Geek stuff, sci-fi... Augmented Reality is the overlapping of digital information and physical environment. Sci-Fi has often portrayed A.R. as interactive floating transparent computer screens projected into the air, or perhaps the most absolute example: standing inside an entirely computer generated world.

I agree about the gorilla arm thing, our arms are much better adapted to perform small movements while resting or being supported on a desk, but I think touch recognition can bring some enhanced interactivity. Maybe a better alternative would be some kind of big touchpad integrating keyboard and mouse roles, or something similar to a laser keyboard tracking finger position and gestures.
