How would you feel if your favorite celebrity was actually in your world? You could go shopping with them, or go to the movies with them, or even just hang out on your couch and watch television together, like old friends! OK, maybe I’m getting ahead of myself here; we’re not at that level yet…but these two technologies are so impressive that they literally allow us to bring people right into our world. Virtual Reality (VR) allows us to experience anything we can imagine, and Near Field Technology allows us to use these VR experiences right in front of us.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is famous for leading Apple’s dramatic comeback. It’s no secret that VR is on track to become a major player in technology. It only makes sense that Apple would consider their own take on it.
“The idea is that you will eventually use your avatar to meet with people in a virtual space that replicates the feeling of being in an actual room with them,” Gates wrote. Gates said that the pandemic has accelerated technological changes that otherwise would have taken years. Under his vision, Gates said VR goggles and motion capture gloves would be needed to accurately capture a user’s body language, voice, and facial expressions while in the metaverse.
I’m dubbing him Blue Steak. Although Bezos isn’t necessarily a celebrity, he’s as close to one as you can get. He was also voted most influential person in business by Fortune Magazine for 2017. His counterpart is Elon Musk – SpaceX, Tesla, PayPal, SolarCity…you name it; Jeff Bezos also wants to Sell Magic Glasses. The main ideas is when you put them on you can start watching a movie, then pause and check your surroundings without taking them off. Smart glasses that can switch in and out of transparency might offer the best of both words, providing a big and immersive image while not completely isolating their wearers from the rest of the world.
Mark Zuckerberg has a vision for the future, and it involves a lot less stuff. “You want to play a board game? You snap your fingers, and here’s the board game,” he said, motioning to the coffee table. “You want to watch TV?” he gestured to the flat screen up on the wall. “You don’t need a physical hardware TV, you buy a one-dollar app ‘TV’ and put it on the wall.” – he said. “The tools today are primitive,” Zuckerberg told Recode, referring to face filters and games like Pokémon. “And people aren’t using primitive tools because they prefer primitive tools. They’re using primitive tools because we’re still early on the journey to creating better tools.”
Virtual Reality’s Ambassador to Outer Space : Bringing distant worlds, moons, stars, planets, nebulas and black holes into our homes is something that sci-fi movies have long promised. Now it’s happening in our living rooms (and at IMAX theaters). And SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is pushing us beyond simple visuals with his support of virtual reality. Imagine putting on a pair of goggles and being able to explore Saturn’s rings or Mars’ surface as if you were really there.
Larry Page (left) is best known as co-founder of Google. Sergey Brin, who worked as a computer scientist with Page, was Google’s first president. Both were influenced by notable personalities who were revolutionary in their time. For instance, Sergey Brin is said to be heavily influenced by Stanley Kubrick’s interpretation of AI in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Similarly, Larry Page is said to have been inspired by Nikola Tesla for using alternating current rather than direct current for electrical purposes.
