Technology hype - update

The April 18th blog entry, 'Technology Hype', noted the "Brazilian RoboCop glasses" report making the rounds of the 'net and called "shenanigans" on the story... Some of the details such as the 12 mile range seemed very unlikely to this blogger, even if the piece was reprinted uncritically by hundreds of 'serious' web sites.

Well, apparently the folks over at the Singularity Hub also thought the reports a bit hyped, and so they checked up on it. See 'Brazilian “RoboCop” Security Goggles Over-Hyped, We’ve Got the Real Facts for the real scoop (note: the 12 miles and 400 faces a second don't pass the smell test...)
