I was walking outside a couple of minutes ago, and there are all sorts of mushrooms and interesting plants around. There are also poisonous snakes and other critters.

We could mount one or two cameras (for stereo vision) on a walking stick. The handle would have a focus (and interpupillary distance) adjustment knob. The world of the forest underbrush (or underneath your car, etc.) would be visualized either on a low cost LCD screen or 3D VR glasses.

       how does it make the snakes scram?

       It would have to include an optional SnakeStunner (TM) or a SnakeSummoner (TM) IR emitter device, depending on your affinity towards our reptilian companions.

       Frying pans work great on snakes, that is if you like fried snake.
