Exponential in action

How quickly are we moving toward the world of Augmented Reality (AR)? Compare these two images of Rome during the election of the last pope in 2005 and more recently in 2013. Then contrast the images to my descriptions of "tru-vu goggles" in EARTH (1989) and the gel-lens stalks people wear in 2048, portrayed in EXISTENCE. David Brin
More like the Gargoyles in "Snow Crash." Except in the latter case, it's generally accepted that most people find gargoyles to be annoying and ridiculous.
Looks positively primitive.
