The future looks like Hell!
I don't even have or want a mobile phone, something like in this video would annoy me beyond compare.
Besides, everyone will look insane waving their hands about all the time.
I'm still laughing at people who use headsets to answer their mobile phones because they look like they are talking to themselves.

Good to see you are looking beyond fixed screen based worlds now Hamlet! May like a compilation of Mixed Reality, particularly the AR world around us flavor from 2008 http://www.youtube.com/user/hayesg01#p/u/26/6TF9HOBTIYg oh and more on state of play re: pervasive locative AR gaming here http://www.personalizemedia.com/future-of-location-based-augmented-reality-story-games/ and one I did from last week looking at the evolution or rather, heritage of pervasive AR games http://www.personalizemedia.com/pervasive-entertainment-games-film-real-world-tv-merged-with-social-networks/

Busy developing a range of live actors and NPC AR worlds, EPOC video of one in progress using WoW placeholders - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMQ5DFkU794

I have seen the future and it's really annoying.


Human beings are fantastic at filtering out unwanted stimuli, and we always forget how much this ability has evolved over time.

If you brought someone from the 16th century into our modern world, they would undoubtably ask "How can you drive those fantastic speedy automobiles without crashing? There's so much to read on those signs on the side of the road!"

We'll adapt. We always do.
