Thank you, New Scientist, for bringing to light this innovation.
Developed at the University of Tsukuba in Japan, engineer Hirotaka Osawa considered these goggles a robot to assist workers get through the more boring parts of their day… including chatting with coworkers!
I’m not sure of the price point on these (and watching the included video on AgencyGlass, maybe I don’t have to worry yet)but I’m wondering when I’ll see something similar in the classroom? I’ve never woken a sleeping student as they’ve got other problems without adding library anxiety. I do wonder what it means for the discourse we try to encourage in our classrooms.
What do you think of goggles with animated eyes that follow you around the room?
