A snapshot of the future – Augmented Reality

I was at the park over the weekend and was observing the world going by as I often do, when it struck me that more people than normal had their faces glued to their phone screens. It was only an hour or so later that I realised the reason for this and it was because everyone was playing the augmented realty game Pokemon Go.

Now what is augmented reality? One definition I found is that it is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a users view of the real world thus providing a composite view.

It can also be quite dangerous to have your eyes glued to the phone screen, and towards the end of the Vlog I share a short montage of people getting into trouble because they are not being mindful of the world around them and the dangers it can often present.

The reason for this Vlog is that we have a responsibility to take control of our lives and create the future that we want to see, and not just go with the flow only to wake up in ten years and realise that what we are living is not what we wanted.
