DIY Wearable Pi With Near-Eye Video Glasses 59

coop0030 (263345) writes "Noe & Pedro Ruiz at Adafruit have created a pair of open source near-eye video glasses combined with a Raspberry Pi. Their 3D Printed design turns a pair of 'private display glasses' into a "google glass"-like form factor. It easily clips to your prescription glasses, and can display any kind of device with Composite Video like a Raspberry Pi. They have a video demonstrating the glasses, a tutorial on how to build them, along with the 3d files required to print it out."

    Wrong. The objections to glass are that there's a camera on them with no indication they're recording. I didn't watch the video (did we as a society just collectively say "fuck it, why type something out when you can talk into a camera?") but it doesn't look like there's a camera on there.

    The privacy concerns are one thing. If you're just objecting to someone having a video display on their face, then you're simply being a Luddite, and this isn't the place for you.

    If anything, you should be cheering this on: this is a competitor to google glass without the privacy issues.
