Heh I love stuff like this.
Thanks to my friend Amy Barnabi!
When Clay Haight was 8 years old, his grandfather bought him a book that explained how things were made and how to repair everyday appliances. He caught the bug and has been fascinated with making ever since. He’s tried his hand at electronics, robotics, and other DIY projects, many of which he found in Make: magazine.
Clay’s DIY “Google Glass” uses the sensors on the Arduino Esplora along with the Arduino LCD screen and a 3D printed frame. He can use voice commands to bring up a calendar with his schedule, local maps, and temperature and weather info. A headband on the back keeps it from tilting to one side.
What is happening here is the components are becoming very cheap to make and they can interface with each other via software. The result is what I have been saying for a few years. The Internet is going to empower the creative. This kid can make a difference because not only can he build this, but he can also send the instructions around the world for free.
(so how do you keep this child interested in school when he is forced to learn about things that are on the test?)
