CSI Glasses Allow Remote Investigation

Crime scene investigation is about to take a whole new turn. The New Scientist reported that augmented reality glasses could turn crime scene investigation into a desk job.

Initially the glasses would allow investigators to build a 3D model of the original crime scene before evidence is removed for processing. More complete than crime scene photos, for sure. The glasses would also allow the wearer to contact someone back at the lab to review the crime scene footage.

In a related story, DARPA is working with Innovega on augmented reality contact lenses. Looks like science fact is becoming stranger than science fiction.
