True Augmented/Virtual Reality will happen after this invention

We now access the internet from flat computer screens but this will not be the case when VR/AR technologies mature. Current VR/AR technologies are no different from the mainframes of the 70s. They are allowing us to explore a new form of presenting information and although it's not yet time for them to hit primetime, these technologies are the future and must be continuously developed.

Without much ado, True VR/AR will happen when we reach a level of miniaturization that allow us to put everything we now have on the headset in a piece of contact lens. It is clear from the current clunkiness we see in the device, albeit very sophisticated, is far from this future ideal but eventually, we will get there. 

Remember that the invisible chips we now have been once table to room size devices and even at that the microscopic chips we have now outperform the room size ones a billion times. This trend towards progressive ephemeralization will continue till we have the current VR headsets the size of contact lenses. That is when the true VR/AR tech will become indispensable just like the computer and the internet of today.

So for now we must keep innovating in software while the hardware engineers solve the harder problems of hardware. We must keep finding out the killer app for this new environment just like the browser was the killer app that really made computer's mainstream after the Word processor.


  1. I'm more than happy I found this page since you've about Virtual Immersive Marketing gave a lot of supportive data on it. Much thanks to you for giving this data.

  2. Thank you for sharing this article, it is informative and useful for the future. It helps to learn quickly and cure people's problems. This technology is easily understandable. Virtual Reality In Nursing Education is provide complete skills for learning and how to use patience.

Next Steps Towards Strong Artificial Intelligence

What is Intelligence? Pathways to Synthetic Intelligence If you follow current AI Research then it will be apparent to you that AI research, the deep learning type has stalled! This does not mean that new areas of application for existing techniques are not appearing but that the fundamentals have been solved and things have become pretty standardized.

What is Intelligence: Software writing Software

Sometimes I wonder why programmers are hell-bent on writing programs that can communicate in natural language and not even putting adequate effort into writing programs that write other programs. Maybe is because of the natural tendency to protect one's source of livelihood by not attempting to automate it away or maybe because writing programs is hard enough such that contemplating of writing some program that writes programs might be even harder.

Virtual Reality is the next platform

VR Headset. Source: It's been a while now since we started trying to develop Virtual Reality systems but so far we have not witnessed the explosion of use that inspired the development of such systems. Although there are always going to be some diehard fans of Virtual Reality who will stick to improving the medium and trying out stuff with the hopes of building a killer app, for the rest of us Virtual Reality still seems like a medium that promises to arrive soon but never really hits the spot.
