Concept Glasses to Photoshop Reality

Good magazine has apparently asked some interviewees to imagine that will improve their daily life. The two ladies in the video below, Freya Estreller and Natasha Case, came up with Photoshop Glasses. A first step to improving the world may be seeing how much better it could be:

If you happen to think that’s a far fetched idea, you are probably right. However, we already saw head tracking software that puts on virtual masks on faces. So maybe in your next job interview, if the interviewer just looks a tad like your ex-boyfriend, all you’ll need to do is wear some dorky glasses, and see him as Optimus Prime.

  1. This is certainly the AR target for us to aim for.
    A completely customizable, reasonable world.
    The photoshop analogy is a very powerful one to me, as it also neatly illustrates the idea of layering stuff onto the world.

    I find it fascinating to think of the long term implications of a world where everyone can make anything look like (almost) anything else.

  2. I get a little depressed for humanity reading those youtube comments though.
    Do people run into cinemas and shout “FAKE!” at the cinema screen?
