Augmented Reality Use Cases

image

Augmented Reality is going to radically change the nature of how people interact, affecting society in drastic and surprising ways.  Glass is only the very beginning.  

I will use it for all of the following:

  1. Navigational HUD while biking long distance and skiing.
  2. Tag/recognize/identify/research people I meet automatically.
  3. Black box audio/video records (e.g., for evidence in a court case or to record an emergent event involving the police).
  4. Straight-up teleprompter
  5. Slide Previews and talking points when lecturing
  6. Display sheet music while playing my trumpet
  7. Live tone analysis/tuning data while playing my trumpet
  8. Heart rate and pace information HUD for running/skiing
  9. Have a virtual pet that only I (or people I share data with) can see and interact with.
  10. Live sideband communication
  11. Automatic identification of landmarks and structures
  12. CounterStrike-like RADAR in paintball/airsoft
  13. Ammo counter in paintball/airsoft
  14. Automatically tag where I parked my car and navigate back
  15. Automatically scan/link any business card I see
  16. Automatically look up nutritional information of any food I see
  17. Automatically translate any non-English words I see
  18. HUD for component status when recording audio/video in the studio
  19. Crazy AR games
  20. Enhanced vision (compressed spectrum, zoom, wide angle, rear view)

That’s 20 life-changing things (at least for my own personal life) that will happen with AR.  Not can: will.  It’s just a matter of time. And this list took me all of five minutes to compile; I could drop fifty more in a heartbeat.

Imagine a future where you never forget someone’s name.   Imagine a future where someone’s Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and a google search about them are already in your eye the first time you meet them.  Imagine a future where the douchbag stranger approaching you at a party has already been flagged a douchbag by your friend downstairs, and can thus be avoided. 

Better, for many of these, it’s a matter of time only as a matter of software.  The glasses are just IO.  The hardware is pretty-much there.  Just watch what the devs do with this.
