It looks like the Village People Fortnite team.   I'm only pretending to be a cool gaming kind of a dude.  I wouldn't know one computer game from another if I saw it on screen, unless it happened to be the original Doom.

You can see how something like that could be useful, although it worries me how much you could see in that tiny screen, and if you could even focus on something that close?  I saw a similar device for motorcycle helmets recently.

It also puts me in mind of the Gargoyles in Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash novel.  This is someone's depiction of the character Lagos, who is permanently wired into the net  in what I believe is a non reversible way.

if you go to a game show where any of these devices are demoed you will see people falling down and walking into each other because it messes with the normal way the brain talks to the body i.e, a heads up display in real life = people watch the display and walk out under a bus

It is normal for a product like to be demolished at the current stage because neither do people get the feeling of how it will end up or is it something they really need. RIP for now.
