There are some projects that are so cool they send a little shiver down your spine, and for me this is one of those. It shows OpenGlass testing two Glass projects aimed at visually-impaired users.

Question-Answer allows someone to ask what an object is, receive an answer from Twitter users and then hear that answer spoken. Memento allows a sighted user to teach Glass to recognise objects, and will then tell a visually-impaired user what they are looking at … 


In one of the examples shown, Glass tells the visually-impaired user they are looking at two printers, it tells him their names and then as he gets closer warns that the laser-cutter requires care.
