Our Cyberpunk World: Your New Cyberpunk Mirrorshades

The article: CES 2011: Your new cyberpunk mirrorshades (BoingBoing)

I've been saying since Layar became big on the iPhone last year that the one thing still lacking in 2010 that would make augmented reality popular was the right goggles. Guess what? Now they're here! And with Lady Gaga's paid endorsement!

These new Polaroid-branded sunglasses contain a camera to take pictures with and a display with which to view them. Only one thing is needed to make it useful, and that's AR. Once they converge, what was still future technology when I bookmarked in the early '00s will become a reality at last. You can be sure of one thing: Bruce Sterling will be keeping track of it here.

You can take a look at the announcement at CES 2011 here:
