1. Intel said on Tuesday that the Daqri Smart Helmet (the Daqri helmet is intended for the workplace) will ship today racing past Microsoft to the augmented reality world. Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. Powered by Intel's M7 chip and RealSense, Daqri's helmet brings it into the much-hyped market for virtual and augmented reality, which promises to take you to new worlds or add to your existing one through sophisticated head gear.

Intel shows off a kind of X-ray vision by letting a worker see through pipes that might be faulty, which can be picked up by its RealSense camera. The helmet could also be used to give workers digital directions on top of what they're looking at when doing manual labor. Do you think this technology makes a job easier?

5. A company called DigiLens has just unveiled a kind of mobile AR tool that motorcyclists will soon be able to use to navigate the road. At first glance, the easiest way to describe the device is as "Google Glass for motorcycle helmets," except the viewing lens is significantly larger. DigiLens' device magnetically fastens itself to the rider's helmet, just in front of the eye, delivering real-time updates on information including traffic warnings, fuel usage, speed and engine functions. Would you find this to be distracting while driving?
