What Kind of Worlds Will We See Through Google's Augmented Reality Glasses?
My first thought when watching Google's demo video of Project Glass, code-name for its augmented reality glasses, was, "About what I was expecting, but cool." My second thought was, "Why the hell is a guy with augmented reality glasses that can display high-resolution text and video going into a bookstore to buy an illustrated how-to guide for playing the ukulele?"
My third thought, which I leave for New World Notes readers, is: "What kind of virtual worlds/games will we start to see once glasses like these become readily available?" Surely parallel world games like this one, in which the cyberpunk or fantasy world action is overlaid on Google Maps, but just as surely, that's just the start.
UPDATE, 12:40PM: By the way, if you haven't already, now's a very good time to read Desmond Shang's NWN guest post, "Why Augmented Reality Offers Massive Potential for SL's Great Content Creators".
