Augmented reality, the inevitable step in the digitising of our world

November 30th, 2016

Last weekend I waited hours in the cold to pick up the Snap Spectacles.

The week before I picked up the Google Home.

The third device, out in December, is the new Apple Earpods.

I’m keen to play with all of these.

These devices represent the early examples of the inevitable next steps in computing. The digitisation of the real world experiences.

Augmented reality is the next frontier, it’s that little step change which we can all accept and get practical use from today. The vital component required for new innovation to get adopted.

Seems Tim Cook agrees;

“AR is going to take a while, because there are some really hard technology challenges there,” he continued. “But it will happen, it will happen in a big way, and we will wonder when it does, how we ever lived without it. Like we wonder how we lived without our phone today.” MacWorld.

I’ve also shared some of my initial experiments with Google Home.
