While attending the Augmented World Expo, I asked myself weird questions like
- Why does all this futuristic technology give me a feeling f Deja-vu?
- Will robots dominate communication and fashion more than cell phones?
- Will mixed augmented reality become reality?
- Will there be any non-white collared jobs left in America ten years from now?
I firmly believe that the way we dress in 2036 will be a lot weirder than how people dress in movies like Star Trek and The Fifth Element
Augmented Reality in every part of fashion will become the norm. For example, with this company, Metaverse, it turns ones finger nails into an interactive platform. Wearables are not only going to be a jewelry accessory. Women will be wearing nail art that is internet connected and interactive.
Telekinesis Could Exist Everywhere
It might sound far fetched, yet, I tested a technology product called Emotiv where I was able to control the movement of a ball strictly through brain wave activity. As this technology progresses, will it become convenient enough to drive a car, move furniture, etc. Will we see signs in public places that say "Must Not Wear Brainwave Powered Wearables" in a way where we see schools, nightclubs, etc. saying "No hats" or "No cell phones"?
Will their be sensors in every piece of clothing people wear? Will the rate of obesity decline since the majority of people are aware of unhealthy habits as a result of the clothing they wear? Will people be scared of their T-shirts getting hacked?
Companies like Vntana can possibly put billboard companies out of business like Netflix put video stores out of business? Why? Vntana is a company that provides hologram advertisements and signs without the need of a person wearing a headset or smart eye wear, and currently working with the NFL to make stadiums to be filled with holographic advertisements. Will holograms be as ubiquitous as cell phones?
With fashion accessory like Drinkbot, a robotic powered device for cocktail waitresses, what will happen if this becomes popular enough where it becomes standard attire for bartenders and cocktail waitresses roaming casinos and nightclubs?
Lightbeam, allowed me to talk to a women "walking" and exploring the trade show floor controlling a robot from a remote distance. Why can't Lightbeam be equipped with weaponry where buildings don't need to pay domestic security guards? Will businesses employ people in India and China to use Lightbeam to perform security activities?
Nuheara allows people to easily hear people from a far distance, and makes it easy to block out distracting noises like loud music when talking to someone? Why can't a CIA operative use this device? Will people be worried that someone might be listening to their conversation from 100 feet away if Nuheara becomes as ubiquitous as cell phones?
