BARCELONA, Spain -- We popped over to Fujitsu's booth at Mobile World Congress in sunny Spain to check out its augmented reality-equipped gloves and glasses, along with a cool motion tracking projector and more.

First up though, Rich Trenholm goes behind the wheel of some of Fujitsu's new car tech -- and loves it.

This 'car' is equipped with voice recognition technology so you don't need to take your hands off the wheel to type directions into your phone.

Presumably you won't need to consult a cheat sheet every time you want to get directions to the shops.

Cunningly placed microphones pick up your voice and send it back to a dashboard phone.

It'll allow you to view maps on the built in dashboard display.

Barcelona is apparently a fashion hotspot. Rich is using Fujitsu's augmented reality specs.

They have screens built in that show you the scene in front of you with digital information overlaid on top. It's designed for business use mostly -- oil workers for example can use the specs to see information about which pipeline to bash with a wrench or access digital manuals.

This man introduced Rich to his finger -- there's a glove on it that allows him to write numbers in the air or confirm details about a project using various gestures, which will be sent back to head office instantly. With no writing or even emailing involved, Fujitsu hopes this glove will really speed up tasks.

Rich has a go at messing with oil pipes using the glasses and gloves. Disaster was narrowly avoided.

Already accomplished at pointing at things, this demo came naturally to Rich. The glasses would tell a technician exactly which component needs adjusting, while the gloves allow him to confirm quickly that all tests had been done.

There's no denying that it's a pretty cool look.

Elsewhere, this projector can track the movements of your hands, adding digital information over the top of documents.

This is the way all holidays will be planned in the future.

Rich showing off his crazy pointing skills again. Have some modesty, man. This time he's pointing at a tablet that has an advanced form of haptic feedback. It's designed to vibrate in certain areas more strongly in order to give an impression of texture to your fingers.

Swipe your finger across this croc and you'll feel the vibrations become faster and more intense as you touch the more spikey scales.

You can also feel the texture of sand.

Speaking of sand, this tablet is impervious to sand dust. Here's a test model being slowly eroded like a cliff face.

This one is waterproof.

How do you test a phone's noise cancelling skills? Pop it in a sound-proof chamber with speakers, obviously!
