Augmented reality: will it turn the future into a game?

Google Glass is only the very first, very clunky stab at a future where our entire reality is augmented by electronics. We're already working on contact lenses with built-in displays, and it really is just a matter of time until such technology becomes the norm. This concept video explores that future, only it takes a slightly sinister turn.

While some of the stuff that you'll see in this concept vid from Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo at the Bezaleal Academy of Arts is a little bit implausible, most of it (excepting the actual display) is either in existence now or is very near-term. Things like intelligent object recognition, networking household objects, and emotion detection from facial expressions are all possible to do with current technology. Getting that technology into our eyeballs is going to take a little bit of work, which means that first, you'll probably see it in a form much like Google Glass, except way, way better.

The vid is about seven minutes long; check it out below.
