    Default Google Unveils "Google Glass"

    A few days ago, Google unveiled some details about "Project Glass", their long-term augmented reality project.

    Pretty cool stuff.

    So anyone here watched Dennou Coil?

    Dennō Coil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Coil — A Circle of Children, is a Japanese science fiction anime television series depicting a near future where semi-immersive augmented reality (AR) technology has just begun to enter the mainstream. The series takes place in the fictional city of Daikoku, a hotbed of AR development with an emerging city-wide virtual infrastructure. It follows a group of children as they use AR glasses to unravel the mysteries of the half real, half Internet city, using a variety of illegal software tools, techniques, and virtual pets to manipulate the digital landscape.
    Quite surprised actually at how time just seemed to fly by from that Anime to this current prototype.

    Still I am quite excited about this, but at the same time having reservations about the whole thing due to the obvious current downsides..

    But to be quite honest, the blur between reality and virtual life will become even more blurred with this.

    It's like science fiction. Could you imagine this ever being created a few decades ago?

    It seems awesome, but it sounds like there could be some dangers with the project. Can't wait to hear more.
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    Despite the numerous downsides to this, I'm very excited about this. I'm just too much of a sci-fi nerd not to be.

    But darn those downsides:
