Never Lose Your Keys Again

Do you misplace your keys? wallet? cellphone? Well check this out!

Japanese scientists have invented a pair of intelligent glasses that remembers where people last saw their keys, handbag, iPod or mobile phone. The spectacles - which come with a built in camera, display screen and computer brain - can even identify unfamiliar plants or faces. To use the glasses, the wearer first wanders around a house or workplace for an hour or so, looking at the objects he or she may later want to find in a hurry. Each time the camera focuses on a object - such as a set of keys, a mobile phone or a purse - the wearer says the name aloud. The name is then recorded and stored into the memory. Once the names have been programmed in, the glasses will try to find the right name for any object they come across. The names appear in small type on the viewfinder. If they are unable to recognise an object they make a guess and - if they get it wrong - learn from their mistakes.

I'd like to take these for a test drive. What will the Japanese come up with next?

I love Albert Brooks movies and I highly recommend one of my favorites, Defending Your Life. It's a comedy classic. Here's an early Albert Brooks piece I came across on Youtube:

No, that's not me.

And now, only on Fox:

It's Friday and this weekend should be fun. Elissa will be running on Saturday and then we'll be celebrating St. Patty's Day! Have a great weekend.
