Ray Ban Stories (Friday thread?)

Partners Ray-Ban and Facebook release sunglasses with 2 cameras for photos and videos. Recording is activated by touching the frame or voice command. The story on wired here https://www.wired.com/story/facebook...amera-glasses/

Compared to the Google ones, these look normal. So, this is going to be funny with privacy laws.

So, what would you record with them? Not a bad idea to drive with them and record the interesting things I see more frequently than I wanted




Also, this is good for joking. Someone should sell stickers that look like cameras to put them over my prehistoric Wayfarers and make people uncomfortable in public places. Even better, on 5CHF sunglasses. If some complains, just give them to the person complaining, ha!

I really like the feature where you can take a picture by winking.

Perfect for perverts in Yoga classes. Is there a prescription glasses version coming?

There must be. This important part of the market must be served.

What a strange question. Everything, of course.

Will it be legal to punch someone who stands in front of you wearing one of these? I think it should be.

I had the same thought. This so soooooo creepy.

I can see school bans coming.

Re: Ray Ban Stories (Friday thread?)

Does everybody need to feel like they are some 007, or what. Or is the entire world after them?

What about the consent to be filmed? Or will people now wear a 24/7 t-shirt "no worries, you are being filmed"? 1st it's the street view, now this. Like. Gaaah.

Will you now look closely at your supervisor's specks?

They might misinterpret it.

Re: Ray Ban Stories (Friday thread?)

In the US, they will litigate the bejeezus out of this, image rights etc.
In much of Europe, they will end up banning this outright.

In Switzerland?

Friend of a friend. Jokes aside, it is of zero interest to me.

Re: Ray Ban Stories (Friday thread?)

The whole thing is only going to get worse and ban / regulation probably wont help. There will always be yet another startup doing cameras on the hats, t-shirts, whatever.

I think we should fight tech with tech. Just like you can buy a drone defense system to capture abusive drones above your yard (yes, you can and yes, they work. marvelously!) there should be a technology to automatically blur you 24/7 to any camera device that captures you. I am sure someone is working on it. If nobody is, I am waiting for the bot to capture this, share it with whoever is datamining EF and when the tech pops up in a few years from now I'll claim IP rights and retire happily
