Instead this fantastical vision for the very near future is shown in a demonstration video that has us flipping over the prospect of this product being released in the very near future.

Epson Moverio BT-100 video glasses have see through lenses

I have used a bunch of different video glasses over the years for reviews and what not. I have never once had a pair of video glasses in my hands that I would remotely consider wearing in public. A geek has his limits after all. The new Moverio BT-100 video glasses have the same ugly style that most of this sort of gadget offers with some notable differences. The first difference is that on the tiny models skull, the glasses look wider than others on the market do.

Networked Police – Facial Matching Glasses

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.
