A few days ago, Google unveiled some details about "Project Glass", their long-term augmented reality project.
Pretty cool stuff.
So anyone here watched Dennou Coil?
Dennō Coil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quite surprised actually at how time just seemed to fly by from that Anime to this current prototype.Coil — A Circle of Children, is a Japanese science fiction anime television series depicting a near future where semi-immersive augmented reality (AR) technology has just begun to enter the mainstream. The series takes place in the fictional city of Daikoku, a hotbed of AR development with an emerging city-wide virtual infrastructure. It follows a group of children as they use AR glasses to unravel the mysteries of the half real, half Internet city, using a variety of illegal software tools, techniques, and virtual pets to manipulate the digital landscape.
Still I am quite excited about this, but at the same time having reservations about the whole thing due to the obvious current downsides..
But to be quite honest, the blur between reality and virtual life will become even more blurred with this.
