Is you GPS a bossy skank?

January, 2014

www.helpfreetheearth.com

Do you have a bossy female voice in your car telling you where to go? Does she get mad when you don't obey her? What do her initials GPS stand for? Grumpy Pushy Skank?

If she isn't in your car, you can count on her being "in your face" next.

The "just released" futuristic Epson Moverio BT-200 Glasses puts Android all around you. It's the next generation of smart glasses technology featured at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Epson is muscling in on Google’s space before the search giant corners the market in wearable face technology.

Running Android 4.0 and featuring Bluetooth support, the Moverio BT-200 is a head-controlled device with two transparent screens which work together to overlay an image in the centre of your field of vision.

The glasses contain built-in sensors including a gyroscope, GPS, accelerometer and microphone, as well as Dolby Digital Plus sound capability.

Users will be able to watch HD and 3D content via two 0.42-inch LCD panels which deliver the equivalent of a 320-inch qHD screen across your entire field of vision, along with the ability to see side-by-side 3D content.

Upgrading to business glass? Like Google’s Glass, there is also a front-facing VGA camera, although Epson is keen to stress that the camera is normally off, and when it is operational, a red recording light is clearly visible on the device, in order to distance itself from some of the worries surrounding Google’s hardware data capture.

Powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, the BT-200 also comes with 8GB of storage space, which can be expanded up to 32GB via an SD card, and Epson believe users will enjoy a battery life of around six hours. The glasses’ bulkier construction is a signal that Epson is aiming the BT-200 towards enterprises rather than consumers. Potential uses include allowing workers to QR or AR codes automatically to get information on products or inventory quickly and easily.

The Moverio BT-200 will be on sale through Amazon and direct from Epson for $699, and will be available in the U.S. in March and Europe in May.

PRIVACY CONTROVERSY

With any new technology, there is misuse and these wearable glasses are a huge problem when it comes to privacy. The manufacturers will make the excuse that they are just taking the functionality that we already have in our portable devices and making it more readily accessible.

Think about being filmed without your knowledge by someone from their glasses. Think about having your conversations logged and transcribed!

How the hell will you know when people are filming you through their glasses? How will you know when they are using it as a perving device?

What about that app that allows people to take photos of you just by blinking! Forget about privacy.
