Have you been dying to capture your entire life on video, but worried you'll look like a weirdo with all those cameras and devices attached to you? Now you can just don your favorite pair of nerd glasses and track everything you do.
Sony Computer Science Laboratories, in collaboration with the University of Tokyo, has developed a lightweight lifelogging device that tracks the user's eye movement, determining his or her objects of interest.
All of us who needed glasses as kids know that nothing frustrates learning more than being unable to read the blackboard. California-based designer Yves Béhar, of One Laptop Per Child fame, has partnered with the Mexican government to create a program that will supply 400,000 free pairs of glasses a year to children in need.
The program, called See Well to Learn Better, follows Béhar's philosophy that "design should continue to make a difference beyond the commercial world."
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
