With Google Glass just two years away from bringing wearable computing to the mainstream, Sight takes the promise of augmented reality down a decidedly dystopian path. Produced by a group of Israeli students, the seven minute short film follows one man through a typical day in a future where the wearing of augmented reality lenses is commonplace. With strong thematic parallels to Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror trilogy, stunning sci-fi visuals, and a fantastic conclusion, Sight is a delightfully dark short you'd do well not to miss.
