    If they replace the projector with something that could work on a fairly non-intrusive pair of glasses (which does not seem far fetched in a couple of decades), then you'de have something very nice indeed. It will be especially useful when interacting with new people, like at the end of their demo.
    I was thinking this as well they had something like that on Appleseed Exmachina and it rocked.. except the whole we'll turn you into zombies part.

    I agree with your statements.

    I just think it would be easier to just scroll through an PDA or phone instead. Quicker, more efficient, and look at lot less dumb (in public). Besides do you really want to project your personal pictures onto a wall? I wouldn't... There where some obviously great ideas though, like the bookstore, and the wristwatch, and the grocery store items.

    That whole finger-picture thing was rockmysocksoffawesome.
    See, and some people think bluetooth looks dumb because people aren't physically holding their phone to their ear. I'm sure people who walked around with walkmans looked dumb at first too. 'Why can't you just listen to music at home like the rest of us?' You'll be the old man complaining about how back in the day we drove ourselves everywhere! And used gasoline to drive our vehicles!

It'll make laptops look like 8-tracks, and Iphones look like CDs.
    I was simply referring to iPhones because they are the well known "advanced phone." I don't have an opinion of them because I have not used one.

    Personally I wouldn't get implants until necessary, like when humans will be required to become cyborgs when machines actually start threatening. Or when the advantages of having an implant would be overwhelming.

    Um, the name DigitalMethod doesn't equate to nothing.
