Anton Musgrave New Winners

Any business that's serious about relationships will be at the forefront of the technologies driving this outcome and will understand how to embrace the opportunities in their business, way ahead of the competition. Think of private banks rebuilding trust, smashed after the debt crisis, in entirely new ways! Think of bringing the horror of war to every citizen in the world and that driving a wave of popular opposition to war. Think of the impact of making any burden real and live for everyone...from environmental disasters to poverty...and the world uniting, after really experiencing it first hand, in making sure these things are eradicated.

Think of it as another option for when you get 'old' - then the old ways may not work anymore!!!

Anyway - if you can't tell the difference between the real and the virtual - what's the difference?

You remind me that today's youngsters never even think about the technology they are using - to them it's just like 'air' or 'breathing' - you never think about it till it's gone!

Doug Vining Format war looms over 3D TV

The public will soon be able to choose between several incompatible 3D television systems – but which will go the way of the Betamax video tape?

Doug Vining Amazing 3D immersion technology

“The cave (or iCube, as we’re told they would prefer we call it) is comprised of three white walls and a floor, all about 10' x 10' in size. Onto each surface is projected a high-resolution, stereoscopic image. A viewer stands in the room wearing polarized 3D glasses — like you might use in a 3D movie — with small markers that stick out a bit from the frames. The markers are illuminated by IR LED floodlights located on the perimeter of the room, and IR-sensitive cameras use those positions to determine the precise location of each eye within the room. From those positions, stereo images for each projector are calculated and rendered on the fly, and the result is absolutely amazing.”

Doug Vining Going out with an AR girlfriend

Well, we don't have the holo deck virtual telepresence dating service quite yet, but this guy had a stroll in the park with his virtual girl - which reminds me of that MindBullet we published a few years back called VIRTUALLY PERFECT.
A FuturesForum post (titled: "Going out with an AR girlfriend") refers to this MindBullet. The full FuturesForum post can be read here: http://www.futureworld.org/PublicZone/FuturesForum/BlogDetails.aspx?PostID=783cf6fa-fb62-4dc5-a201-301da7943125

Doug Vining Virtual vacations, by teleporter

As we imagined in a scenario many years ago, once sensory data can be effectively 'teleported' around the world, if you are too busy to go on vacation, why not get the vacation to come to you?

The future is closer than you think!
