The Daqri smart helmet is being developed mainly for industrial purposes, but it makes use of some cool technology. It provides a data feed on a wearable augmented reality screen and it certainly looks like a future gadget. The idea is that workers wearing the Daqri don’t have to worry about their hands being full; the information they’re looking for is in front of their eyes instead. It can even list instructions on how to complete the task at hand.
