Google Glass Features and Apps Still in Flux - IEEE Spectrum
Rohit Khare stashed this in Singularity
IEEE Spectrum: Bruce Sterling, the science fiction writer, said he isn’t very excited about Google Glass because it isn’t truly augmented reality. What’s your response to that?
Babak Parviz: I would say that even though augmented reality isn’t our immediate goal for Google Glass, I think in the future that augmented reality will also come into the picture. So augmented reality is exciting when you think about future generations of this type of wearable computing.
IEEE Spectrum: So you’re saying to Bruce that he should stay tuned?
Babak Parviz: Yes. I personally find it exciting, and I think in the future it will actually come.
I'd like to think that augmented reality includes total recall and augmented consciousness.
