Echo Loop is water-resistant, so you can wash your hands while wearing the ring, but showering and swimming are not recommended.

Perfect for farkers.

Amazon Facepalm seems like an apt name.

I think google Glass is, most likely, a starting point for what will eventually be AR.  It's like the PDA was to the cell phone - Yes, you had a lot of douches walking around with them but eventually, they evolved into something that most people carry and have integrated into their lives.

I don't know the capabilities of Google Glass but I know the Hololens has had, for quite a while, the ability to 3D wireframe a good chunk of the room in your immediate vicinity.  Combine the increase in processor speed (over time) with 5G and improvements in this technology and everything is ready to go for AR.

How well does it hold up to lotions or rapid repeated motion?

Those seem nice.  If a little oversized...

I wear rx glasses all day everyday anyways (hate contacts), so I'd definitely be in for a little AR action.  So to speak.

We'll have to see -- I wore google glass into a bar and was punched in the face.

The question is: what do people believe encroaches on their right to privacy -- and how vehemently do they want to protect what they envision those rights to be.

Augmented Reality Explorer Steve Mann Assaulted At Parisian McDonald's

Subsequently another person within McDonalds physically assaulted me, while I was in McDonand's, eating my McDonand's Ranch Wrap that I had just purchased at this McDonald's. He angrily grabbed my eyeglass, and tried to pull it off my head. The eyeglass is permanently attached and does not come off my skull without special tools.I tried to calm him down and I showed him the letter from my doctor and the documentation I had brought with me. He (who I will refer to as Perpetrator 1) then brought me to two other persons. He was standing in the middle, right in front of me, and there was another person to my left seated at a table (who I will refer to as Perpetrator 2), and a third person to my right. The third person (who I will refer to as Perpetrator 3) was holding a broom and dustpan, and wearing a shirt with a McDonald's logo on it. The person in the center (Perpetrator 1) handed the materials I had given him to the person to my left (Perpetrator 2), while the three of them reviewed my doctor's letter and the documentation.

After all three of them reviewed this material, and deliberated on it for some time, Perpetrator 2 angrily crumpled and ripped up the letter from my doctor. My other documentation was also destroyed by Perpetrator 1.
