You're seeing the future of pornography right here, folks.

And the demise of actual interpersonal relationships. You could just program your idea of the perfect guy/gal, then let the AI program do the rest. All of those parents with the hope of their kid moving out of the basement just gave up.

And every awkward person who can't find a mate will either rejoice or cry.

Google Glasses was just thrown out.
People called the google-glass users for "glass-holes"


I wonder what they will call this new generation? Reality-deniers ?

I now know why Google dumped glasses, I have got to say imho the demonstration video for hololense was mightily impressive, and promised in windows 10 time line .

Watching videos anywhere at any size, instant video calls , collaborative projects , the possibilities are endless.

add a treadmill and all of a sudden you got a holo deck , forget VR .. Oculus rift goodbye, Holo tech is the way to go , Augmented reality. every device and application the you currently own could all be done in real time and real space with this one device.

We live in interesting times

reminds me of the lawnmower man movie, but this tech will tap the ancient locked regions of the brain.

I think home "themes" will be a big seller. convert your living room into say, a beachside casa, or a spaceship slowly drifting through nebulas and such. giant windows (where your plain walls are) showing off alien worlds below. the TV will become obsolete, and the computer monitor. tablets, smartphones, etc. all wiped away over time, gone the way of the paperback book.


Outside will go the way of the library. Only homeless people will be there.

You know, I was kind of thinking along the same lines.
People will get caught up in it and you just will never see them.
If enough people do that,
as odd as it sounds and as bad as it is for ones health,
the environment would benefit.

Strange days are ahead of us.

I wonder if we can make an app to blur out homeless people through the glasses. erase them from view and put like flowers or maybe a funny banana man in their place.

such wonders await.

(yes, that was meant to sound a bit dystopian
)

we just need nanobots to take in a pill form that form around the visual cortex and give you the ability to mentally be online.

Oh man now I really want.


I am sure they have some bugs to work out before release to where the interface and design will be even better. One thing I am sure of is this thing will have laws against wearing it while driving if not at first it will as soon as someone hacks them and causes wrecks.

It would be like looney tunes with people drawing bridges and tunnels where there are none.

Goody goody gumdrops.

Fully immersive and possibly 'directable' porn that uniquely responds to you the 'viewer' will be the make or break of this tech (like it or not), as it has been for the net.

I say you, the 'viewer', but this tech will effectively transition from having 'viewers', to having virtual participants.

You've heard of 'virtual sex' between people, where they video themselves and type out a sex scenario with a stranger somewhere else in the world? This will herald something else entirely.

Accurate avatars that can be your actual image, or chosen image..will be sent to your online sexual partner and their image will be in your room with you to interact with...wonder when the first realer than real augmented infidelity will result in messy divorce court hearings?

Tens of billions will be made on porn / online sex, never mind all the other less base things this will be used for.

A personal trainer, looking and sounding as real as you or I, right there in your room with you.

Not enough teachers for schools and colleges? Why use a real teacher for one class, when you can have one augmented reality teacher in 10 classes?

GPS will show an overlaid virtual route, right in front of your eyes - either in your vehicle on the windscreen, or projected onto your retinas if you're on foot in the countryside for example.

Movies, where you are a character in the storyline, your actions having an effect on the flow of the story...imagine being in a virtual foxhole, explosions going off and bullets whistling past your ears.

This tech reminds me of the 'Better than life' holo-tech game from the TV series 'Red Dwarf'.

So heres what needs doing, control and create the world of dreams.

Just like Total Recall or Inception. . . .

That will take the place of the TV we put on our heads.

I have emailed microsoft for a more in depth explanation as to their use of the holographics in the title

Finally, someone who gets how augmented reality is supposed to work, rather than the pale imitation of augmented reality known as "Google Glass".

Although, as someone who's worked with real Holography involving lasers and developing holographic plates, I find it particulary irksome when a company misuses the word "Hologram". They should call it something else.

Technophobes always make me laugh.

I remember back in the mid 1980s, when I got my computer and people looked at me like WTF.

You use the word "reality denier", YET, you, me and everyone else here is sitting and communicating via "the internet" and a personal computer.

It's logical (to me), that in 5, 10, 15 years we will NOT sit in front of a flat screen like now (ridiculous outdated technology) but communicate inside virtual worlds where we can interact with people (or their avatars)...but then actually BETTER than what we do right now typing on a flat screen in a forum.

MAYBE, in 10-20 years we would all meet at some place in a 100% "real" seeming setting where we can actually talk, gesture, look at each other while we debate...rather than typing on a keyboard. The thought is NOT that bad...but what we do right now is still rather abstract. It really depends HOW technology is used.

Cool stuff. Back around the late 90's to early 2000s I worked at KSC and we were looking to implement a mobile solution for technicians out in the field.

One of the vendors that we looked at (Can't remember name) had a pair of glasses much like the google glass ,but used a laser to imprint the image to back of your retina in order to give you the effects that MS is trying to do here .It allowed the technicians to see schematics while still interacting with the real world .

At the time it was a prototype I believe but it worked. The only color it could display was red if I recall correctly. I also remember there was a lack of studies performed to determine the consequences of shooting a laser to the retina, which made us decide to go with something else.

The cool thing about using Retinal Display is that it can help people with eye disorders such as Keratoconus since it places the image directly on the retina.

Kind of like this Virtual Retinal Display

As a side note, this really reminds of an early version of Sword Art Online's "NerveGear" headset. Allowing users to interact with a virtual world by interrupting signals sent from the brain to the muscles (disabling your body like you're asleep) and thus allowing you to walk/run/fly/etc in a purely virtual world without ever leaving your bed.

I want this. My body is ready.
