02:04 am - Impressive sounding new interface [Notes on the Acceleration]
It's always difficult to predict what new tech will actually become both practical and popular, but this interface looks very tempting indeed. Combine a wrist band or neck band and augmented reality glasses or contacts and you have a full function mobile interface. Of course, I have yet to see any AR glasses commercially released - I suspect that current models give users whanging headaches and won't be released to the general public until this is fixed (perhaps in this version - it's far too early to tell). In any case, a high-end mobile, bluetooth wristband interface, some simple voice controls (of the sort already found on Android phones and tablets) and bluetooth AR glasses = the sort of AR that one sees in much SF. I'd love such a rig, but might easily end up walking into lamp posts.

How do you keep AR from interfering with reality when it is used on the street? This could be dangerous, as someone could walk in front of a speeding car because they didn't see it.
