Elvis Costello is credited for bringing sexy back to cheap eyeglasses in the 1980s for artsy-hipster men. Lisa Loeb did her share for making cat eye frames look hot on the girl-next-door but it was not until Tina Fey sat atop her perch every Saturday night that Americans started to notice how hot a woman can look in women eyeglasses!</p>
<p>So, what else turns on Americans about discount glasses? A recent study done by Essilor of America asked more than 3,000 men and women about their perception of cheap eyeglasses and eye wear.

I've been waiting a couple of years for this sort of thing to become cost-effective. I can't wait for a Worldcon name badge with this sort of functionality!

I'm thinking Meet Market. Cozy up to a potential at the bar and find out that she/he doesn't do ???. More than likely you'd be sitting next to some old guy whose tag says Hi I'm Ginny, I'm 14....

If the formula that determined your profile were sufficiently complex it could be interesting and useful.

Maybe the world would be a better place if we randomly switched tags, and learned about our differences. Hey--we wouldn't even need tags to do that! Nah--bad for the economy.

Al Weiss gave a presentation at Walt Disney World last year about "future guest interaction" (my words not his...) He talked about the plan for about 5 years from now where a family walking around would have some sort of device that would signal the nearest Castmember (park employee) so the CM could walk up to them and know their names and hometowns and what rides they've been on. This is supposed to help the CM "assist with planning the guest's day," but it sounds a bit creepy if you ask me. I'd rather have someone ask "So where are you from?" than "Hi Carl from Atlanta, did the Tower of Terror scare you?"

The somewhat-similar Japanese gadget was called a "lovegetty."

Wow. A name tag that does the same thing any Bluetooth or IR enabled device can do. They should really corner the market until we have plenty of IR or Bluetooth devices available.

Oh. Wait.

Socially, I think this is a really nifty gadget but in and of itself, not worth much of anything in the long run. I mean, the fact that two people share a common interest or know someone in common is no guarantee that they'll get along. The fact that Joe Doakes and I both like Monty Python and poetry won't amount to anything if he's also a staunch Republican to boot.

But the fact that this gizmo strikes me as a very low-level, cheap palm-style computer makes me think that this would be great as a limited range messaging tool. I'm not that interested to find out, in the crunch of a cocktail party, that Joe Doakes is from Butte Montana and likes curling, but if we hit it off and are both stuck in the "WiFi, HiFi & SciFi: WHY?" conference, networked commiseration could be pretty cool.

It also might have a use as some sort of performance art project, but for anything I can come up with that you wouldnt need anything more complicated than a bag filled with numbers or something like that *shrugs*

I suspect the Xerox employees didn't expect to have their bathroom habits tracked. You know what happens when management starts measuring something, eventually someone would start tracking who wastes the most time in the bathroom. Or at least, they COULD. I guess you'd have to ask the Xerox employees how they felt about it.
I remember seeing early phone systems that tracked roving employees, I worked at a company that considered putting one in, way back in the early 70s. The employees wore small transponders about the size of a pager, a little radio antenna on each phone pinged the employee number, whichever phone was closest to the transponder started ringing and completed the call. I thought that was really cool.
