    I love wearable tech.

      Yeah, war-<verb>ing is dead . . .

      . . . but wearable tech is still pretty damn snazzy.

      Now, if only they could make a wearable with the power of a FragBook DR, I'd be a happy, happy man.

      I can just imagine it: walking along, haptic sensors controlling, say, the Doom marine, graphics displayed on a head mounted display (something like this, perhaps: http://www.emagin.com/3dvisor/ ) . . .

      Now that would be pretty damn sweet. (At least, I think it would be!)

        It's been done by some Aussie college students. Google for ARQuake.

            It seems to me that I read an article or saw something on "60 Minutes" along the lines that the US Army was testing a wearable system, complete with GPS, night vision and infared video, sensing devices, communications, etc. They were testing it at the platoon level. Is this the same thing? From what I read a soldier on a dark night could aim his weapon using an infared sensing device built into his rifle that relayed information to a receiver in his helmet giving him a headsup display of the target...just place dot "A" over top of cross hair "B' and pull the trigger...all the while staying in contact with his fellow fire team members. Sounded like a lot better system than the old M-14 that I trained with....
            I enjoy talking to myself...it's usually the only intelligent conversations I get to have.
