CES 2010: Vuzix demo Wrap 920AR Augmented Reality visor

vuzix ar visor.jpgAugmented reality is set to be massive this year, with smartphone apps the likely first stop off point for most. But holding up your iPhone’s camera is a bit rubbish compared to the Vuzix Wrap 920AR Augmented Reality Visor. Now you too can see the world just the same as Robocop did!

According to Vuzix: “users can view the real-world environment and computer-generated imagery seamlessly mixed together; allowing video game characters to jump out of the TV and come to life in your living room, or magazines and books with animated links back to the web in real time.”

In other words the world around you gets overlaid with maps, Facebook profiles, timetables, review, prices and more if you’re wearing these specs.

Keep a robotic eye out for this in the Spring, expected to cost around £500.

A little off topic, but anyone agree that Robocop was the most violent film of all time? Sorry, just a case of CES-induced madness kicking in…
