You put on the display glasses, and your field of
view is filled with
you. From a different angle.
By connecting to a battery and wireless receiver in
a belt pack, your glasses can stream the video
of any one of several cameras pre-positioned in the
area. Put a few of them around your
and switch between them as you walk from room to
room. Perhaps get creative, and mount a
wide-angle camera on a boom so it's positioned
behind your back for the videogame style "third
person view". Wish you were a little bit taller? Try
the helmet mount. Or just hold one in each
hand and pretend you're the Pale Man.
Advanced features include stereo streaming for 3D
and proximity based automatic camera
switching, with an option to superimpose multiple
video streams with relative strengths
determined according to the distance to each
camera for a "cross-fade" effect.
||so you want to be a peeping tom ... on yourself?
I guess that's ONE application for it.
||Isn't this enough of a 'me me me' culture already?
||Au contraire. This would enable you, for perhaps the
first time, to see things from a completely different
point of view.
||It's like a third-person perspective video game. If you could
arrange for the camera to follow you, it might be a useful
training tool, like for athletes, dancers, and physical
therapy. You'd be able to watch your movements without
the hindrance of a stationary mirror.
||I wish I were taller, says the pig.
||There's enough narcissism as it is.
||//There's enough narcissism as it is.//. I agree that most
people are too narcissist. But this idea could be about ME!
[+]. A change of perspective could actually be good for
some people - it might do them some good to see how
other people see them.
||Makes me think of an electronic Ceiling Cat...gives a new meaning to "third person shooter"
||Ceiling Cat is watching you halfbake.
