Yup, the new 24/7 alibi! We're all going to need one sooner or later

Do you really think it will come to this? Did you happen to read the news story of the man that was wearing his "camera glasses" in a McDonalds in Paris and was accosted by some employees there? Do you think these types of glasses (or the equivalent) will someday be the norm? If so, what does this do for society? Will it make people more tolerant, more "honest", knowing that their every action is documented?

Is this hyperbole, or do you sincerely think it's in our best interests to have a 24/7 alibi?
