LOL I wanna look like Data from Star Trek:TNG! Those things will definitely improve and look like a really fun thing to use.

I know it's an old post but....
Careful with that...haven't been reading good things about these virtual screen things.
Always reading things saying how the projection can burn your eyes or harm your eyesight. Can't remember what magazine it was but I was reading about a year ago of accounts where people would have serious eyesight complications due to these. (I think it was the older one that was a 40 or 41" TV from 6 feet away.)
But pretty cool nonetheless.

I've been using mine for a while now and i havnt had any unusual problems with my eyes, just had them checked not too long ago and theres been no change in them in years.

They DO take some getting used to though. When i first started using them there was a bit of eye strain after a couple hours, but after i relaxed and stopped fighting them that went away.

I'm no specialist or anything, but that is my experience anyway.

If you are worried, you could always discuss it with a optometrist...
