Augmented Reality

Augmented (hyper)Reality: Domestic Robocop from Keiichi Matsuda on Vimeo.

We think that the commercial world is the purveyor of our private lives now...the future is bleak. Augmented reality will be a new platform through which we will once again be bombarded by the ever-present hand that is capitalism.

Keiichi Matsuda, an architecture student in Berlin posits more optimistic possibilities. It is the kind of imaginative ingenuity that conceives a very plausible near future; innovation at its best. The possibilities are very exciting!

This technology may seem a bit overwhelming but it is the future. Read the original post on Dornob (see an additional cool video)- I agree that we would probably have thought the internet would be an "information overload", had we been presented with it a few decades earlier. I mean, WOW! My kids will be interacting this way decades down the line. Crrrazy!
