If you’ve read the novel Rainbows End or seen the anime series Denno Coil or read the short story I had posted a while back about the Digital Sea. Then you understand what fully rendered augmented reality is. It’s all around us, all the time and it creates opportunities for manipulating reality that human beings have never experienced before except through movies.
The video below, while merely a concept video, does an exceptional job of explaining how a fully rendered world would work. This concept, however, is a long way from our current reality. We’re probably five years away from true augmented vision and then to begin to digitally construct the world, so we can bend reality, would take another decade at least.
But if you’re unfamiliar with the potential of augmented reality, the possibilities it intuits under the papervision we’re currently experiencing, then I recommend viewing the below video. The narrator (Albert) explains that he’ll be doing more in a series and I hope he does, because I think the video would be recommended viewing for anyone who has difficulty understanding how augmented reality might work in the future.
