“Everything that glitter ain’t gold.”
As the technology becomes more and more advanced, we are seeing products come to market that has me thinking twice. And one of these innovations is AR (augmented reality). Augmented reality for those unaware is an interactive real world experience computer generated. You are the person able to interpret the real world scenario you are witnessing, but no one else. The opportunities are endless when using AR, but there is a downside to the introduction of AR. And the distraction is the downside that comes with the technology. When we as society become too enamored with the fictitious world we have created for ourselves and the one we actually live.
Remember I said that the opportunities are endless. When looking at the medical industry, we have to acknowledge the ability to pull up the patients anatomy in this augmented reality. And the use of certain x-ray machines are no longer necessary. You can literally pinpoint the problem and show the patient in real time. But the downside of the AR capabilities are people using them daily life walking up the street. This is where it becomes problematic. You have to be able to look at this from a space of context. As long as it’s in the right hands.
Even with the obstacles presented there is still life. We have an ability for new industries to start popping up. Ways that we never thought we could make an income will soon become popular. So ultimately, the introduction of AR will be beneficial. We have to work out all the kinks, and then we will learn to use the devices. Remember, people felt this same way about cell phones. And with the accidents that do occur, we still have a very thriving society.
