While we were getting excited about Nikon's "BIG" new camera, they sneaked this under the radar:

Seems rather uncomfortable to watch a screen with just one eye for who knows how long...
Then again, we photographers use one eye to look through the viewfinder all the time. :)

Oh no, people will be wearing those while driving around here, I can see it now... It seems we're a step closer to computers actually being hardwired into our heads.

:roll: Could you please use another avatar, this one almost covers the whole page.

Sorry for going off topic...

I see people driving cars and riding their bikes with earplugs all of the time. Not with a screen in front of them though.

Just see my avatar: I'm watching you! :twisted:

I haven't heard of any of my friends being caught for it. Maybe they just didn't tell me. The problem with bigger headphones (like this, but without a screen) is that they're more easily noticed than small earplugs. I use them occassionaly, but not while riding my bike. Safety first, right? :wink:
