Hey cool! Where can I get one? {8^D

You know, I can imagine hysterical disinformation becoming a
real problem for the first wearable computer users. Someone
will start a goofy rumor, such as someone could run a gag headline
that says wearable computers can create a digital image of a naked
person, which is then superimposed on the heads of existing
persons, so that the user gets the impression she is in a roomful
of naked people.

This would be the killer app that would sell em by the millions
of course, but it could cause problems in the mean time. spike
