Look what's coming! Seems incredibly futuristic to me, glasses that allow you to do everything 'hands free': take photos, "see" directions, send audio messages, communicate with others, translate, calculate. Impressive. If it works out of course, it is still in development:

Yes. I heard about these on the Today programme. I think I would be a bit worrying to be talking to anyone wearing them as they could photograph you, record what you were saying, and the next thing, you would be all over the internet!

Apparently in Russia it is the norm to have high resolution cameras mounted on car dashboards. There are so many road traffic accidents that people want to have their own "evidence" recorded. That's how the videos of the recent Russian meteor were taken.

That's interesting J0 re the meteor, I wondered how all those images came out so quickly. I've heard of cyclists wearing 'helmet cameras' for the same reason - to record incidents. Things seem to be moving so fast! #gottakeepup
