This could be your best travel companion in few years time


If the technologist will have their way then you'll soon see a transparent tablet guiding all tourists in coming years. Right now the "Looking Glass" PC is just a concept device, which could replace standalone GPS devices. Designed by a Tokyo resident Mac Funamizu, the tablet incorporates a camera/scanner, GPS and internet connectivity. "Just frame anything you desire behind the glass window, from a building, to a car or piece of art and the image will be analyzed and searched on any number of sites like Wikipedia, Google or Google Earth. Want to know about a word in a book or magazine? Simply frame it up and touch the word. Instant access to any number of learning aids eg. dictionary, thesaurus or reference databases will have you clued in in seconds."
