BBC NEWS | 'Laser vision' offers new insights:: I can't wait until photon based displays are more common. The idea is simple: rather than blasting electrons onto a florescent surface to produce different colored light, you blast photons directly onto the retina to layer over what you normally see.

I would love to have a heads-up-display in almost everything I do. There are a few obvious benefits:
o It is embedded the 3D real world, so 3D modes of interaction would boost productivity and functionality of software.

o It would involve detecting information from your environment, which will either be done by ubiquitous computing of passive computer vision, both of which I would love to see come to fruition.

o The ability to drown-out "ugly" artifacts in an environment, or enhance them, would lead to new levels of personal aesthetics. Unanimity of aesthetics without conformity to standard definitions.

BUT, this is way in the future, unfortunately. sigh...
