Immersive Invisble AI Everywhere

Wow, a word of hidden AI devices everywhere. Small AI wearables.

This video really sparks the imagination.

I could see it built into something like the new meta glasses, but I find this particular embodiment a little gimmicky.

What I like about this “pin” implementation, is that I could probably stick it on my trucker hat (or baseball hats) without wearing the nerdy glasses.

Or have the ability to move it anywhere, like put it in the windshield of my car while driving, on its own little stand.

He would probably balk at the glasses idea, because he was mocking the VR goggles. I think VR goggles are cool, but so dorky and impractical for most people. :nerd_face:

The “pin” reminds me of the early days of FitBit. I had the first gen FitBit back in the day, and used it for years.

It also came with this a cloth sleeve so you could track your night activities.

pfft, that is yesterday’s tech
embrace the future

You first! :rofl:

Brain implants just sound so far out there and crazy. I don’t want to be the guinea pig.

But Neuralink, at least now, is starting these implants for treating different conditions and ailments, not general AI stuff.

Plus, the 6 year study has only started, and approval will take at least 10 years before going primetime.

I’m personally a big believer in the glasses paradigm, having to raise my hand seems like a lot of effort

I’m talking about these from Rayban and Meta


My only beef with the Meta/Rayban’s is I can’t stand to wear styles that let in light from the sides. So I have these big wraparounds that solve this. If they could fit this into these frames, that would be cool, but I still want my sunglasses to function, without excessive refraction or light coming into my eyes from odd angles.

Here are two examples of what I own (and wear) but think would make a better platform, and have even bigger beefier frames to fit more circuits into.

Oakley Flight Jacket’s:

Blenders Exposé

So if the tech was diversified to these types of frames, I might be interested.

Sunglasses are so individualized, you’d hope that if the “sunglasses AI” ever took off, they would expand to other frames and brands.

Can you tell I am a sunglasses snob? :rofl:

What about the Lyra glasses or Sirius goggles, coming out in the next few months. They provide an Augmented Reality experience through a Heads Up Display (HUD) projected onto the lens for you to see. (ref)

It’s doesn’t look like the Rayban/Meta glasses have a HUD or any AR stuff going on. :thinking: You’d think that would be a mandatory feature. :interrobang:

That’s a good point, I’d need to check up on it. I thought I’d seen some demo of it where there was a display being projected, but I totally could of imagined it.

I don’t think you imagined it. The marketing videos showed a fake AR overlay in the video of the guy taking a picture. But I’m pretty sure this is a fake overlay, and not coming from the hardware in the glasses.

Also, looking at the specs and the blog for FaceBook.

Note: "Ray-Ban Stories are an essential building block toward true AR glasses "

So they aren’t AR glasses yet, at least in this iteration, they are a building block towards AR glasses. :confused:

I’m just hoping that they have some form of display capability, else it’s a gopro.

Let’s just hope we can always turn it off! :wink:


Exactly! Then sensors they have are video/camera, microphone for video and “Hey Meta” to activate the transcription into AI (probably over your phone, BTW, not sure). They also have these funky speakers near the ear section along each side of the frame, to hear music.

So basically, a weird mishmash of voice activated AI, video and picture taking and streaming and sending this data to your FaceBook profile, hence the “Stories” name I guess, and listening to music.

The AR part requires more tech and more AI, which you can see in the demo videos for the Sirius/Lyra stuff above. Where the person is walking in the street and getting nav arrows, or snowboarding/skiing and getting nav arrows and other data streamed into the viewport.

I guessing the Meta version just wasn’t ready for primetime. But why? I mean this tech is SO OLD. I remember in my snowboarding days wanted to get the Recon Instruments / Zeel Optics goggles with AR.

Here is a 13 year old video showing this new tech off :rofl:

My original spark and thought when starting this thread, is that you could use this tech to record / analyze / embed / retrieve basically all your experiences, video/audio, all embedded and “recalled” at a moments notice.

Maybe I’m too ambitious, but this is totally possible. One of the projects I have on the back-burner is to create this great recording/embedding system that you can interact with, off of either live text inputs, or through uploaded transcribed audio. Video is tougher but around the corner.

But to record all your memories in real-time, streaming into a database, or saved and periodically dumped in, would be insane! Then throw in the interaction (RAG) layers in, OH MY GOD :scream:

100%, Google glass is not exactly a new tech, perhaps there was a price point being attempted… but then why use Rayban… It does seem, like you say, a mishmash.

The killer app is stylish lightweight frames, with possibly prescription lenses, some form of high resolution projection system and perhaps also some form of auto darkening LCD tech for the sun glasses part and then include the video and audio aspects along with a GPS and cellular modem. If a manufacturer manages that… you have the next iPhone moment.


Add ChatGPT and we have phone.GPT? I wonder how much work modern phones can do on their own to help with latency and what-not…

ETA: Or maybe Wearable.GPT…


I could see a light 7B model working… maybe a 70B in 12-24 months, I think with 5-6G and more compute in server racks this is the ideal use of an API system, you remove the need for high power compute locally where battery life is paramount.


I agree from the hardware side that would be one of those iPhone moments.

But what if all your data was also uploaded / analyzed / retrieved with 100% privacy (yeah, I know, maybe this is where Blockchain comes in?). But when you also mine, harvest, and organize all that data for “memory retrieval”, then WOAH.

Imagine mixing in this data from your past, and have “expert systems” analyze the data … it could Monday Morning Quarterback you to death, or be some good lessons on how to improve yourself. It could also be entertaining, like “Historical Figure X” would have done that instead if they were in that situation. I can imagine these being so imaginative, entertaining, precise memory recall, or fuzzy made-up history for fun.

But I think mining and shaping your personal data like this would be insane.
