2013: I see Google develops Google Glass. It is interesting that I described in 2008 in my unpublished science fiction novel "Svetly put'" (that was used without my permission and partly stole by infamous writer V. Pelevin, the publishing house Eksmo and others) the powerful computer glasses. The competitors of the Google - Microsoft, Apple, Sony, Baidu (Baidu Eye), Olympus, Valve, Samsung and LG - also develops various wearable computers with a head-mounted displays. If a corporation donates me some money, then I could give the pages of my novel where I wrote about the computer glasses and what people did with it, and with augmented reality. Or I could sell the pages. Probably they could be useful for development, elaboration, advertising and promotion of such computer glasses.
