If you’re not already psyched about the Google Glasses, allow me to debrief you on what’s been going on in the world while you were stuck under that rock. The world’s biggest tech giant is literally going to alter the way we look at the world. Augmented reality is right around the corner and you’d better be ready for the revolution.
Imagine information instantaneously distributed into your field of vision about whatever you happen to be focusing on. That’s exactly what the Google Glasses are going to do for you. Beyond the obvious advances that are coming with these techno-spectacles (instant point of view recordings, Robocop-like HUD displays and, if you’ve got a zoom for a camera, surely telescopic vision can’t be too far away, etc.), there are a myriad of mind-blowing possibilities when every question you could ever think to ask can be answered by simply nodding and speaking aloud.
Perhaps even more exciting, is the fact that this first wave of wearable technology marks the very beginning of the blurring of the line between man and machine. As time goes on, we’re beginning to mesh with technology at an astounding rate. With cybernetic limbs and artificial eye implants coming out that allow the lame to walk and the blind to see, the technological singularity prophesied by Ray Kurzweil is starting to sound a lot more like an inevitability than the science fiction that it was originally labeled.
Kurzweil is a renowned futurist and Google’s director of engineering, and has described the Google Glasses as a “solid first step” towards the moment when man creates a computer that can exceed the cognitive power of a human brain, otherwise known as the “Technological Singularity.” Kurzweil has been an avid proponent of this theory, and predicts that it could happen by the year 2045. This epoch would signal the end of physical death for all of human kind, a time when humans could upload their very consciousness into a virtual realm, effectively becoming immortal.
And it all starts with some spiffy new specs.
It seems that as computers become more advanced, they slowly get closer and closer to integrating directly into human biology. When they’re sitting on your desk one decade, your pocket the next, and moving towards your skull shortly thereafter, it’s not too difficult to imagine where they might end up next.
