Project Glass is a glimpse of not-so-distant future. And so is this video clip shot with Blue Mars Mobile. We will soon view the world through an electronic window that seamlessly blends the physical and the virtual, the atomic and the digital. That means we can each be seeing our own private version of our shared physical space. When I look at you, I’ll be able to replace your actual form with the avatar of my choosing. Clothed or naked. Male or female. Human or alien. It’s just a matter of time. Assuming civilization doesn’t collapse while we’re waiting.
If you’d like to read about the confluence of serendipity that led me to shoot the video, I’ve posted the personal side of the story in Botgirl’s Identity Circus.
