This Is What Google Glasses Could Have Been

Google's glasses were a little bit of a let down for those of us who wanted a true head-up display. This video, however, depicts a fictional future where the head-up display powers all our digital lives—and it's equal parts awesome and terrifying.


Called Sight, this short was put together by Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo, as a graduation project at Bezaleal academy of arts. It shows off a world where the only display required is embedded in a contact lens—which makes an empty room a playground and every activity a game.

It's a thought-provoking little video and, given the way things turn out, maybe we should be thankful that Google Glasses don't offer true HUD just yet. [Vimeo]



Here's what I want to know. The does it work from a contact lens? I mean, I know it's just a fictional film, but still, technologically speaking, how?
