Gadget Expo Showcases the Digital Life

Interesting technology being displayed by the people from Microvision’s Nomad Display Systems. Intended for both military and business use, Nomad is the world’s only wireless wearable computer with a head-worn, head-up display.

When you put it on you see an amazingly sharp monochrome (in this case red) picture right in front on your face. It could be contain still or moving pictures. It could show soldiers a map or floor plan of a location they need to visit. Or, it could show a car repair expert the layout under the hood while they’re working on the vehicle – and then switch to a video of how to remove (or install) a particular part. Very cool.
