Can't quite see this being a massive winner - but then what do I know...

Streaming Glasses [mirror.co.uk]

I can't think of anything worse than walking about with images and realtime info changing on me... but it's not quite April 1st yet....

Cool idea if used with augmented reality, but certainly not for me. :)

Law enforcement will not like this invention in the least if its publicly available, no officer wants to be recorded and if face recog is remotely used on the back end it's possible a crook would know the officers name on sight. They didn't think this through though I do suspect this may be available to police before its available to the population.

Google is a fanboi of enabling the big brother is watching movement.
