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.

That would be an interesting and handy approach. I think Linux is good to experiment with new GUI concepts. The problem is to find the right people to face such challenge!

I know, "if you want something done, do it yourself, but you know, ideas have power. The best programmer in the world can't bring anything really brillinant without innovative ideas. Look at Microsoft: lots of money and good programmers, lack of new ideas. A lot of projects need a lot of people working on it: programmers, designers, testers... and people thinking about goals, objectives and so. So not being a programmer isn't so bad :>)

Ideas need to be spread to be useful, communicate them. Maybe you will start a huge project, maybe a small one, maybe inspire somebody, or just start a nice discussion, like the one inside this thread, that is, by itself, a good thing. At the bottom line, speaking/writing is gratis :>)
