      TechBits: technology & the human body

      Wearable tech is getting bigger- and that could be annoying for people who are not actually using it. {}Gadgets worn like watches have caused some people to become annoyed, when they thought their friends were impatient and constantly checking the time.

      Google Glass is also posing some problems with people thinking Glass users are talking to them, when they're giving voice commands to the head-mounted computer. {}Google Glass users can also look like they're staring at people- when they're just concentrating on the display.

      Tech that works with the human body also has the potential to be dangerous. {}A recent Washington Post article says Dick Cheney once had his doctor shut down the wireless control on his pacemaker, because he was afraid terrorists would use it to try to kill him.
