Tommygun hit the nail on the head. For a computer, yeh it looks kinda silly, but think what technology it's bringing to the street that didn't exist before. Sunglasses capable of 3d display for example and projecting virtual objects into the real world for the wearer. For example, you'll be able to run around on a football pitch, playing football with an imaginary ball, which only you can see, which when you kick it gives you the boot of a soccer god. Sure, you're gonna look like a complete plonker, but think of the other things you could project into your reality Believe me, that's round the corner.

Dr. Michiu Kaku visited Dubai last week and we were lucky enough to have him as a special guest on our Morning Show.

WOW!

We're talking about these computer screens and what they mean for the future....[&:]...HA! He's been to Ft. Benning with his film crew to see the next gen technology, and actually used it.

Forget sunglasses. Contact lenses that can show you the entire battle field scenario in real time. Friends, foes, air support, incoming artillery shells, etc. All on your eye ball. And that technology is already in place and going through real world tests.

He recons that within 10 years, you'll be able to walk down the street in Hong Kong, have someone speaking in Mandarin to you and on your contact lenses you'll see what they said to you in English sub titles.

Simply blink your eye in a certain way and bang, you've moved to the next web page that's showing on your contact lenses.

I dont see how a contact lens can even work... where would the battery go? And the other non-transparent electronics?

Have no idea how it would (does) work, I'm just passing on what he said. [&:]

Agreed, it does boggle the mind though.
