Wearable Display Legend Steve Mann gets Attacked at Paris McDonald's
Steve Mann is calling the internet for help getting attention from McDonald's. According to a blog post by Dr. Steve Mann (former MIT professor), his Digital Eye Glass system got destroyed by employees at a McDonald's restaurant in Paris. Steve Mann wears his wearable glasses basically permanently sincd 34 years. Apparently they did not like to be recorded. Steve Mann posted some photos of the attackers the glasses recorded.
The system shown in the photo above, Steve Mann is wearing since 13 years. Augmented reality got hip again with the new Google Glass project. Looks like Google will have to attach a warning sign to Google Glasses: "Do not wear in McDonald's Restaurants."
Steve Mann just wants his expensive custom augmented reality glasses fixed and McDonald's needs to pay for it.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
