Augmented Reality

Part of "A Touch Too Much" (post, expo post) is the idea of augmented reality. A few videos out there show this in action (in the real world).

Contextualizing the surroundings.

AR video roundup.

Games Alfresco has a lot of info on AR.

William Gibson talks about locative art in relation to his last book Spook Country.

Another example might be the advertising in the movie Minority Report which targets specific ads based on your profile.

Intrusive? Demanding? Useful?

All I know is I would rather have a pair of glasses than a mini LCD built into some media player.
