Perhaps Radiation Disrupting His Blood-Brain Barrier Is Also a Factor?
All wireless “Smart” wearables (activity trackers, ear buds, etc.) emit harmful electromagnetic radiation which can make people and animals sick (see 1, 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8) AND increase their cancer risk (see 1. 2. 3, 4). Research has determined that wireless exposure can even disrupt the blood-brain barrier, cause it to leak, and kill brain cells (see 1, 2). Regardless, tech companies are manufacturing and marketing all kinds of “smart” wearables including glasses like the pair worn by one journalist.
From Greenwich Time:
What do you call it when there’s a little voice in your head only you can hear? A hallucination?
Amazon calls it progress. I’ve been living with its latest talking artificial intelligence product, called the Echo Frames, for two weeks. They’re glasses with tiny speakers and a microphone so you can have your own private conversations with Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant everywhere you go.
This new version of Alexa is much more proactive about chatting – and it has driven me bananas. “WashPost,” chirped my glasses over my morning coffee to let me know about a news alert. “Outlook,” Alexa said minutes later, interrupting a real conversation with an offer to read my latest email. All day long, Alexa whispers notifications from apps into my ear: “Slack.” “Battery is at 20 percent.” “Outlook.” And more “Outlook.”
After two weeks with the $180 Echo Frames, I can report that you have to really love Alexa to want to wear it on your face. But the Frames offer a fascinating view of the state of the art in virtual assistants – and perhaps also the state of our dystopia. They’re one of Amazon’s first true “hearables”: wearable tech designed for hearing information, rather than seeing it.
Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post, but I review all tech with the same critical eye.
If this writer’s testimonial and the close-proximity radiation exposure risks aren’t distressing enough, smart devices – including wearables – also collect data on consumers often without their knowledge or consent. Jeepers Creepers – why buy such awful peepers?
