Augmented Reality.

16 posts in this topic

Or AR, for us nerds.

It's an idea that's been floating around for a while now. Just about as long as the idea of regular old virtual type. It's the concept of overlaying virtual elements and data over our existing world. And we'd be able to see and interact with these virtual things as if they were indeed real. -- The reason I'm bringing this up is because this whole concept is getting more and more attention recently and is actually looking like it could happen in our lifespan.

The way you'll eventually view this augmented reality is with glasses or goggles.

believe me.. the setups won't always look retarded. Once the world is fully overlaid with virtual crap it wont matter what you look like. You could be optimus prime..

DND is just an elaborate board game and great excuse to get together with your friends. It's exactly like playing an MMO.. except your with people you actually care about and you can do stuff that could never be programmed into an actual videogame.

Back on topic though.. no one is interested in this ..? I find that depressing. :corner:

There are so many things that "could become a reality in our lifetime"

Unfortunately I'm highly skeptical we'll stop wasting all our loot on wars for fossil fuels and do something positive, like mitigate the damage of climate change before millions of us starve to death -_-

AR looks like fun and it could be useful for med/military applications :bingo:

I'm hoping after the baby boomers are all used up and out of power the next gen can bust some ass and undo and mitigate the damage these ancient selfish miserable fucks did to the world. Maybe then cool shitz can be a way of life instead of mid east war and designer virus -_-;

They're already using it in Boston hospitals for laser surgery on extremely hard operations. There's a wide range of Iphone apps that use AR that haven't come out yet (twitter finder, map locater, reviews on stores..etc). I cant wait for it in practical use!

I read some stuff about AR a while ago and thought it was pretty interesting, but the only video I had to associate it with was this one:

I then thought that AR's sole future was for hentai bastards and never looked into it again. -_-

Thank you for making this topic and showing me that people are actually using it for other purposes. :goodjob:

That looks sweet :lust: ... I'd take one for the AC team and buy it if it were affordable :puppyeyes:

*Strider~kun, goku~kun ... we shall have our hands on this soon, SOOOOOOOOONNN :toughguy:*


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
