future

Although augmented reality technologies are only in early stages of development, several artists have attempted to depict the world of the future where AR has become a pervasive technology. These three excellent videos imagine a world where augmented reality has become a part of everyday life, and highlight some of important issues that may be associated with the widespread adoption of these technologies.

Update: another video has come to my attention, this time depicting a future combining augmented reality and Facebook. Although the video is not that serious, displaying profile information as a floating tag cloud is an interesting possibility with augmented reality.
