First thing you need IMO is a small high density display unit that have focal point of 20mm or less.
The rest of it is quite easy IMHO.
I have been thinking to reuse old VCR viewfinder but really, they are HUGE!
These is the spirit we need here! Ideas and a lot of them.
First I also thought of that kind of displays.
But in my research attempts which consisted in hours of reading information about the Google glass project,
theoretical reverse engineering and viewing the video with the prototype glass I got an idea of how this
thing works and why they can build it so small.
I'll post some sketches later this week when I'm back home.
Just don't point your "glasses" at me, or you'll be exposed to a device that embeds them into your face. <imagine old man with walking stick>
Having a bunch of mobile surveillance geeks running around is WRONG
What we should be building here in this collective of ne'er-do-wells is a Google Glass JAMMER, not an open sourced enabler of human oppression that governments will build for their own evil purposes.
I have nothing to hide, but personal freedoms are slowly eroded at all levels and when governments get hold of seemingly innocent technologies, people get hurt - or worse.
It's an old one but really fits:If people like you would have made the decision whether the internet will be released to the world or not, we still would write letters.
But I get your point on this. I also thought about that and exactly came to the same conclusion.
Among others, the fact that the glass will almost always be connected to google which then traces
your whole life (video, audio, GPS, mail, searching, ...) all the time brought me to the decision to
start this project.
As there are completely open sources it's possible to make your own configuration on this device
which indeed will allow you to deactivate every part of it. On the other hand it also allows people
to build much more privacy violent devices also.
As a medal has two sides everything has and so does this device. But think about an automatic
censorship code which automatically blurs out peoples faces when using a camera?
This indeed is possible with modern image processing algorithms.
I'm on the same side as you regarding politics and the misuse of technology but let's be true,
everybody from us has to hide something or did you pay copyright fee for every picture you saw
Technology isn't our enemy. And if you want to build a Google Glass JAMMER
why not helping
to get this thing becoming more popular than the product of Google. This automatically will extinguish
them. I don't want to surpass any huge company, neither am I interested in big money. There are still
people out there which fight against the system.
And why not with their own weapons? They and us, both can use a hammer. It just depends on how
each one uses it. You can just hit everyone on their head and kill them. But how about building a helmet
with the use of a similar hammer to save everyone from the death?
...think about it.
All in all I'm very surprised that I got some response yet, which I never thought would happen so fast and
I'm still waiting for the flood of hater posts (which I wish will never come).
If it keeps like this, the whole wheel soon will start to move
Thanks so far,DarkClover
