Sony files new patent on "SmartWig"

According to the above link, it has practical uses such as helping blind people cross the road.
I just think it looks well, a bit daft, and I hate Sony anyway.

Out of interest, RichAllen, why do you hate Sony? I have used Sony products for almost 40 years with rarely any issues.

Cool I expect Apple has already patented hair and Google own the patent on the air gap inbetween hair.

Part of the reason I hate Sony is because they make crap mobile phones that don't work, I've had 2 Sony Ericcsons on PAYG and they were both rubbish! Also, Playstation games are too easy to Pirate, years ago I had a PS1, and my little cousin persuaded me to get it chipped to buy copied games off his dodgy mate.

I'd forgotten about my Sony Mobile 3 years ago which regularly turned itself off, rebooted and froze.
Also, the USB connector for charging broke so I got that repaired under Barclays' Mobile insurance. They didn't fix it properly so they wanted to repair a second time but under their T&C if a repair wasn't fit for purpose they must offer a replacement. Thankfully they didn't have any Sonys left and sent me a brand new HTC.

I bought a brand new HTC which had a camera failure just outside the warranty period. I switched my allegiance to Samsung.
