We reported about the MIThril wearable technology project at the MIT BorgLab in September. Back then it was about a Context Aware Mobile Phone.

Now another application of the MIThril concept is making headlines - So called Memory Glasses.

Mr. DeVaul a student at the MIT, has invented what he calls Memory Glasses: a small computer display mounted on eyeglass frames and wired to a lightweight computer that can flash reminders to the wearer, without distraction or interference with day-to-day activities. The wearable computer system cues the user with subliminal messages or images that would flash on the screen. The prompts would be too quick for the wearer to notice, but the brain would still recognize them and respond. See his published paper for more details.
