Re: Google Glass and it's effect on sailing

Well, a pretty basic 737 was landed on Cabiniss Field about 4.5 miles from its destination Corpus Christi international. The physical differences between the airports is sufficient that someone looking out the window would say "Uh oh". But the fact remains electronic navigation systems have reduced errors over the last three or four decades, and more is in store.
But for plain old sailboats (POSs?) one of those helmets would be worth more than the boat, so instead of sailing, we would go out computing?
