Google’s Glass augmented reality project opened itself to a few thousand more potential wearers with the #ifihadglass promotion, but according to the New York Times it’s already addressing the question of if people want Glass. One major obstacle to introducing such a new type of product is making it look good, and the paper reports Google is negotiating with online glasses seller Warby Parker to help design better looking frames, citing unnamed sources. Of course, we ran to the counter, $ 1,500 in hand to get a taste of the future of wearable computing — and take first person pics of that group skydiving we’re always doing — but we can imagine any efforts to take Glass mass market will need some refashioning first.

Each week our friends at Inhabitat recap the week’s most interesting green developments and clean tech news for us– it’s the Week in Green.
Today is Super Bowl Sunday, and whether you geek out on the game or just examine it out for the commercials, it’s hard to prevent. Even more than one-third of Americans will tune in to the game tonight, and unexpected new research discovers that despite running the TELEVISION, home energy use actually drops by as much as 7.7 percent during the Super Bowl for a range of reasons. One excellent method to keep your carbon footprint low, and your body healthy, on game day is to refrain from meat– and we’ve got you covered with our top 6 vegan and vegetarian treat options to bring to a Super Bowl celebration. After the game, the San Francisco 49ers will anticipate the 2014 period, when they’ll debut their new arena in Santa Clara. The stadium will feature three solar varieties and a green roofing, and it will be the NFL’s first LEED-certified arena.

Huawei’s MediaPad 10 Link plainly didn’t know exactly what it was getting itself into when it traveled to the FCC. The Android tablet, which made a quick look at CES a few weeks back, took several hits to its 10.1-inch show, now that Wolverine is evidently handling electronic devices for the commission. According to notes from CES, the tablet’s running Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. No word yet on how soon the newest member of the MediaPad family will be riding FCC approval onto our coasts– or if the name indicates some brand-new Hyrulian tie-in for the company.

Whether you ’ re polishing your magnetic death ray or powering up your Stargate, the results of electromagnetic fields on your watch can be rather harmful. Back in the old days when scientists wore suits and good watches to work, they would bring their wrist watches too near certain pieces of equipment, rendering the movement pointless. Rolex resolved this by wrapping its movements in non-ferrous metal however their watch, the Milgauss, can just handle up to 1,000 Gauss.
That was then and this is now. Omega has actually chosen to blow Rolex from the water with their new Seamaster Aqua Terra. This watch movement is in fact made of non-ferrous product that can stand up to 1.5 tesla or 15,000 gauss, about two times the magnetic output of a subwoofer, while an MRI could strike up to 70,000 at its peak. This, by the way is what occurs when you get metal near your MRI.
The watch is a fairly standard three-handed timepiece but the brand-new motion, the 8508, is what makes it unique. The watch will deliver this spring with pricing to be figured out (anticipate something in the $ 10,000 array if not lesser). Sound a little pricey? Inform that to yourself when you inadvertently fall with a magnetic space-time vortex and your Timex quits ticking.
Stealth Wear is a line of counter-surveillance clothing designed by Adam Harvey to help avoid detection by the government or whoever the hell else might be hunting you down. The Illuminati? Probably not, you’re not that important. A jilted ex-girlfriend MAYBE, but don’t kid yourself, she’s probably already moved on to a dude with nicer privates. “Ouch.” The truth hurts, brobro! The goods:
The anti-drone hoodie and anti-drone scarf: garments designed to thwart thermal imaging, a technology used widely by UAVs.
The XX-shirt: a x-ray shielding print in the shape of a heart, that protects your heart from x-ray radiation
And the Off Pocket: an anti-phone accessory that allows you to instantly zero out your phone’s signal
Listen: if you have a drone after you, I’m not sure now’s the time to go shopping for a new anti-thermal imaging wardrobe. And if you know IN ADVANCE there might be a drone after you in the near future, well, you’re probably James Bond and should just ask Q for whatever you need. Oooh — and tell him I need something to help unclasp those tricky little hooks that hold a girl’s bra on. By the time I finally get them undone the girl’s already back from the bathroom and catches me wearing the f***ing thing.
Thanks to Brucie, who hides the old fashioned way: in plain sight wearing a fake beard and mustache. Classic!
As if human interaction in the post-Internet age wasn ’ t weird enough, here ’ s RISR. It ’ s a web of sensing units that connects to a cellular phone and scans your “ target ” for body language. RISR then shakes on your body advising you just how to move in order to ensure maximum engagement.
The simplest way to recognize this thing is to watch the above video presentation however it ’ s essentially a method to “ mirror ” social targets in numerous situations. Mirroring is the process of copying what your target is doing in order to urge interaction. For instance, RISR will certainly buzz to remind you to encounter your target when he or she is facing you and to move your shoulders if your target is moving theirs.
The tool helps individuals with social anxiety feel a bit more comfy in social scenarios along with postural signs to enhance your basic well-being. The business will also supply consultations for folks who require unique tweaks to enhance their body language.
RISR is coming quickly and with any luck it will help some individuals fulfill, fall in love, and ultimately have children with RISR-enchanced postures. It is the circle of life.
We were speaking with the New York fashion community about delaying New York Fashion Week for a few days while we ran Disrupt, but they merely wouldn ’ t listen. What ’ s more, Sergey Brin and Google sent a bunch of Google Glass devices to Diane von Furstenberg (a renowned designer) who outfitted her gamine fees with a few of the most sought-after tech in the nerdosphere.
Also Sarah Jessica Parker tried them on.
It ’ s clear that Google feels that these GooGlasses will probably obtain a chilly appreciated from the globe at huge and this is among the outreach efforts that will promote people to at the very least give them a fair shake. I fret that these kinds of shows will certainly turn Glass into the must-have accessory of the year and that space-age Web glasses will change the Bluetooth head set as the douche gear of the next years.
It ’ s not all bad. After all, it ’ s about to democratize VR for the masses, which is rather surprisingly badass. As Joel Johnson of the new blog Mote And Beam notes, “ I do not hate it? As a trick, it’ll just work once. However it’s not excessively sidetracking. ”
So you love Windows Phone, but how can you let the world know? Until now, you’d either have to wave your object of desire around, or keep showing colleagues those “Smoked by Windows Phone” YouTube videos. Now, you can simply wear your alliance across your chest, or favorite beverage, thanks to a new CafePress store. Revealed in a Windowsteamblog post, the shop will let you grab mugs, t-shirts, stickers, magnets and more emblazoned with “I Heart Windows Phone” in icons. Not only that, in case all those soccer moms didn’t know which side of the fence you stood, you can clear up the doubt by snagging a bodysuit for your youngest. Credit card at the ready? Jump on that source link for the goods.

Seen here looking suspiciously like Gandalf (cast a healing spell on that shit, bro!), a 69-year old trucker who’s had the left side of his face exposed to the sun for 28 years (from the driver’s side window) shows off the notable difference in skin texture from the right, normally shaded side. That…wow. I would have maybe looked into driving a British truck every-other haul.
His condition is called unilateral dermatoheliosis, from the Greek dermis and helios, skin and sun. It’s also called photoaging, and it results from chronic exposure to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. In his case, it only affected the left side of his face because of his work. As he drove, he received much many hours of sunlight through the left window of his vehicle.
Now I know what you’re thinking, “Big deal — I spend all day indoors staring at a computer or television screen, there’s no way that’s ever gonna happen to me.” And you know what? You’re right. Sad, but right. I dunno, go hit the beach or something, shit! “Sharks.” Right again! Scoot over and make some room for me on the couch.
Thanks to bb, who is beautifully fair-skinned and has to be very careful in the sun. Me? I’m reckless in the sun! *runs across street blindfolded*
Four year-old Anthony Smith suffers from hearing loss and has to wear a blue hearing aid (Blue?! MAKE IT FLESH TONE). The only problem is he doesn’t like wearing his hearing aid because none of the superheroes in comics do. Enter Anthony’s concerned mother, stage left. No — the OTHER stage left. “That’s stage right.” Theater’s so confusing, I bet that’s why movies are way more popular.
Desperate for help, Anthony’s mother Christina D’Allesandro wrote to Marvel, hoping to discover a superhero that proved him wrong – and that’s where the man with the bow, arrows and penchant for purple clothing comes in (Maya Lopez a.k.a. Echo is another hearing-impaired character in Marvel’s stable of heroes, although unlike Hawkeye, she is completely deaf and wouldn’t benefit from a hearing aid).
Marvel was even nice enough to create some original artwork of Anthony and Hawkeye, and, TA-DA, now Anthony doesn’t mind wearing his hearing aid. Good lookin’, Marvel, but where were you when, I dunno, I HAD TO WEAR HEADGEAR TO MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR A YEAR? Where was Headgear Boy, huh? You wanna know where Heargear Boy was? I’ll tell you — crying himself to sleep every night ON HIS BACK even though he HATES SLEEPING ON HIS BACK but had to because if he didn’t his smile would end up crooked. *sobbing* Somebody hold me.
Hit the jump for another picture Marvel made.
