Hilarious Video Offers Glimpse of Our Pokey, Heads-Up Display Future

Like it or not, we're rushing towards a dystopian future of head-mounted devices. Fortunately, along the way we are served up with gems like Industrial Technology Research Institute's (ITRI) iAT (i-Air Touch) wearable device promo video. Unlike Google Glass with its boringvoice controls, you control this heads-up-display by stabbing and swiping at the air in front of you. The video is spectacular on many levels. The music, the graphics, the world's worst calculator — it's all there to remind you that the future is being brought to you with the same production values as a late-night informercial.
