Our present reality is becoming uber paranormal. With technology that exists in the governmental sphere, as well as what resides on the consumer market, you can’t help but think holy s***. Technology has experienced an exponential growth unlike anything else we have seen on this planet. Within a century, society has gone from using tollbooth phones, to full high resolution touch screen phones. Furthermore, a standard phone is equipped with the internet, high pixel cameras, GPS, voice command, bluetooth and more. This advent in technology would have shocked the socks off of just about everyone only 20 years ago. Not to mention that this is just the technology that has become available on the market, and not some of the technology that is still under study and not quite to the market yet. With robots that an now assemble a car, perform open heart surgery, and operate a vehicle, its hard to imagine what technology will not be able to do in the future for us. Operating systems are starting to drive planes, trains and automobiles, so its becoming worry-some as to what we humans are going to be left to do.
One thing is certain so far, we will always be needed to use it, especially when it comes to entertainment. The entertainment market has been exploding with modern advancements in gaming, computing, and virtual reality among other things. Oculus Rift, Facebook’s recent 2 billion dollar purchase is changing how the world is going to experience entertainment. Beginning with a strong focus on gaming, it is not hard to imagine it being incorporated into many aspects of our daily lives. With full immersion capabilities, it should not be surprising to see this used in video conferencing, movies, virtual tours and more.
Perhaps even more stunning is the potential for holographic displays. We have all certainly seen this fantasized in movies like Star Wars, but does it have any real footing in reality. It looks like it does now.
The potential for holographic imaging is paranormal in its own right. Imagine holographic Skype sessions with friends and co-workers. Or imagine holographic movies displayed from your tablet, traditional 3-D movies will be history. Imagine too what this will do for education, what if doctors were able to see full dimensional holograms of internal organs. Or what about automotive technicians having access to full holographic images of auto parts. This can make training much more effective in certain fields, and give greater access to more detailed information for the general public. I’m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg with what holographic imaging can do for society, and I’m sure we will see this play out sooner than we thought.
