Augmented intensity

It’s one thing knowing where the nearest pizza joint is ... but when augmented reality has becomes the norm, it’s going to get intense. Witness this concept video by Keiichi Matsuda, complete with mode switches, Basic Life Skills tuition and even computer-assisted encouragement for those whose self-image needs some augmentation too.

If that freaked you out as much as me, take heart from this TED presentation showing SixthSense, a wearable augmented reality device that doesn't try to take over your world.

SixthSense is a concept product too—at MIT—but looks like something that we’ll see in production first … I hope.
