Dreaming About Augmented Reality

I first saw this video about a year ago and at the time, it totally jolted me. I really believed that augmented reality was going to be really big, really fast.

Unfortunately, so far, that hasn’t  happened.  Augmented reality just hasn’t taken off. Well okay, it has in some places.

But for the most part, it’s still just an academic exercise.  Or a toy. Or both.

When are we gonna see practical applications, like…shopping?

OK, well, you still can’t fix a car with it…. Can you?

I don’t know, it just seems so…voodoo…like a ouji board…

And maybe even a tad invasive…?

Still pondering…what do you think?? Let me know and, don’t forget to leave your business card.

Thanks for watching!
