Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Recommended Posts

Augmented Reality .Will it destroy us or set us free? When will it be better than reality? Is it reasonable to say that it is only a matter of time before it is better than reality?

 

Cant be assed researching it but think I know enough to give it a bash and welcome others views and opinions on something that is very real and a present danger in my eyes.

 

Imagine having any conversation with a person but they are present in the room to chat to instead of by text email or phone, they could be there with you ,or for them you with them. 

Having a party ? then you can have any entertainer or band you like playing live in your front room, from the past or present. Even pack the place out with fake guests.

If you want naked women walking around your house its going to be possible, I believe porn will control mankind with what`s possible. Instead of watching porn on a screen you will just have to put on your special glasses and bang any porn star you want or scene played out in front of you on your own bed.

You could invite friends over for a chat ,even play darts and drink together in a digital pub, its all possible whilst walking around your own pad talking to yourself but really feeling like in the pub with ya mates who are also at home walking around like zombies chatting to themselves.

Need advise on a tree from a mate and with the tech the guy can be there with you, is going to be possible.

For education it will end the expensive need for schools as a teacher can be present in the home. Same for Uni and colleges.

Learn to cook with a top chef next to you.

There`s loads of amazing ways it will change the world.

 

I have guessed half this stuff above but I am sure with my limited knowledge of tech its still highly possible and likely to happen, and what with 5G its definitely making it easier to happen.  BigJ`s thread about vehicles and road investment ect got me thinking this n that n I believe the future is us all staying at home as much as possible as reality will suck compared to what Virtual and Augmented Reality will bring. 

I believe we will turn into hermits , food delivered and parcels by drone...We will be too busy masturbating and living a fake reality to be driving anywhere or caring what is anywhere.

 

I can see it being something that we will all want and it will be a must have, but it will also destroy us , we will become hermits and want to live in pods in a city and never give a shit about anything ever again other than work and getting home to our Augmented world...Is it self induced slavery?

Yup pretty much. They'll be queuing up to get into the Matrix. I think the next big thing will be internet synced fully animatronic sex dolls. You'll ware stickers on your joints and cameras will track your movements, then the data will be fed to someone else's sex robot somewhere in the world and it will mimic your movements. And vice versa, so we will be able to share "intimacy" with human controlled robots. As long as both parties own a robot, they can meet and connect through dating sites. Presumably articulate mouths and audio as well. Software will compensate for hight and obesity differentials.

I like to hope this technology will be up to speed in time for me to become old and inferm... it sure sounds like it would transform a retirement homes' entertainment.

However if you take it to the next level of having your body sustained by automated machine while your brain roams free its got overtones of the film 'the matrix'.

There's an old sci fi short story...
Scientist builds a time machine and goes forward in time 200 years.
Exiting his machine he expects to see the glittering future.
But it's all falling apart.
Everyone is wearing the same old worn out clothes.
No one will stop and listen to him, everyone is too busy.
Turns out everyone is trying to save up to get put into the computer games for life.
Reality is just for the maintenance crews.
