Default "Cyborg" Man Assaulted at McDonalds

'Cyborg' professor claims assault at Paris McDonald's over digital glassesĀ* - NY Daily News

...freaky. His eyeglasses took photos (autonomously? I'm not sure) of the guys who assaulted him. He has a blog and posted the photos here. But Christ. If you click on the article link you can see the dude with his cybernetic implants. NIGHTMARE MATERIAL

mann seems like a really cool guy, and the technology he's working on has come a long way the past 30 years.

the mcdonalds restaurants in france are known for having horrible employees, so i'm not surprised this is where it happened. i fear as technological assistance/improvement becomes more common place this will happen a lot.

This might be a bit of a generalization, but, individuals within Paris are some of the rudest people in all of France in my opinion. It's like completely different climate compared to southern France, christ!

Eh. His equipment is a bit weird, but I am used to the weirdness, since I am customed to the "changing world"... And because of "Google Glasses". But oh man. I have never been to France (and probably never will for a long time), but they should learn to behave like real people and not mess with personal space. ;S Sure I can understand that it's freaky and had a camera that they are cautious with... Man. So much to say about this. Glad he was alright though...
