Deja vu

A free-running visual memory prosthetic might in general indicate to the wearer that he or she has seen a particular object before. For example, it might alert the wearer wandering around in circles that he or she has been in that particular place before. In some sense it could function as the visual equivalent of Starner's rememberance agent[20] (a text interface that constantly watches what the user types and automatically reminds the user of related text files).
