Gadgets in films like Iron Man, where characters gesture their way around holograms in the world around them, are confined to science-fiction. Right?

But a new company is developing a pair of augmented reality glasses which give users the ability to shape digital objects in 3D space, just like in the movies.

The company behind the specs, Meta, believes this will change the face of computing for ever.

They're also working with software developers to make new special apps using the technology.
