Lasers make everything better, even wigs, which is why Sony has filed a patent for a device that is a wearable computer that looks like a wig. It’ll be GPS equipped with a camera and laser pointers all controlled by the wearer’s head movements. The idea is to give people another wearable tech alternative besides a bulky smartwatch or Google Glass. This all sounds like a great plan, until you consider the problems posed by an unexpected gust of wind that could send your SmartWig flying down the street.

Why Sony would think “wig” instead of some sort of clip-on device for hats is beyond me.
