Augmented Reality is one of those technologies that I think will transform society sooner than most people think. It’s hard to conceive of this new world but try to remember what our society was like before cell phones were everywhere. 10 years ago, our current society with smartphones was hard to imagine too.
The reason I am so interested in AR, is because it is the ability to overlay information on the real world at any time. It is the Internet made physical (so to speak). Until we can directly download information into our brains, this is the next best thing. The implication for education will be dramatic. Learning based on memorization will become extinct. AR will become the ultimate distraction/ learning tool.
Well, let’s not get too deep into all that right now. Just enjoy this amazing short film about Augmented Reality.
