What will life be like when apps such as Layar or Google Goggles are no longer applications in a handheld device, but hardwired into our brains? Shoot some normal everyday event from your own point of view. Layer some 'augmented' reality style effects on top of the video in an attempt to show what life will be like once we are cybernetically linked to technologies such as Layar or Google Goggles. It could be like the view that the Terminator sees through his robotic eyes, or something more down to earth like a price comparison app that appears as you do your shopping. Make it funny, make it serious or speculate about how this technology might be used for good or bad.
