I'd rather have VR goggles.

The wristband idea is kind of stupid.

Show of hands; who didn't expect a comment like that from NT?

On a more related note, would you (NT) care to explain why "that is nonesense"?

That's just the interface. It would be very difficult to program an interface that interacts with your brain. We're no capable of that just yet.

You're focusing too much on how silly she looks with the device on, and maybe that you don't like the interface. Instead, focus on the technology behind it.

A camera that is attached to you takes an image of something you are holding. It finds what product that image came from in its database and can give you information like:

Where to get a better deal on that product

How ecologically friendly the product is

In the case of media or hardware, it could give you the amazon rating of the product. For parents looking at games for their kids, it could give them an extended ESRB rating, or it could show them an article from 'whattheyplay.com' that talks about whether or not the game is suitable for children.

Now imagine if this same technology and infrastructure was put into use in a different way. What if instead of using a webcam, the device received images the same way that your brain does. It could take advantage of your eyesight.

What if all you had to wear was a small necklace that projected images onto surfaces?

What if there was no projector at all, and the image was fed directly to your brain?

You guys aren't seeing the POTENTIAL of this technology. You're dismissing it because she looks silly, and you don't want to wear green fingertips.

That would suck.

Agreed on your last post, and she even mentioned that their still trying to make it look better and make it smaller or whatever. For me, I wouldn't care if I wore the one she was displaying at all. Its BAD ASS

It was the TED conference, which is like the E3 of the tech community. not fake.

I would gladly let the government see all that I see in exchange for awesome internet sight. I don't see anything cool most of the time anyway.
