A computer system designed to look for life on Mars picks out interesting features and highlights them in real-time in a visor on one eye or a tablet display.

It consists of a 667MHz wearable computer, a tablet display with stylus or visor, a colour video camera and tripod.

It would provide “augmented reality”, allowing astronauts on future Mars missions to narrow down their search for targets relevant to life processes.
