Apple imagines AR glasses that fulfill the dream of Google Glass

Tim Cook has not-so-subtly hinted that Apple is working on some sort of augmented reality product. And while ARKit may be the start, a patent application published today hints at what Apple could be picturing down the road. The application describes how a device could overlay information on the real world. Apple is imagining some pretty broad possibilities here. It could be as simple as putting an indicator on a point of interest, like a building. But it could be as complicated as identifying every element of a car’s dashboard and overlaying videos about them. Apple primarily describes these abilities in relation to a phone: you’d hold it in front of you, the camera would capture the world, and the screen would overlay the context. But Apple goes a bit further than that near the end, saying it could also be applied to a “semi-transparent spectacle or glasses.” In that case, your eyes would see the world, and the glasses would overlay digital information on top of what you’re seeing.

American Idiots

This is what every American fighting against #SinglePayer Medicare for All #healthcare looks like to everyone else in the world.

I've been called "Socialist dirtbag" for supporting it, though after calmly explaining to that person that it is an odd insult coming from a man who relies on:

Fire Department
Police Department
Department of Transportation
Environmental Protection Agency
The US Army, Navy and Air Force
Social Security
Public Education

And more, all of which are funded by his and everyone else's tax dollars to ensure Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution is upheld (General Welfare Clause), and by which his tax dollars are used to save his life, enrich it, and promote better living standards, that calling me the "socialist dirtbag" for saying Healthcare should be on that list because it's a no-brainer seems completely ignorant.
