As advances in computer technology make gadgets ever smaller and more portable the idea of carrying a screen of any kind could soon be outdated.

Consumer products with screens have dropped in size from computer to laptop to tablet via phone.

But one company specialising in cutting edge visual technology waIsraeli company Lumus has shown off the PD-18-2, which may look like a cumbersome pair of shades but allow the user to see high-quality images while they walk.nts to beam information directly into your field of vision.

People don't like wearing things on their face unless they have to, just a smartphone is far preferable to me. And if this really happens we'll just have so many more people walking into each other in the streets, and getting run over after veering onto the road without realising.

I don't wear glasses, my sight is fine, but when it's sunny sunglasses are OK. So if glasses could give me augumented reality, I wouldn't hesitate.

But only if it's nice weather? ;)
All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.

Now if they come up with a nude app for this or watching porn undectected. LOL

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

Google is reportedly poised to unveil a pair of Terminator-style glasses with a heads-up display that would allow users to view information on the move.

Wow... the future's coming... Things are about to get a lot more interesting. The privacy scare that we're in now is about to get a lot scarier - how long will it be before a program exists that will tell you who anyone is that is in your field of vision? There are a few ways it could be done - software that scans for other nearby mobiles or facial recognition software coupled with a logic program that determines the likelihood that such a person that looks such a way might be in such a place, then brings up a facebook profile, an eharmony match percentage, email address, telephone number, home address, you name it. That'll be the generation gap between the millennials and the next generation. The next generation of teenagers will be used to what we might call stalking people. That'll simply be how they learn about another person. They won't talk much. No need. The millennial generation will try to stop the next teenagers from broadcasting their personal information to the public network, but the far more tech-savvy next generation will be running circles around them. That being said, I want a pair. Right now. Also, did you see Motorola's device. It's over 9000!
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one

No doubt about it, augmented reality is going to be the next big social/technological revolution throughout our society and culture... by 2020 we'll be wondering how we ever lived without it.

I still think it's a novelty. There might be practical uses in the military but what we've had so far has just been a novelty.

Eh seems far off for now, this is just a peak at what Google wants to do doesn't mean they are close to achieving it.
