Head-mounted display projects directly onto the retina

This technology has huge potential: • Doctors could have live vital information of a patient in surgery • Military personnel could receive instant mission updates, environmental information like where their team mates are. • General information like weather updates, text messages, emails could be overlayed in your glasses. • View Augmented Reality information and 3D Objects live instead of thru a camera.
I’m really excited to see what types of uses we come up with in the future. View some footage of it live here.
Some more awesome work from IDEO. This time redesigning the ATM. What stands out the most for me is the transition of digital to reality, and vice versa.

Site of the Week #11 - Food Spotting (Foursquare + Kontain for Foodies)
Awesome logo aside, Food Spotting is a social sharing website & iPhone App where food lovers can snap a pic of interesting/favourited meals, and share it with it’s growing community of foodies. I’ve just heard about this the other day and maybe I’m still in the honey moon stage, but I’m loving the experience so far. It’s definitly a new way to discover delicious eats in your area.
Go check it out! I was up and snapping pics in minutes. You can see my spotted eats here as well.
