Amazing technology ! But i see it as a possible breach in are private lives too , as this gadget interacts with what we want it also can collect that
info too, also another thought is that the camera could be used to track and photograph everything you do or who you meet ! I personally would not
want to use one unless their is a safe guard against what is being collected or transmitted
my 2 cents worth
Yeah I watched the video and I dont personally know anyone who would wear a projector.
I would never have thought that someone ever would wear Coco Channel sunglasses. Humans are open for anything, even for carrying around projectors.
Takes less place the a laptop, is a stupid and serves same purpose what is to become a sucker of the modern establishment.
Reminds me Rockefeller when he said "people will not fight against it, people will sit on there knees and beg to get it".
This technology is really not that far fetched or futuristic.
Microsoft's Kinetic for the Xbox 360 is basically the "camera" function of this without the projector, it can take all your motions and the
environment around you with incredible detail.
Cloud computing is nothing really new. Google is close to coming out with products that can solely use cloud computing to access its "Google Docs"
and other features. Chrome is meant to be able to expand to provide these features.
The Microvision mobile projector is slightly bigger than an iphone and its projection capabilities are way beyond that of what was demonstrated.
I'm not gonna lie, I just don't like the implementation. Projectors are inherently ugly because the surfaces they project on are not perfect. I
think a better option would just be glasses with a built in retinal camera and some kind of display technology like a HUD and such.
No one wants to be walking down the street waving there arms like a moron just trying to dial a phone. Hell, OCZ makes a neural impulse actuator that
lets you control a video game with your mind.

Sorry- when I see this sort of thing, I just see the DOWNSIDE- like EVERYONE, forcibly giving-up ALL of their privacy- because a MAJORITY of people
Sorry- AMERICA IS A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, NOT a Democracy, the WORST form of tyranny! Just because a lot of people WANT something, they cannot do
it, IF it effects ME in a negative manner!
Well certainly to some it's above their price, but the general population, hell.
Your opinion of the general population's affordability and mine differ.

I myself don't have the luxury of being able to be cell phone free. I am dependant on communications as I work in communications.
I can see how this device would make my life far easier too, hell I could work from home full time with something like that. I could do that now, but
at least I would not be confined to an office.
I haven't heard any pros from you yet Spartan .
It is not that I necessarily want to not have a cell phone, I do, but the dependence of living with one always attached at my hip, with hands-free was
just as much a nusiance as it was something which kept me in touch.
Yeah, so can I, my first hands-free let me walk about my apartment, do dishes, and yack with friends, while multi-tasking all over the place.
I miss that.
But, I do not miss the $100 a month cost, nor the constant charging.
And while I know the positives, you're not likely to hear many from me.
At least not about technology, because I look into the positives, remember them, but focus on the negatives, and understand their implications.
Personally, this is not "the best and brightest" technology out there, it's old.
As far as technology goes, Government, Military, and Law Enforcment are 5, 10, or 20 years ahead of this, at all times, and I have seen that tech.
I read Science-Fiction on top of keeping up with Popular Science.
Gene Roddenberry had the "flip-phone" with Captain James T. Kirk's communicator, back when he originally wrote the books, prior to Star Trek
ever hitting mainstream.
I know far, far more about the upcoming technology, so this is tame to me.

You are correct.
All of this "new technology" is designed around one over all purpose.
To make us want to keep up with the "Jonese" and not consider the real cost.
Our physical freedoms, as well, the technology corporations are assisting Government, in side-stepping our Constituional protections completely.
With each new device, a small bit of the Constitution is shredded, piece by piece.

Neither am I.
The cell phone went from a cord, for hands-free, to a cordless hands-free, the next in line for that is them drilling into our jawbones, and
implanting a device.
It operates via sonic vibrations of the jawbone and is internal within our jaw and ear, connecting with a team-speak, similar to what gamers are using

If that is how it's done, that aspect was never discussed, that I am aware of. Wow, "brain implant" was just sort of shoved under the rug until the

Always a catch!
There is always a catch.
They will implant something within my brain when I am cold and dead in the ground.
you need to watch some movies like 1984 , Fahrenheit 451 Equilibrium ,

How long will NSA CIA FBI will Encourage you to use/buy one so they can intercept your actions of the device ! shown by the OP!!
Hey tothetenthpower I didn’t mean to be bagging you. I had intended to point out that the tech will have already moved on from this. I can only
imagine what sort of cool gadgets we’ll get in future.
I do definitely think there is a huge risk for privacy with more tech being worn my more people, however we already know that most of our online
communication (is there any other sort these days ) is either actively monitored even if only for marketing purposes, or can be actively monitored
by numerous authorities and or more nefarious organisations.
I think people will become more savvy with this sort of technology. If you look at the new Iphone OS4 it now has multitasking for 3rd party apps (I
know other phones had this earlier). When I read this I immediately thought wow, now all somebody has to do is slip a program with GPS tracking past
apple and heaps of people can be tracked and not know it because it’s a background task on the phone. Apple obviously saw this too and now there is
a little arrow that shows up when something is using the GPS. I would expect to see more of this sort of thing in future, like modern PC firewalls
that control outbound traffic as well as incoming.
Sure somebody will get hacked, but it will be fixed before most people are affected. Although there is still a question of trusting the vendor, sure
they will publicly protect their reputation, but will they offer restricted access to backdoor type tools like Microsoft does today? They offer police
departments access to their cofee tool, basically a collection of cracking tools put into a convenient bundle. They say this won’t have backdoor
access to their encrypted filesystems etc, but it would be pretty useless unless it does. So who do you trust then?
George Lucas has stated that many historical events have been used in the Star Wars saga, for example, that the Empire was based on Nazi Germany. The
stormtroopers from the movies share a name with the Nazi stormtroopers (see also Sturmabteilung). The imperial officers' uniforms also resemble some
(historical) German Army uniforms (see Waffen-SS). In addition, some World War II terms may have been used for names in Star Wars; examples include
the planets Kessel (a term that refers to a group of encircled forces) and Hoth (Hermann Hoth was a German general). The Great Jedi Purge alludes to
the events of The Holocaust. In addition, Lucas has said that he modeled Palpatine and his rise to power after such historical dictators as Julius
Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler. Furthermore, Darth Vader's helmet shares a similar appearance with the German Army helmets of World
a nice site ( SKL you need to check this out ) talking about exposing a rip off from Older Movies ! juts like James Cameron Avatar is was
Princess of mars Animation made in the 30s right down to the panther like beast with 6 legs in princess of mars it had 8 and was like a panther
The 8 legged Panther beast at the 1.19 mark of this video
I have always Thought that In some movies that there is hints of partial Truths hidden predictions to thing to come ..
probably the most accurate of those Half truths is the ending of a movie called Long Kiss Goodnight the prediction of the ( 911 ) Movie made
in 1996 5 years before 911 another maybe stretch is Oil Rig Disaster in the Movie Knowing coincidence could be the Real Grasping is the
way older Movies !
well some of Authors Writers Dreams became a reality from the day dreams of soon to be Engineer & Inventors that read those books that made
them a reality !
Here you Go ATS Members Dream Away
Science Fiction to Science Faction the Ideas from Scifi Writers that be came REAL!!! or close to it ! one Reality the Satellite
This is an amazing change to the input device thats for sure!!! found out about this in 2011
Have you guys heard of IR-Web/Toltec and iCAML? Its the next level of this type tech and is also claimed to be the future of the internet(NextGen) PRV and the IR-Web
