What was i saying, oh yeah...

Never get lost again. Never forget what you wanted to do. Never forget how to get back from where you are.

You have this tiny hidden camera following you werever you go. It only records if you turn left/right or go streight. Then when you discover your lost, you can retrieve the info (it prints it out on the glasses, or just gives you a little pinch in the correct direction each time you reach an intersection (and press the bridge over your nose).

Couple this with a mic, so you say what you wanted to do, and it asks you every five minutes (or when you press the bridge again... you can configure it this way or the other) if you accomplished what you were set out to do. This way, when you're distracted you are constantly reminded of what you should be doing and if

sorry, i just remembered what i was supposed to be doing.

       I rarely forget things I am excited about, or am anxiously anticipating. I only forget things I'd really rather not do. So I guess I would need a set that would stimulate my brain into thinking the thing I am not doing is actually a thing I like to do, and then I would not forget to do it. Or not.

       Obviously I was inspired by Scooterman and Dr. Halfbaked, which I saw as a kid exactly 30 years ago.
