GPS Navigation System Built into Eyeglasses


(YouTube Link)


At a recent trade show, the Nakajima Lab at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo demonstrated a prototype GPS directional system that is built into a pair of glasses. The user starts by inputting his/her destination, then following lights in the frame indicating which direction in which to travel. The Nakajima Lab says that this system could be safer than handheld GPS guidance systems because the user can keep his/her eyes on the road.

Think about navigating on a bike. It would be cool to have this built into a pair of sunglasses. Maybe even a Heads Up Display with a map,speed, etc. I usually stop and look at the map every so often.

If you've ever tried to navigate in Tokyo, you'll realize how necessary these glasses are. (For instance, buildings are numbered by the sequence in which they were built, not by their location.)
