If you’ve ever walked into a telephone pole while staring at your phone’s map app, then Sam March’s DIY smart glasses are for you.
I think it’s fair to say that none of us know where we’re going anymore. Thanks to the proliferation of GPS technology, we no longer have to memorize the streets and layout of our city. That’s not necessarily a bad thing when you’re just driving around, but it is less than ideal when you’re walking. Aside from the potential danger of strolling into a light post, oncoming traffic, or an open manhole, staring at your phone while you walk prevents you from enjoying the sights your city has to offer. That’s why Sam March designed DIY smart glasses that unobtrusively provide turn-by-turn GPS navigation instructions.
