Graphics, User Interfaces Within the last few days we read the news about Apple's Siri AI personal assistant, and about a brain implant that lets monkeys control virtual limps & feel virtual objects. I believe that if someone is to also combine a few more technologies (e.g. high-res eyeware, appropriate operating system changes), we will be looking at the next user interface revolution, after the inventions of the computer mouse and touch interfaces.

A display like this does not change much in the grand scheme of things. It's still a display, that happens to display in a 3D manner. It's an evolution on the current 2D UIs, but not a revolution (especially if someone has to carry lights). Such displays still have a rather large, physical X x Y. They're good to display stuff to a large crowd, but not for personal computing. The point is to eliminate the need for big displays. Most of us already wear eye-glasses. Not using them for anything else is just a waste of resources and lack of ingenuity.
