ABSTRACT
IT'S 4pm and I need a caffeine fix on the unfamiliar streets of San Francisco. I would normally whip out my phone, go online to find the nearest coffee shop and put the address into its navigational system. Instead, I tap the side of my head: 'OK Glass, where's the nearest Starbucks?' A split second later, a crystal-clear map appears to hover magically in my line of vision. It's showing me the nearest branch a couple of blocks away. As I start to walk, a reassuring female voice gives me directions through a 'bone conductor' behind my right ear.
