In case you hadn’t heard, we now have access to the 4th dimension simply by using new technologies like VR /AR and 360 video devices.We now have the ability (telepresence)to travel through Space/Time and through multiple Digital Universes.
Soon, you will exist on multiple planes of “reality”. Stepping between the real world (with augmented overlays) and virtual ones each one unique and beyond imagination)
These are powerful tools that create new privacy and ethical challenges but we must be open to discussing them today, because there is an “inter-dimentional” war about to take place over your digital life..
How long until there is a PepsiVerse, a Walmart world and hundreds of corporate ‘verses? …
Aside from the more common Benefits of #AugmentedReality #Technology
The benefits outweigh the risks, but just for a minute, let’s talk about RISKS:
I love VR technology, I really do. I know it’s the future of entertainment, education and telecom but it pains me to see images of young children in VR knowing what I know about the technology. It’s not that it’s been proven to be dangerous, it’s that the answer to “Is it safe for children?” is … we don’t know enough yet.
First off I’d like to say : “It’s always the Parent’s choice”, but that statement is only valid if both the parents are AWARE of the POTENTIAL RISKS of “realistic” sensory immersion, and there are a few worth mentioning. …
We have to better understand sealed ecosystems so we can more effectively alter our own. In fact, prolonged human habitation of earth might depend on it. This situation is caused in part, by climate destabilization, often referred to as as global warming brought about by the artificial introduction of large volumes of Co2 gas into the atmosphere.
Problem #1 : We live, in the very environment that we inadvertently altered and now seek to begin managing to survive. To minimize risk we run multitudes of simulations run through computer modeling programs, before we apply them to our life-sustaining-world. Unfortunately these programs can’t adequately take into account how diversity of life adapts (invasive species) to shifting ecological niches within different or altering ecosystems. As such we have a limited understanding of interconnected relationships in complex closed-loop environments. …
Be warned: You aren’t going to LIKE hearing most of this.
The biggest event in thousands, maybe millions of years, and we call it simply “climate change’. There’s the first problem.
So first of all, we have existing associations with the words “Climate Change”, (climates change all the time. It’s sort of … what they do regionally) so let’s also not call it that, or even “Global Warming”. Yes, I know, the earth’s temperatures are warming, but A: not uniformly, and B: “warm” doesn’t adequately convey the situation at all. Some places are getting hotter, wetter, windier, colder, or dryer. …
skip to the row of ******** if you don’t like physics.
Our Sun is in motion, out on one of its’ extended “arms”, it orbits the center of our milky way galaxy, (It is one of many solar systems swinging around at incredible speeds).
Circling around that star you can find us, Earth, another planetary body in motion, traveling through space ….. and time.
Time is measured by space, and space can be measured by time.
To travel through space IS to travel through time.
To travel through time, you must know the position in space you wish to be at before you depart. …

AI needs us, just as much as we need it … maybe more.
A moment is fast approaching when Artificial Intelligence is either going to be created in a lab from a combination of projects, or less likely, “simply emerge” from some processor “hive” or quantum computer that we create.
Due to the nature of the unknown, it’s hard to say for certain. When, it will occur and HOW, but one thing seems certain. The arrival of Artificial Intelligence(s) now seems inevitable.
Most likely it will be immediately gain access to the internet (if it doesn’t already have it) and begin to absorb the vast amount of information and connections available to it. …
Through the ages, technology has continually progressed towards better adapting us for this rapidly changing world. Sure we are the ones, who changed artificially altered the landscape of our surroundings, and modified the fabric of social interactions, but hey, we’re learning, and the stuff we are learning…. WOW.
Sensory manipulation, bio-feedback and calibration has been studied and applied for what seems like forever, but now, we are using that vast depository of knowledge (conditioned responses, NLP etc) and the latest sensor and hijacking technologies, (ECG, EEG, #VR and #AR) to create/improve Games, Education, Entertainment, Therapy and much much more…
I think it’s time to take a closer look at how far we’ve come. …
Many Canadians’ childhood dream is about to come true.
HOUSE HIPPOS !
Below is an #Augmented Reality example , it’s not available, in hands-free yet, but soon wil be.
This is the House Hippos video that inspired the dream.
So it shouldn’t me much longer until you are checking your closets for these adorable little vermin.
Do remember them? Are you as eager to see this as I am?
Soon with augmented reality glasses you will be.
