A squad of Marines is patrolling an unfriendly city. As their vehicle passes a crowd of men, the soldiers’ headsets focus on their faces, and using facial recognition software, potential enemies are identified. That’s not a reality yet, but it is an application under development by Epson and APX Labs. The hardware, which is already available for consumers, is Epson’s Moverio BT-100, an Android-based set of 3D glasses. (Click here to watch video in new window.)
Using another Epson/APX app firefighters battling a dangerous brush fire could get information on where the fire is headed and be pointed to hot spots that need to be doused.
