You Always Wanted Pictures Shot Straight Into Your Retinas, Right?

"Retina display technology" sounds frightening if you think about it for more than a second. Brother's upcoming specs beam 800x600 images refreshed at 60hz directly onto your retina, so that they appear, transparently, about a meter in front of you.

They're coming out next year, though they haven't set a price. Separate, NEC's planning a pair of similar shades, except that they'd translate foreign languages in real time, with subtitles hovering in front of you, like you're watching a movie of your life. Which is how I feel a bunch of the time anyway. [Register, FarEastGizmos via Popular Science via Engadget]
