AR ... to be continued



BRT did a piece on AR about 3 months ago showing Machusta's amazing video depicting sensory overload to the max titled I Dunno About This. Where is man going with this tech? Not a clue, something rather disquieting to say the least.

Victor says Strange Beasts gives players a “friend for life.” But as we watch him sitting alone in his apartment swiping in mid-air at images only he can see, we start to feel uneasy.

The twist at the end of the film is one you may not see coming, and it opens up broader questions about the implications of augmented reality and similar technologies. Does technology that enables imaginary relationships keep us from building real ones, or is it just a minor distraction? If it’s a distraction that makes us feel better, then is it really such a bad thing?

Texting is the first disconnect, AR could be the final. Something to think about, don't you think?
