"There are no bad ideas -- just bad timing."

Interesting, and often right, but not always. Here are some bad ideas that spring to mind in random order

-        Ctrl-Alt-Del

-        Really thick heavy text books for students

-        The first Mac portable which weighed 20 lbs

-        Amazon drone delivery

-        Pop-up ads

-        4 inch high heels

Re: Sony
I see the benefit.  I got to personally demo Sony's Smarteyeglass earlier this year, and it was neat.  The industrial use is very clear, as the glasses can be used to recognize objects and give realtime instructions.

Although I can't imagine wearing those for a full shift.  I'd get tired of looking at the text displays.

Re: No Gee Whiz Factor Here
@Technocrati: The flaw in the technology -- as was the flaw with many regular beepers back then -- was that it allowed you to send anonymous messages that weren't time-stamped.

So it got into my head to have some fun with dear old dad and spend a week sending him repeated messages that said "LOW BATTERY".

(Sometimes I sent messages that said "L W BATTERY" to make it look like the display was fading.)

Re: Sony

@ Joe    Interesting point regarding Augmented reality glasses.   I know of some who are spending considerable time on this new frontier and after they achieve their lofty dream of incorporating this technology in their endeavors - the response will more than likely be ....." this is cool, not particularly useful - but cool."

 

But at least this particular engineer can act as if he is really doing something "useful" in the meantime.

"... Would it be better to make it into a valuable add-on for iPhone?"

@Li Tan     I would think so - IMO that is the problem of being known as an innovator - you are forced to "innovate" whether it makes sense or not.

Re: Sony
I am willing to see how iWatch will improve in its next generation. Many people blame that iWatch must rely on iPhone. But I am thinking does it even make sense to make iWatch into a standalone product? Would it be better to make it into a valuable add-on for iPhone?

Re: Sony
My dad has a saying: "There are no bad ideas -- just bad timing."

Google Glass, for its part, was probably ahead of its time.  (The product did serve as a PR coup, at least, for Google.)

Augmented reality glasses -- ones that have been around longer than Google Glass -- have recently started to get more attention for enterprise/industrial use.
