May 6, 2007: Luke's Binoculars

So it appears that DARPA is working on binoculars that will, basically, read the mind of the troop using them, so it "knows" what he's seeing before his conscious mind does. Here's the good part: this might be only three years out.

The Wired article doesn't speculate about civilian applications for the technology, so I will. What if a car on the freeway could correctly react to a problem situation up ahead before the driver had consciously noticed it?
