As you can see, there are a few differences, mainly, my version would use glasses which would be a projector screen and the front of the glasses would be a camera to help identify landmarks or whatever you were seeing.
I wish I could have explained it with those great accents though. Good job team.
attractive packaging – I wish it had a bigger picture
This is an idea I’ve been toying around with for a while. As you’ll see here in a fast prototype: GPS enhanced optic media device. Depending on your location, and preferences you can:
- Learn more about geographic location
- View webpages that could inform you of nearby points of interest
- Be guided to nearby restaurants
- View maps.
- Identify landmarks.
- And, of course, non location specific activities like checking Gmail messages, podcasts, musicÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ etc.
