Apple Patents Transparent Display Technologies With Overlay [New Apple Patents Might Make Augmented Reality More Interesting, With Transparent Displays That Show Information Alongside Background Images] | TFTS

I can't believe I didn't see this one coming. I knew about the transparent displays a thought to myself that it looks cool but why would anybody want something like that.

But for ar it makes total sense.  It would be a magic window on the world. 
You could look through it and it could display over what you looking at information like prices or names.  It could show you what you house looks like with a new color paint or what the a couch would look like in a room.

It could be used for game like point at the car in front of you and watch it explode.

Or alter the clothing someones wearing.

You could have fray vision and see inside someone or through walls.  Look a pipes under the ground.
