    The device its self is amazing, but I am truly impressed by the variety of software that the team working on this has put together. This device seems to demonstrate the power of augmented reality to change the way we work with computers in many aspects of daily life. I can't wait to see what is done when it goes open source.

    The future of this kind of technology I think will be based more on glasses with built in displays rather than projectors though. Both will be important, but it seems that the privacy, as well as stereoscopic 3D in glasses will make them much more practical.

    This post is very informative. This guy is a genius! This article about him at MIT Technology Review. Opportunities for this technology are endless, just imagine what it could do in medicine, only by examining patients' medical information can immediately get information about drug allergies or conflicts without lug around a computer. :)

    A boon for many obvious reasons. An inevitable headache for legislators who have already argued over laws for texting and driving. For example, someone's going to put your GPS on your windshield, and the rest you know.
