Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:Right hand or forehead? Perhaps you have seen people, especially in trendy big-city cafes like Starbucks, paying their bill by allowing the cashier to scan the person's i-phone. This is technology which allows commerce to happen electronically via a hand-held device. But if this is fulfilling Bible prophecy why would it also mention the forehead?
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Apple could be working on a wearable, head-mounted version of its his iPhone.
Patents uncovered this week show that the technology giant has been investigating a head-mounted display with transparent glass.
Google showed off early versions of its own 'computer glasses' - Project Glass - earlier this week. Companies such as Epson have already rushed to make their own versions.
Apple's patents, filed in 2006, suggest that the company has been interested in the technology for a considerable time.
It's not clear how close to market Apple's version might be.
Apple's patent refers to, 'Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, implementing and using techniques for projecting a source image in a head-mounted display apparatus for a user.'
Google's glasses are designed to let users capture video with a built-in camera as well as use apps, the internet, and social networking sites on the move.
A small projector displays an image in front of the wearer's eyes while letting them stay aware on the outside world.
The idea is to bypass computers, tablets and smartphones entirely and keep the user connected in a (fairly) discreet way.
With the glasses, directions to your destination or a text message from a friend can appear literally before your eyes.
You can converse with friends in a video chat, take a photo or even buy a few things online as you walk around.
In development for more than two years, the project is the brainchild of Google X, the online search leader's secret facility that spawned the self-driving car and could one day let people ride elevators into space.
Isabelle Olsson, an engineer on the Glass project, said the company created the glasses for people to interact with the virtual world without distracting them from the physical world.
It is designed to interact closely with your senses, without blocking them.
She said Google had two broad goals in mind: communications through images and quick access to information. The device has a camera to capture fleeting moments and allow others to see the world through your eyes.
