From our present vantage point, it can be hard to clearly see how this all unfolds. What is clear, though, is that it will unfold. I’m very optimistic, and believe that immersive computing will, in time, transform our lives for the better. We’re already seeing glimpses of that today — helping kids explore more of the world from their classrooms, letting journalists bring their audience to the front lines of world events, and enabling artists to create previously unimaginable works of art. One day, we’ll wonder how we ever got along without computing that works like we do — computing that’s environmentally aware, that displays information to us in context, and that looks, feels, and behaves like the real world.
