Those look amazing. I can't wait until that technology is ready to be mass produced.
Augmented reality is my big hope too. There's a lot which can be done with it. It's a really open ended field. I recently purchased the Meta Space Glasses development kit so I've had some rudimentary experience moving 3D objects with my hands, blowing up orbs with my fingers, and typing on a holographic keyboard (not easy, mind you). It's pretty nifty.
Things like Google Glass are already making this happen. I can't wait for augmented reality to become both possible on a large scale and affordable. Things like guided tours of museums, with visual and audio information, would make the experience better. Concerts could use augmented reality to project literally any kind of visual effects that suits the song, and change instantly, without the need to move sets, lighting, etc. Driving, cooking, and classrooms could all benefit from having information and resources readily available without needing hands, as could nearly any profession. Shopping for cars? You could have reviews, recalls, and specs available while looking at the car, so that you don't buy a lemon. The possibilities are almost limitless.
Virtual reality, like the Occulus, could provide the experience as well, but they are limited to controlled environments rather than out in the world,which limits the applications a bit.
