    After watching the AR Industrial video I posted, I got to thinking what if this is the new HUD we have always seen in Movies like Ironman and TV in sitcoms like when a character is trying to find a date at a bar and he starts scanning around the room with various data showing on the HUD, or like the sitcom Spin City I watched an episode the other night where Mike played by M J Fox is scanning his girlfriend and he's trying to lie to her and the choices come up on the HUD, could AR glasses finally be the HUD that we have seen SyFy for so long? Are we soon going to have smart glasses that feed us data constantly helping up make every day choices? I wonder.

    My opinion: Yes.
    Especially about your environment. If your glasses scan a noteworthy street sign, they will offer you a link. If you click on it, there will be historical data pertaining to it.
    Or if the glasses see a restaurant, they will offer hours of operation, and the menu.


    This guy built something similar several years ago, it also included a projector. I think you will like this video:

    I watched it, it's fascinating what he has invented, and that talk was back in 2009, you can only wonder how much progress has been made since then? The thing with projecting data on any given wall is intriguing but I would be concerned about others seeing it and my privacy, but otherwise it's quite intriguing and affordable concept!

    He and the idea are brilliant and making it open source, what a philanthropist, there are a few giant software companies that could learn a thing or two from this young man.

    I think I remember when Google glass first came out, talk about facial recognition that could then look up the Facebook profile of everyone you looked at and their name and a quick summary. Back then I was single and thought it would be so cool to know the relationship status of the girls I was checking out, of course that's also super creepy... I think there are a ton of privacy concerns that need to be worked out before this can ever become a mainstream thing.

    The uses are endless. I saw the videos with surgeons using Microsoft's Hololenses in the OR. It would be incredible.

    No question AR will be used in surgery and many other places where the eyes can not see as well as the AR lens can.

    I'm looking beyond AR glasses. I want AR contact lenses. The lenses would track where you are looking better than glasses and make information overlays for objects you are looking at seem more natural.
