DOC PRE­SCRIBES GOOGLE EYES

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

JAMES Bond may have Q to fix him up with his high-tech giz­mos, but the peo­ple of north Lon­don have one bet­ter: op­tometrist David Fleis­chmann.

Now reg­is­tered as a ‘Google pre­ferred’ pro­fes­sional, he’ll soon be deck­ing out the masses with the lat­est in com­puter gad­getry, the Google Glass.

De­signed like a reg­u­lar pair of specs, al­beit with a Robocop- es­que “op­ti­cal head-mounted dis­play” fixed to the side of your head, the de­vice re­quires pre­scrip­tion lenses and a pro­fes­sional fit­ting. En­ter Fleis­chmann.

“We are at the start of a revo­lu­tion in wear­able tech­nol­ogy, but it is im­por­tant that peo­ple use it com­fort­ably and safely,” he said. So we agree: best to be shaken, not stirred.
