seamless transition between first and third person’s view

What's the point if the same brain is interpreting (what look) like two very similar perspectives?

Not sure I understand how this differs from (say) a Go Pro.

@SenseNotSoCommon : Until we can use our eyes as a video signal in order to put other objects in front of a user (like a car dash board etc) you need a camera, what is not shown is the user interacting with something. The mushroom looking things are head position tracking.

the camera looks like a prototype, all the guts hanging out, maybe intentionally, to make it look cool...

anyhow, that camera is "seeing" almost the same thing as the guy's eyes. where's 3rd person in that?

In near future will be a camera in contact lenses as remote controller to be fixed, all devices will be simpler, everything depend on who is doing the initiative, off course will be a new American company to make it, behind the scenes most will be Made in Japan converted to USA.

For blind people this would be very good, if 'sight' is returned to them via this ..Blind persons carers should look into this very closely ..

There's just a new high-tech glasses that help the blind to see:


"This 'Star Trek'-like headset helps the legally blind see again"

Almost like the VISOR in 'Star Trek,' the eSight 3 lets low vision wearers do almost anything, from reading a menu to playing basketball


A legally blind 11-year-old girl named Olivia Lettich had her dreams come true recently as she got to see a Calgary Flames game for the first time thanks to eSight glasses.

Lettich survived an incredibly rare form of eye cancer, but was left with only peripheral vision.
