Good mods for microphone


I think the core intention for the microphone to be able to answer calls is pretty useless since the eye wear does not have a audio source. In fact, it is quite useless if the intention of the microphone involves any audio feedback because if you need to put your phone in speaker mode, you don't need a microphone to begin with right?


Instead, I think if there is a mod that enables speech to text, it could help translate foreign language into text that you can view on your glasses. Other than this, I can't think of any usefulness of the microphone. The glasses could be better off without the feature or replace it with something else.

With some of the other smartglasses on the market, the microphones had to compensate with being ultra-sensitive. For phone calls, they are completely useless if it picks up the wind when I walk and augments ambient noise. However, I would highly appreciate it to be able to take photos or video through a stated catch phrase determined by the user if a microphone was possible (audio with such video recording would be optimum).

However, with your expected temple touch function, verbal cues via microphone may not be necessary as long as it can appear discrete to activate. This can assist with erratic drivers, muggings, animal attacks and law enforcement.

I hoping that the mic will be used for Alexa integration, voice commands, and sound-based controls.

I know this topic is older but it would be cool too to use the microphone to identify a song and then it triggers a specific app to find the lyrics of said song. Then that would scroll with the song. Or it copies the text, puts it in the teleprompter and scrolls with the music.


Too ambitious?

    Google Maps and Waze are quite good at vehicle navigation but my experience is they are difficult to use when walking. I'd like to get feedback on a mod that shows simple navigation arrows, distances to waypoints & landmarks, points of interest, and similar meta data in a format that makes sense while walking wearing the Shima glasses. The user would start the navigation app of their choice on their mobile device and the Walkabout companion app would redirect and reformat the navigation information for the Shima glasses display. Thoughts/feedback?

    What is the license that LAFORGE is attaching to the Mod simulator? The code is basically available via glitch at the moment, but I didn't see any indications on what license the code follows. (I'm looking to fix some issues, but I don't know if I'm able to share my results until I know the licensing.)

    I wanted to see if it was possible to clarify "The Rules" (https://www.socialflo.com/rules-standards) we've been given for mods. In my opinion, it's confusing to see rules like "No web browsers" and "No eReaders, PDF viewers, Spreadsheets, or similar", while also having the first example on the same page discuss how to "steal" an idea from a web page and make it more directly visible. I can certainly understand if LAFORGE doesn't want users to have their field of vision replaced with full screens of any kind, but I'm not understanding the rules as they are written. A few hypothetical examples of why I'm confused: - I create a Mod that displays an entire text file two lines at a time. Is this "an eReader" and therefore forbidden, or have I just "stolen" the ability to digest the text in its simplest form as the website praises? - I create a Mod that shows in real-time the title of the current web page being browsed on my phone. Is that a "web browser" or "mirroring" and against the rules? - I create a Mod that shows videos in only one pane, and at only half-size. The Rules only state "no fullscreen playback of videos", so is this Mod valid or not? These are just a few ideas off the top of my head that suggest further clarification of what Mods are really supposed to be. Could someone chime in with a better summary of what LAFORGE is looking for? Thanks!
