I know I'm going to be that old man that youths will be calling crotchety and set in his old ways at some point and that point may be sooner rather than later viewing this. No, just... no. I foresee too many potential problems and not just on surface value on this.
waste of money and i can see this being a flop right now. and they look like modern star trekkies or something lol
Wow, they are really trying to take it to the next level. The last thing we need is people following us in our homes and observing everything we do. We already got them tracking us on our phone. It probably won't sell immediately, but 5 years later, there will be people who are willing to do this. Think about all of us who have smartphones, we accept the tracking for convenience. When you download that app they give you a list of things they do, there are a lot that I just won't do, but I am sure that some use their powers for evil, like the GPS system I use. I won't even get into computers. Today it seems ridiculous, but ask the people who grew up in the 70's if they have a smartphone. Not all, but a lot do, this is the same thing that might happen with these glasses.
I like it. I can see a lot of interesting uses for it.. I think uses in the video are pretty lame.. And I dont even use that word. But I could see some more creative uses for it. They need some cooler glasses though.. Nobody wants to look like a cyborg.. But Think about being able to digitally zoom in and out.. And applying Different filters to your vision.. Night vision, black and white, etc. think about being able to create games that layer graphical objects with real world locations using gps, etc.. I can see painting a mural with the sketch contained in a program. I can see learning a dance routine.. Martial arts.. Etc..
I think they're needs to be some companion software that can run from another device like a smartphone or computer or some other input/ control device.
Not only that but imagine a god-eye vision of the place of wherever you are in real time or super vision, like seeing the virtual inside of restaurant superposed with reality. We'll have super senses. I love science and technology!
i want one that will let me see through a woman's clothes…...
i'd hit seven of nine…….
Augmented reality looks more impressive everyday. I just can't help but think how annoying this could get if they started popping in any advertisement or worse contextual advertisement in my field of vision.
there are experiments with putting information directly into the optic nerve.
this would allow blind people to see.
