"The short film shows the dehumanizing pitfalls of augmented reality and gamification in our everyday interactions.

Google envisions its Google Glasses, a wearable augmented reality device, giving people instant access to information about the world without having to tap on their smartphone or tablet screens. The glasses' augmented reality technology takes digital information – normally locked away inside mobile apps or Internet browser windows – and displays it in a timely fashion directly on top of what a person sees in the real world.

But "Sight" pushes augmented reality and other technology trends to the creepy extremes by imagining a Google Glasses device implanted in your head. That cyborg technology enables the man in "Sight" to do a lot more than just check on the woman's social networking updates on the date in progress."
