There are some research programs which have drivers wear a cap that lets you drive your car and control phone, messages, email, gps, and potentially other devices by thought.
 
Its happening, and the potential is huge.  I'm too old to expect to be around by the time its practical, but the idea is something we have thought about for a hundred years or more.
 
Companies are positioning themselves to be able to take advantage of the technology with relatively simple current gadgets.  Control of the playstation by thought?  Its going to happen!

Wouldn't a driver gets fined excessively for wearing such a cap, because it keeps the driver occupied with lots of things other than driving?

In many countries people do get into real trouble for actions like eating pizza, being on the phone, using SMS, writing e-mails, checking a calendar and drinking all at the same time as someone is driving. Judging from the initial reactions to Google's glasses there is quite a lot of opposition to overcome, before consumers can finally make use of integrated devices like what you describe effectively. The future may be not so bright.

Its not going to happen soon, but the basic research is underway. 
 
Your issues are valid ones, but its going to happen, and obviously, it will be tested and used in non critical applications first.
 
There are already devices like this for the handicapped that let them do simple things that they could not do before.

Aha. A whig. Not a mobile phone. Or a helmet.
Where is the news?
A few ideas, heard them before.

Its a patent, so it now has legal status.  That's different from a idea.  Dick Tracy was wearing a wrist watch phone in the 1940's comics and later upgraded to video, but it could not be patented until it could be made to work.

Dear Mt. Spokane!
Didnt want to be offensive.
But I miss the news.
The implementation in a (........) is not something that pulls my shoes off.
And a thing I always find very suspicious: in the article the things it can do are repeated a little bit to often.

I lately read an article about how they could read your thoughts by an MRT- that was new, and a bit frightening.
Best wishes, and always good light

Pretty soon we'll be able to do whatever we like while in the car...because the car will be driving itself. Quite likely within the lifetimes of those self-proclaimed old bald guys posting in this thread, we won't even be allowed to drive our cars. The benefits of this will be huge. We'll be mobile until we're 110+, navigation will be handled as will parking and so on. We'll be free to wear any kind of glass, Sony wig, or unforeseen enhancements and best of all, we'll be able to safely take photos out of the drivers side window in fast moving heavy traffic. Bring it on.
