Wear a retinal displayer

Microvision, Inc. is a company that designs and develops light scanning technologies that when integrated into handheld or headworn devices project images onto the retina of the eye, allowing an individual to see large, full-motion images without the need for a cumbersome screen.
The approach is similar to cathode-ray projection in a television. But instead of electron beams selectively lighting spots on a screen, light projects onto the retina, illuminating tiny points and creating the illusion of a 43- to 53-centimeter screen floating in space at arm's length. For example, to view a Web page, people using mobile phones equipped with retinal displays might hold the devices close to their eyes.

Bluetooth test program for wireless payment

Eurocard has selected 100 credit card users in Sweden to test a virtual card service during May and June 2001 using their Ericsson R520 mobile phones with built-in Bluetooth technology. The trial uses a virtual card and Bluetooth personal area network (PAN) technology, allowing the testers to pay at selected outlets using their mobile phones. Integrated into the mobile phone's firmware, the virtual credit card securely contains a user's euroCard/Mastercard details.
According to Ericsson, four stores in the Täby Centrum shopping mall near Stockholm (MQ, Ego, Teknikmagasinet and Buketten ) are involved in the test.
