+ - Turning Down a Glass Explorer Invite

Submitted by awtbfb
awtbfb (586638) writes "An invited Explorer discovers Glass has accessibility problems and may interfere with her hearing aid and cochlear implant. There's a 30 day return period in case the accessibility barriers are insurmountable, and she was willing to try. However, Google is insisting she gamble on travel expenses to one of their three showrooms. It seems they still have customer service problems. Disclaimer: I'm related to the author."

+ - Man with quadriplegia controls robot arm with mind->

Submitted by awtbfb
awtbfb (586638) writes "Tim Hemmes, with the help of University of Pittsburgh researchers, successfully controlled a robot arm in three dimensions. He's had quadriplegia for seven years. The feat was accomplished using implanted ECoG electrodes and weeks of computer training. From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "Ever since his accident, Mr. Hemmes said, he's had the goal of hugging his daughter Jaylei." Next up are six more 30-day participants, followed by a year-long study."
