The Infinity Augmented Reality Concept Video

Tough three minutes to get through, but trust me, it’s worth it. Not even sure where to start with this concept. Our protagonist uses his glasses to cheat at billiards and glean personal information and analyze the emotional responses of a bartender he’s hitting on. (You’d think his smart glasses would help him order something more specific than “whiskey”.)

Heads-up displays and augmented reality are coming, no doubt. But a lot of the people who are excited about it today seem to be men with very troubling issues. (Via Alexis Madrigal’s Five Intriguing Things newsletter.)
