While we’re years away from achieving augmented vision, the game Dead Space gives us a nice preview of some of the features that would be available.  In the game, the HUI (Human User Interface) is explained as a holograph, but the concept would work the same as using augmented vision. 

The game was released in 2008 for the PC, XBox 360 and PS3; and won the Game Spot Best of 2008 award. 


With the first real lightweight AV glasses still months away, we won’t get to see commercial products demonstrating this type of HUI this year.  But hopefully in 2010, we might start seeing some traction in the area of augmented vision.
