Remember Google Glass? We haven't heard too much about it lately. That's probably because of how silly most people look when they strap on a pair. Sony's trying to compete with Google Glass by making the tech a bit more adaptable.

Instead of having to wear a pair of Sony's new "smart" glasses, the company hopes to let customers attach them to any normal pair of glasses. That means that if you wear the glasses for a specific purpose, then you won't have to be seen in public with the weird camera attachments strapped to your face.

One of the biggest problems with wearable technology is the risk of looking silly. I know that I wouldn't walk around with a pair of Google Glass frames strapped to my head at all hours of the day.

My concern is whether or not Sony's next-gen wearable tech will deal with the massive privacy issue of having a camera strapped to your glasses.
