    Your right, that would be awesome!

    For me, it is Google glasses (or equivalent).

    The idea of information being put straight in front of your eyes is straight cyberpunk and would be really useful.
    The whole using your eyes as cameras thing is also really cool, (legitimate privacy concerns aside).

    I wear normal glasses so would be cool to just be able to watch a film with them on a train or something

    SED TV (basically CRT on steroids)

    Legal battle due to some small US company claiming they did this tech first which caused Toshiba to pull out of partnership with Canon, who went on alone to win it then mothball the tech.

    Sony (AFAIR) dropped a similar tech called FED.
