The navigation with head up display is nice :-) Phone screen is too small.

@t.alex: The navigation with head up display is nice :-) Phone screen is too small.

But now imagine the same thing as the "heads-up display" projected on the car windscreen, but without having the heads-up display -- instead thsi information is projected directly onto your retina...

Taking the example of the illegible road sign in a foreign country,  I would like the augmented reality delivery system to super impose on the road sig itself, 

Which means I do not have to look elsewhere , it just virtually apperas where the road sign is!

Is that possible?

Not today in real-time -- but I really believe that this type of capability is coming -- I think the way it will work is that you will look at a sign and see it in it's original language, then if you say "translate" the system will know what you are looking at ant it will replace the original sign with the translated version.

Or maybe you will set "translate" as the default, in which case everything you see (text-wise) would appear to be in your native language.

I think that what is to come will really blow our socks off (which is why I've stopped wearing them LOL)
