I’m a bit busy today with a paper deadline, so I’ll just leave you with a thought I had this morning.
I tried out the best piece of AR hardware a little over a year ago; I started wearing glasses and saw the world like I hadn’t seen since I was a kid. I don’t have absolutely terrible vision, so it wasn’t necessary, and it certainly wasn’t fancy. It was just a nice functional improvement to my life.
I don’t think AR will “there” until it’s just that — a simple device that makes our lives more functional.
P.S. Happy day-late birthday to my father, Tom, who has helped both me and the field I now study get where we are today.
