We've all seen what happens when technology becomes portable and connected to everything around us -- we get fatally bad driving and people walking into water fountains -- but what…

The future frightens me. Technology is just as much a poison as it is a medicine.

I don't really want much to do with the social media aspect, but I've always wanted the driving style heads up display you see motorcycle racers use and of course, the superimposed display most first person games use nowadays.

Agreed with the guest as well... lol

I can't wait until I can finally buy a fully functioning visor like Geordi from Star Trek: TNG

Poison? Medicine?

Gotta get in where you fit in and if you don't fit in anywhere then maybe the poison's what you're looking for. lol

If any company can make it work, it's Google.
This is the next step in AR. I just hope Google will be able to keep this.

This is awesome, but I don't know how you're going to select when you want to open something. Do you just look at the symbol? 'Cause that could get quite annoying, if you're looking at something in the distance and menus keep opening.

Yes, but can it detect power levels?

You need to train more, learn to sense other's power levels and let go of your technology. Embrace the good side like Vegeta, then you get to marry Bulma, but then you will get corrupted and go nuts at a world fighting tournament..

The matrix was suggestive of these things. The part where smith and agents can become anyone. Here is the spill. In the future your left eye will get an IP address and police will be able to tap in if they need to record a crime that you are witnessing or committing. No warrant needed curtesy of your patriot act.

you know, at first this made me laugh and then I thought about it. While your vision is a creepy exaggeration, it is in the right direction. The govt continues to give us more and more, and the more they want to 'help and protect' us the more they will want to make sure we're following their rules. If the govt is responsible for your healthcare, education, social security, job, income and general welfare, then you better belive they're going to want to know when you're doing something wrong.
