Steve M. sends in a great video reminiscent of "Minority Report" that deals with wearable technology capable of interacting with the wearer in real time and imparting useful information and communications about our surroundings. The argument here is that the tech does nothing more revolutionary than your present cell-phone. However in truth, the cell is not real time. One must stop and interface with the device. But if your tech were real time, gave you functions, features and information pertinent to your environment and was interfaced with natural gestures, you start to see where these researchers are heading and what our near future tech will operate like.
