ISO15693: I have a pair.

They are a fun toy - I'm developing a cycling app for them, to pair with my phone mounted on my backpack as a rear-view camera, and toggle between GPS directions and the rear-camera image (voice activated)

I am calling it "GlassBackwards" - just so you know. You will see it in the google play store when the glasses are officially released.


You could work on the name a bit, but this would be handy for snowboarders/skiers too.

hardinparamedic: I'm actually excited for Google Glass.

Not because I want to replace my BCGs, of course. But for my job. I see a lot of potential in them to integrate patient monitoring and provide assistance on high risk, low-volume procedures to people in the field. Imagine having an overlay of the vein structure being fed from a hand-held ultrasound when performing an IV on a difficult stick patient. Or having a textbook overlay on someone's chest when placing a chest tube. Being able to see active feedback during CPR from your monitor. Being able to get instant drug calculations and dosages for rare-use medications.

The potential for integrated EMRs is even greater. Imagine pulling up to a patient who cannot give you any history, and is unconscious, and being able to access their medications, allergies, and medical history.

Or being able to give a medical control physician a real-time look at your patient's injuries.

That's what I'm excited about.


Or, you know, hit the sonar mode, and get a good look at some nice bobbies of an hot unconcious girl.

/A good EMT doesn't need fancy computer screens to do a stick with a 14ga needle doing 70mph down a cobblestone road on a patient low blood pressure and no visable veins who is convusling.
//Old fat black nurses seem to be the best (calm setting) stickers. I don't have good fat viens (but not horrible either) but they seem to just give it a few seconds worth of eyeball, take a step back, and jab that farker right in like a fencer. Bam! good stick first time.
///It's the cute sexy nurses that end up sticking me so many times I think I am getting a farking tattoo.

imgod2u: You know, with a transparent display, I don't see why it's not possible to make the optics such that one would have to focus their eye farther away in distance than the glass in order to resolve the pixels clearly. That would reduce eye strain significantly.

We're probably a decade away from glasses that monitor your pupils and adjust the display optics dynamically, thus causing no strain at all.


We have the tech now. I have used one of these many times (civilian, not military) and they do what you are talking about with ease.

If this was an Apple product, anyone deriding it would be a "jealous hater."

T.rex: Why do i presume that the white guy is a douche, yet the Asians are using the product earnestly?

It is supposed to be a play on the phrase "Ass Backwards" - but yeah, not everyone has liked the name.

For snowboarders/skiers? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. I think they already tend to wear heavy goggles, which would tend to preclude wearing the GG. But I like your train of thought. You know, GoPro should just come out with a Bluetooth-linked model with some voice-command software, and they could dominate that niche, since I see skiers/snowboarders using the GoPro cameras all the time. That seems like it would be a more natural fit. Heck, they are probably already working on it. If not, they should send me a thank you note.
