This set of conceptual earphones are the Aura PEBL, and they have been designed for a future that centers around both Augmented and Virtual Reality. Not only can they call themselves ‘truly wireless’, but they can also say that they are unique; rather than fitting snugly into the user’s ears, they instead comfortably fit around the outside. This not only allows for an attention-grabbing design element, but also makes them far less intrusive.
The Mild VR headset is designed to look familiar. While it is a VR device, it looks like it was designed to look good while worn, and not like you strapped a toaster to your face. The Mild comes with a fabric overlay on a plastic body. Mimicking the design of eye masks, they fit comfortably over the eyes while making it look less obvious like you’re wearing a multimedia device on your head.
Since we have wrists that act as pivot points for our hands, the XBows arrange their keys in a crossbow-style radial (rather than linear) pattern using the wrists as their center. This means your hands can stay put while typing with minimal movement.
LED Lights Make Augmented Vision a Reality. University of Washington researchers have figured out how to implant semitransparent red and blue LED lights in contact lenses, for the purpose of receiving and displaying data in sharp visual images and video. This means wearers will literally be able to watch TV or view photos that are projected directly onto their eyeballs. Once miniature green LEDs are developed (and they’re in the works, as of now), full color displays will be possible.
