Until today. Introducing the beta version of AdBlock Freedom: augmented reality eyewear that detects and removes ads from the world in realtime. 

Here's how it works: when powered off, AdBlock Freedom functions as sunglasses. Slide a discreet switch on the frame, and AdBlock Freedom begins scanning your view for objects that it recognizes as ads. Any detected ad gets a "smudge" overlay to blend it into its surroundings.

Sounds like a great technology. I wonder if it's powered by Windows Embedded? Because if it is and the thing gets infected with adware... Wow, you wouldn't be able to walk to the dairy without seeing everyone naked.
