As a responsible driver, hopefully you stay away from your phone while driving unless it is hands free. You postpone checking your text messages and definitely no updating your facebook profile. Here’s a question for you, ever wanted to be able to stream online music among other internet tasks, all from the comforts of your very own vehicle. While this technology may seem like something of the future its day has already come. Several car companies including Mercedes and most prominently, Ford are working diligently at making our dreams of multi-tasking while still safely driving come true. You are no longer limited by not being in close proximity to a computer or not being allowed to use your smartphone because of focusing on the task of driving. So-called connected cars work by giving you this information through your car’s dashboard. For example Ford’s sync launched in 2007 is voice-activated and can be used to connect to your mp3 players as well as smartphones.

Ever wondered what the food was like at that Indian place you always pass, but never dared to enter? Ever been curious about city exploration but have been too lazy to actually get out there? Well, the opportunity has presented itself in the form of augmented reality for various digital devices.

As exciting as these new possibilities seem, there is the danger of voyeurism, as augmented reality allows applications to share unprecedented insight into areas, products, people and business. The gap between digital and “real” life is becoming more diluted as augmented reality increasingly impacts our concepts of space, time and experience through various applications for digital devices.
