Facebook Reveals Breaking New Technology Coming Our Way
Do you remember Google Glass? It was an invention that Google came out with that was a pair of smart glasses.
I think that the idea of the smart glasses was a very good idea but the implementation and the timing of the product were all wrong.
I think now we’re coming to a time where people are finding a better use for them rather than them just being a fun thing to do. In reality, they just didn’t serve a big purpose and really help you improve your life in any way.
Here we are a little over a decade later and the design has been improved and other companies have taken up the task of using this concept to improve industry such as manufacturing, logistics, health care, and much more.
One company, Vuzix has made great improvements to the technology. Take a look at these videos.
Well, Facebook is trying to get in on the action as well.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company is developing augmented reality smart glasses because no current technology can replicate “the holy grail of social experiences” that is feeling present with another person, in an episode of The Information’s 411 podcast this week.
“You have technology that allows you to communicate and that can with different fidelity help you see what’s going on with the other person,” Zuckerberg said on the podcast. “But there’s just something that’s really magical about the sense of presence and feeling like you’re there with another person and everything that goes into that psychologically.”
“Rather than calling someone or having a video chat, you just kind of snap your fingers and teleport, and you’re sitting there and they’re on their couch and it feels like you’re there together,” he said on the podcast.
The future is here and it’s exciting when it comes to technological advances. There is no telling where our world will be 25, 50, or even 100 years from now..again, technologically speaking. Morally and as a society, this country may not even exist, but at least we’ll have some cool gadgets.
