Another way to get killed -- wearable TV's

As if cell phones weren't distracting enough, now we have wearable TV's so people can have half their vision obstructed too. The device costs about $800, so of course oblivions wearing one will become prime targets for snatchers as well as more prone to walking in front of buses, driving into bridge abutments, lurching down elevator shafts, etc.

Japanese commuters can now stay tuned on crowded trains, with what's called the world's smallest wearable TV.

"Teleglass T3-F" is attached to glasses like a jeweler's eyepiece, with a remote control arm extending a mini-screen.
