Living in an AR world

Hyper-Reality

This video caught my eye this week. It’s a short film made by Keiichi Matsuda. He describes it as “Hyper-Reality presents a provocative and kaleidoscopic new vision of the future, where physical and virtual realities have merged, and the city is saturated in media.”

I think the biggest innovation in the coming decade will come out of display technology. I don’t know how it’s going to look like – that’s like predicting the smartphone in 1990. We know where it’s heading, but do not know exactly how it’s going to look like. There’s certainly a lot of technology developed which is going to help shape that future. We have AR, VR, OLED (most notably flexible displays) and a slew of other more niche display tech like holographic displays, short throw projectors, and plasma emission displays.

The question is how we’re going to use that technology in the real world. This video is inspiring potential vision on how that future can look like. I’m taking an optimistic attitude even though it might look a bit overwhelming.
