Steve Mann on Wearables and Sousveillance: TedXToronto Talk

TedXToronto has just released their first batch of talks from this year’s event. One of them was of Steve Mann, father of AR and wearable tech, who talked about his experience with his digital eyepiece which he has been wearing a version of since 1978. 

Dr. Mann also spoke extensively about his idea of sousveillance, the opposite of surveillance, where people start to record their experiences to counteract the inbalance today where the only record of activity exists with authorities.

As Dr. Mann is one of the very few people, perhaps the only, who has worn wearable technology for more than a decade - this talk is very timely and relevant as the general public embark our baby steps into this space.

Intelligent Glasses Translate Languages in Real-Time

Intelligent Glasses translate Japanese, Korean, Chinese and English in real time. Once a swath of text is placed in front of the glasses, the character recognition technology kicks into gear, resulting in a projected image of translated text which is layered over the original foreign text. Translation processing time currently clocks in at over five seconds for the prototype.
