We’ve all been there. You misplace an item, but you know damn well you left it on a shelf. You can see it in your mind’s eye. It’s frustrating, but a new device from Japanese scientists looks like it can help.
The Smart Goggles use sophisticated object recognition software. With a mounted webcam, the Goggles will recognize specific objects and save a few seconds of footage. So, when you lose your car keys, the goggles will just bring up a video of the last time the object was seen. Sure, you wouldn’t want to wear it all the time. It’s not practical. However, for those suffering from memory loss or Alzheimers, this could be very helpful.
