collaborate with Nokia to enter into a technology license agreement to both develop and create see-through waveguide optics for near-eye display systems.

Networked Police – Facial Matching Glasses

Brazilian police have come up with a system to scan the faces of people in crowded areas, checking them against a central database to see if they're wanted bad-duded. I love this. Truly, these are like the grandpappy of the wearable systems from Snow Crash. It's a set of glasses with a camera fitted to them. The camera can grab 400 faces per second out of a crowd and send them all to a central database. If there's a match, a notifier pops up on a screen and lets the officer know that there is a wanted criminal afoot.

Instead of coating the entire lens of your sunglasses, designer Chris Mullin wants to be able to focus on the sun directly, and use what he calls a Glare Shield to keep the sunlight out of your eye, but without dimming everything else you're looking at, too.
