While we're all salivating over what may be the next phase of computer interfaces in the form of the Apple tablet, we might as well look to the future of interface dynamics likely to follow: augmented reality.

If this kaleidoscope vision is indeed the future, we may all need to increase our internal RAM. Check out the video here.
