Little did misguided, mid-century, sci-fi futurists know, but instead of commuting to work in a hovercraft, I don’t commute to work at all. I’m also still waiting for frickin’ laser blasters. Because every web worker needs to protect themselves from laptop theft.
And so it goes with wearable, visual overlay displays. Yes, they work. Kind of. And no, you can’t wear them in public. For all sorts of reasons. Which sort of defeats the purpose. Still, it seems every year at CES we see a newer, slightly better version demoed, and this year will be no different thanks to Lumus-Optical.
I think I’ll wait for the implants. Though I can’t wait to read the reports from the floor in Vegas.
