先日行ってきたSXSW、たまにうちの展示について書いてくれた記事を見つけると、やっぱり嬉しいものです。 広告代理店や大企業関連の記事が優遇される世の中で、こういうインデペンデントな人たちが自発的に書いてくれる評価は特に！ “First up was the Virtual Drone exhibit, which a fairly unassuming Japanese company, Xooms, had developed and was showcasing in the exhibition hall. Here you could fly a virtual 3D drone around the hall and shoot at objects that would explode in the air around you. This worked by fixing stereo cameras to the external casing of the VR headsets (look closely at the photo below) and then combining the virtual overlay with the video feed of the real world environment creating a pretty seamless mixed reality experience. The thing that’s surprising about all this is that a U.S company called Magic Leap raised USD$1.4B off of the back of a special effects video which implied they had already built similar tech. We’ve all since discovered they’re far from it. Meanwhile Xooms has got on with building it. Something tells me the guys at Xooms deserve much greater attention in the Valley!”
When reading an article, I came across a phrase "a bicycle for our minds" which I didn't understand the meaning of. So, I googled the phrase and found this movie.
Thanks for the digital age we live in.
The merging of humans and machines is happing now.
(I think Japanese government wants to develop advanced technologies so quickly and powerfully that they authorized a pretty much budget for technological research in military field more than ever before. But I don't think money solves the problem. Before distributing money, they should build a powerful research organization, in a sense, like DARPA, though I'm not for military research activities in general.
