BBC News - Smart specs unite world and data

We are the borg

A lightweight pair of augmented reality glasses that overlay the world with digital content, such as directions or a travel guide, has debuted in Japan.

The headset, created by Olympus and phone-maker NTT Docomo, uses augmented reality software on an attached phone.

A virtual tour of Kyoto was used as the first demonstration of the technology.
