We need something that would augment our vision with information and media. Apple along with Google has already taken an initiative and they have begun working on such projects. According to the sources, Google is working over something when attached to the body or clothing; it would communicate information back to an Android smartphone which is pretty amazing. Researchers in Google X Labs say Google has hired electronic engineers from Nokia Labs who have expertise in making tiny wearable computers.
Apple is also on the same track. Apple is working on products that would also relay information back to the iPhone gadget. Likewise, Apple is selling Nanos with watch faces.
