fabulous! but i think apple and microsoft would like to sit this one out, at least for the open source-part :D

you might want to keep in mind that these are only ideas of how technology could be used, and it would take a lot of development on many parts for everything work that seamlessly..

still, very cool concept!

Please don't make me say this again. Calling someone names will get your comment removed (and you'll get banned if it's bad enough) no matter if you're correct in the accusation.

Umm was that me? Sorry if so, im abit drunk and i dont even remember what i wrote, something about the 1st comment i think. Oh well, sorry again.

Oh i do remember and i wonder why my post gets removed while the one this fuss is about, doesn't. He commented on the video and i commented on him (apart from the vid). I won't argue about quality of our remarks nor the 'correctness', but its abit unfair to punish only me don't you think. But well honestly i don't really care and just wanna move along and continue browsing the new videos like i were before without any more of this. Eot for me (i hope).

'Open Source' ,well i cant see that lasting long when and if this technology takes off.

But give this guy credit,he really has got something fantastic here.

Just hope he doesn't sell out to one of the big manufacturers and lets them take all the credit and money.

wow i cant believe nobody has thought of this before! theres definitely huge potential

some functions of it wouldn't work as it is though. what if more than one person looks at something? nobody will be able to read his/her own projection because they will all be layered on top of each other. one thing that would be really kickass and would fix the problem would be if it projected holograms! instead of projecting boring writing and making me read shit, how about projecting a hologram of sean connery who can tell it to me!!

i would think that it would also need to provide the user with an option as to what information they see and what they don't. otherwise you would go insane with that much shit everywhere you look. especially when advertisers figure out how to exploit it. pop-ups piss me off already so i hate to think what it will be like when they leave the house.

hopefully privacy won't be an issue either... what if the pigs had access to everything we looked at? you would have to turn it off everytime you got high or are around someone getting high :(

What he's making happen in reality is things we only saw on special effects on TV shows about witches and warlocks. Just amazing how this is not only possible but happening. :O

This guy definitely has a lot of vision and cool ideas, but unfortunately, they're just that (at least for now). It's not practical to use a projector and a camera (all the different lighting and contrast problems, your hands block the light beams, tracking issues, etc...). You are effectively limited to the very narrow space directly in front of you, and even then, the situation has to be ideal. Not only that, but almost every example has to be custom coded for the interface. For example, the weather overlay on the map (that was totally staged, in case you didn't realize). Weather map graphics in newspapers vary wildly, so for that specific example to work, they had to literally custom-code the application *just* for that one newspaper graphic. Sure, it looks awesome and all, but what happens when you try it with a different newspaper? Or what happens when you are looking at an atlas in your car? Does the program try to overlay weather on top of the highway map? To summarize: These ideas are great and innovative and point towards the future, but they are just staged dreams right now. For this to really take off, they will need either direct-visual brain implants or wireless full-color contact lens displays (with wireless video links to an internet-enabled pocket computer similar to the iPhone). Just saying.

All of these future and proposed benefits from computer technology only retards and slows down the evolution of the human mind. Relying upon computers today for speed and accuracy, also slows down the human mind's evolution in the direction of the same.

These are fantastic, groundbreaking ideas that are probably taking us in the right direction if we have to use computers....right up until the part where he says "open source". I do not mean to take anything away from this brilliant work but Open source, while Idealistically perfect, has it's flaws. For instance: have any of you developers out there considered what open source really means for your jobs and your value as talented programmers in the long run? The more open source you go, the more you devalue yourselves. Heck, why would I pay for my developers if I can get it to happen for free in open source?? Wake UP! The ideology is, well, ideal. But until we go back to bartering, who the heck is going to pay your housing, food, fuel, medical, clothing, heating, cooling, drinking, and eating out bills?!?!

This video made my regain a little bit of confidence in the human race the only thing that needs to change is the projection technology. If we can we need to find a way to project a different light source that regular light does not distort then this will be like minority report pcs just amazing.
