Augmented Reality Is In Your Future @ Infinispace.net

Augmented reality is in your future.  It is.  You just don’t know it yet.
What was science fiction 20, 10, even 5 years ago is quickly becoming reality.  Maybe not as an inexpensive and accessible consumer product, but as a dazzling and, quite honestly, mind blowing tech demo put on by Mi…
