    Augmented (hyper)Reality: Domestic Robocop

    The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it.

    A film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture, part of a larger project about the social and architectural consequences of new media and augmented reality.

    this actually made me excited and gave me a headache trying to watch it and imagine that I would never take my AR glasses off to see what the real world looks like in the future. especially if I can get KFC and Wendy's up in my face all the time... however god bless the potential, I would just hope we humans temper it with wisdom - rather than become puppets to the corporation with the biggest budget... imagine if they could feed into your dreams. for that matter you might be able to vicariously live through a surrogate, or yelp, or google maps, or google my house. there you go. imagine google has a virtual map of your house including your belongings, from the couch you could call up a search box and input "car keys" and BLAM. they are in your coat pocket under the cat blanket on the side of the easy chair.
