Head-Mounted Computer This woman demonstrates a head-mounted 15" display with an information-aware display. The system features six-axis position tracker from Hillcrest Labs that allows one to operate a cursor with nearly pixel-for-pixel accuracy by just moving around your head when for example panning around a large image or a map. There is a highly targetted microphone that understands voice-commands where that allow one to zoom in on maps or images, launch specific applications, and open specific files.
