I want my arms free. This implies a hud, and a belt-worn unit. If it's at
the belt, and thus near at the center of your mass it can be relatively
heavy. Machine vision upon video from the hud-mounted stereo allows you to
use your hand for pointing, and use optical field flow for reality
overlay. Add real speech recognition, and you've got a nonintrusive,
essentially invisible yet extremely powerful device.
