Magical Glass Concept

Following on from the post about the concept hand camera, here is a nother one from designer Mac Funamizu. The thin ultra-connected tablet device doesn’t have a name yet, but it really is like a magical glass, a window to the world. You look through the glass, choose any object you want, and you can instantly access a multitude of information about it.
You can use it when you want to know a car model, an insect name, what kind of food is served at a restaurant and how much it costs, who built a bridge, etc. etc. Choose a building or a monument and it brings you details of the location and features of the area. You can use it to check the meaning of a word in the newspaper, book, magazine, etc. You can opt for a dictionary, wikipedia, thesaurus and anything else available on the web.
Imagine having this device when you are on vacation or a trip. Such an exciting way to explore new places.
