What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

I would very much like to try them out, but I'm not sure the geek factor in me is high enough to want to wear them in public...
All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.

When Virtual Becomes Reality

By the end of the 21st century, the real estate where we work, shop, and play will look more like the Starship Enterprise’s holodeck than bricks and drywall we know today, says Marcel Bulling, futurist and author of Welcome to the Future Cloud—2025 in 100 Predictions.

Hopefully, that won't be necessary. If you stay in good health, you may live long enough to see the indefinite prolonging of your lifespan through genetic and/or cybernetic means.

Well, let's just say freezing could be our back-up plan or insurance, if you will. Just in case.

Could this photograph change the future?


A few weeks after Google announced the completion of their paradigm-warping technology, Google Glass, this picture appeared in the G+ account of Google VP Sebastian Thrun. It was taken while he was playing with his son and wearing his Glass technology — basically, a pair of "smart" glasses that can give you a virtual overlay on the real world, sort of like you're wearing your Android device in your eyeballs. Glass can take pictures too. And suddenly, when people saw what these pictures would look like, the idea of Glass caught fire. Thrun's picture was shared by thousands of people, including Google founder Sergey Brin.
This first-person perspective image captures a kid's smiling face, which isn't remarkable — until you consider that it could never have been taken by somebody holding a camera at the same time. Before this, the public hadn't really been sure what it would mean to wear a Glass device, other than getting a lot of ads trickling down the periphery of your vision. With Glass, you can record everything you see. Literally.
Other than turning the world into a giant panopticon, Glass could change everything from how people have arguments ("Oh you think you said that? I've got a recording that says otherwise.") to how we make amateur porn.
What else will change? Two science fiction short stories offer some ideas.
In Charlie Brooker's series Black Mirror, the segment "The Entire History of You" explores a society where everybody has implants in their brains that constantly record what they see. They can project their memories on screens and share them. It turns out there are incredibly dark ways this tech can be used in personal relationships.
In Jim Munroe's lo-fi movie Infest Wisely, the segment "Early Adopter" [watch it for free here] deals with a woman who tries out a beta version of a nanotechnology that turns your eyes into cameras after you chew a piece of gum. At first, she loves taking candid pictures, but then she finds out there are a few bugs . . . including ethical ones.
Enjoy the future, little ones!

Love this. I can't wait for Glass :)

All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible. - T. E. Lawrence

I think it will be strange at first to see people wearing weird glasses and speaking in the wind walking around you, but one day it will become normal. What makes me want to get it the most is that it may one day have a universal traductor that makes holidays in contrys where you don't even speak a word nor understand them possible.

Current version isn't really augumented reality, it's basically a Heads Up Display, but I believe very soon it may look kinda like this:
"I walk alone and do no evil, having only a few wishes, just like an elephant in the forest."

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone."

TBH when people first started wearing bluetooth headsets for their mobile phones people thought it was crazy, but it's far more acceptable now - even if it does look like you are talking to yourself ;)
All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.

Google patents its augmented reality Project Glass

Search giant Google has patented the technology behind its augmented-reality glasses, known as Project Glass. Three patents for a "wearable display device" with characteristics of the much-talked about futuristic glasses were submitted last autumn. The patents reference such functions as displaying data in front of the wearer's eyes and playing audio.

That's pretty cool. You're right, it is almost seamless while the guy holding the phone moved sideways. This kind of thing is gonna explode in the next few years.
