The Daily Slash: October 6th 2010

With CTIA officially kicked off, it was a pretty busy few hours there earlier this afternoon. And with more events planned, and some not even at CTIA, it looks like the rest of the week is going to be just as busy. In our story caught from around the Web, NTT DoCoMo and Olympus have teamed up to create some Augmented Reality glasses. And then, as we usually do around this time of the night, we'll wrap up what's happening around the R3 Media Network.

From Around the Web

NTT DoCoMo and Olympus Team Up to Create AR Glasses: Augmented Reality was a hot commodity less than a year ago, and many thought it would literally change the smartphone market. While that hasn't happened, it's certainly not going anywhere any time soon. In the case of the AR Walker Augmented Reality glasses, which are a work in progress from Olympus and wireless network NTT DoCoMo. The glasses use a small display and a light guide which is placed on the right temple. The idea is that you use the glasses as normal, but when you look at a key element, the augmented reality will kick in, and show you something of interest about whatever it is you're looking at through the bottom-right of the glasses. The glasses can connect to a cell phone, which NTT DoCoMo showed off at CEATEC in Japan. Neither one of the companies would comment on a release date or price, however. [via Tech-On]
