Each year we are seeing advances in how we humans communicate and interact with our devices whether it’s the coolest new iPhone app or an integration of our social networks with our TV and gaming devices. Last night I watched a preview of The Surrogates movie with Bruce Willis. I normally love Bruce Willis movies so I am looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen.The premise is that in the future we will be able to have robotic surrogates of ourselves developed that we can operate from the comfort of our homes and send out into the world to live out our wildest fantasies and adventures..until of course it all goes horribly wrong and the plot thickens. Check out the preview below:
Scifi Fantisy or Future Reality? So is this just another Scifi fantasy? Or could this be were we are heading. The high tech gurus at Microsoft and other companies are working today on what is being called Gestural Computing combined with fine tuned motion sensors that will enable us to interact with our TV and devises like never before. Check out the Video below on what Microsoft is calling the Natal Project.
of course there examples that Microsoft uses are a little less Hollywood than the adventure with Bruce Willis but you see the direction of where the future is heading. In the Natal Project you can see a glimpse of the integration with Social Networking, eCommerce and collaboration technologies coming together. definitely something that would bring you back to our TV screen. Let’s just hope we don’t all turn into couch potatoes too soon! Don’t forget to get out and enjoy the day and talk to some real people!
