Also, below is a writeup on Wearable Technology by Karp:
Want to learn about new types of eyewear that offer augmented reality, smartphone connectivity, a built-in video camera and GPS? Or an electronic eye training system that can improve your golf game? How about artificial retinas that are restoring sight to people with vision loss, or a new video gaming system that puts the player into an incredibly lifelike virtual world?
These are just some of the “spec-techular” new eyewear and vision technologies that are changing the way we see. From wearable devices like Google Glass to bionic eyes‚ electronic eyewear is advancing rapidly in many dimensions. These new technologies are the result of a convergence in the fields of medicine, social media, video gaming and 3-D entertainment.
“Wearable devices are one of this year’s hottest trends, and because of Google Glass, there is tremendous interest in devices that use eyewear as a vehicle,” said Karp
