Welcome to Costco, I love you.

That was both amazingly awesome and fucking scary. I could get behind augmented reality, as long as my walls aren't billboards.
Even the benefits look like utter hell to me. That is way too much visual noise compared to any actual benefit.
Piece of shit keeps glitching out. That has to get annoying.
I must have this product. I forget how to make tea all the fucking time.
Just as long as you can turn it off in some other way than a bullet to the brain.
Okay, I draw my Ares Predator and look for Mr. Johnson.
(I'm so sorry.)
Don't be. I was thinking something very similar.
What kid of amateur needs recipes?
My company is doing this stuff. It's really weird.
ANYONE UP FOR A RL MEETING THIS WEEKEND?
It would really be interesting to see what that would do to a human psyche over a space of several years.
God knows the internet has just about destroyed my mind already.
This is so unrealistic, where is all the porn and warcraft wallpaper? At least pull your teabags out of goatse or something.

They could have could made it like you lived in a virtual Frank Lloyd Wright house or the Starship Enterprise instead of a shitty apartment, but no...literal wall-to-wall advertising. Who would willingly live like this?
"Well, I've made my tea -- time to turn the ads back up to 'legally blind' level!"
When he turns them on and off, there's a display showing an advertising income rate.
This makes perfect sense to me. Early augmented reality devices are likely to be subsidized by advertisers. The person here could be making some money, or helping pay off his device, by leaving it on full when possible, and turning it off when its inconvenient. There are already mobile phone apps that act similarly. Advertising free Frank Lloyd Wright devices would exist, but be far more expensive.
This is a cautionary tale, right?
This was intentionally disgusting, right?
1. Take any popular modern piece of technology.
2. Imagine what people from 20 years ago would have said of its possibilities and applications.
3. Now compare that to its actual present use.
I think its an appropriate level of cynicism.
Because this wont be used in an operating theater or nothing, let's show how it will make everyday life even more hellish than it is now. Fuck this technology, I hate it. There is nothing "augmented" about this reality, it is dehumanizing and whorish. Technology is supposed to make life longer and better, not make you a buttfuck toy for corporate bullshit. I already want to burn a building down because of this video.
