AR320S - Building Magic: How XR Can and Will Give Us Super Powers

Session Description

When we think of comic book heroes, we often think of characters with impossible abilities gained through ridiculous pseudo-scientific or supernatural means. But over the course of the 20th and 21st centuries, humans have made a habit of turning what pop culture media imagines, into reality. This has been true, for the most part, in the realm of Science Fiction: Think of the Tri Corders seen in Captain Kirk's Star Trek - aren't those a lot like modern smartphones? Or how about the self-driving cars in seen Knight Rider and Total Recall? How about editing our genes (CRISPR)? Cloning? AI? The list goes on. But as compelling as that may be to think about, our ability to make reality out of once-fictional pop culture imaginings is about to take on an even more unrealistic genre: Fantasy. Welcome to a trippy, but very real, introduction to the wild near-future world where humanity is inventing functional Magic through immersive technologies. During this talk, attendees will learn about where XR is headed and, perhaps more importantly, why it is nearly inevitable that we are headed in that direction, all through a unique social and technological lens. Attendees can look forward to leaving this keynote with a glimpse of a future to be excited about. One filled with augmented abilities, new layers of ways to interact with & affect the world, and more natural, human ways to complete tasks that frustrate us in the current human-computer interaction paradigm.
