Projections are so the next thing! For the past few years, they have become a symbol of the future, and sure, things do seem headed the right way. A brand new concept from Italian designers Set Solution imagine the upcoming iPhone 6 with the capability of holographic projection.

It could also be used for gaming, and well, for several other applications novel developers could put it use to.
Artist collective Oliver Gal have gotten their hands on patent blueprints of famous inventions, and to general pleasure converted them into these very fine prints.

A couple of days ago, when we saw the Infinity Augmented Reality App and its concept applications, we were impressed. Also, a bit creeped out to realize the concept spent quite a bit of effort in reading moods of people and manipulating their effect. Turns out, that is the real deal, and ready for action.
Putting a Google Glass-like concept with augmented reality, Infinity decided to create this little video showing all the possibilities. It starts out well enough, showing all the good things. Then, the video goes to the creepy side with Facebook stalking, reading countenance, and well, quite a few privacy concerns. But the dude scores with the chick, its all right I guess.
