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."

    I don't mind people using HMDs.

    I mind people using HMDs with cameras attached that don't tell me that they're recording me.

    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.

    I object to having a conversation with someone who hasn't the courtesy to maintain eye contact and to focus on what is being said but rather with what is on screen.

    The screen is "in my face" never just "on his face."

    I object to tech that encourages its users to become more insular and self-absorbed. If that makes me a Luddite so be it.
