Augmented Reality is a bit less worked more buzz worded terminology. Augmented Reality has possibilities just like what Pranav Mistry shown with SixthSense. I am not talking about the Sixth Sense I wrote before in my personal weired blog, if you have not heard of Pranav Mistry’s SixthSense, wait we will tell it about it too along with some details on Augmented Reality.
What is this Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality is the computer-based extension of the perception of reality. In contrast to virtual reality, in which the user is completely immersed in a virtual world, augmented reality in the presentation of additional information is paramount. For the visual modality, this leads to more severe requirements for the positioning ( tracking ) and calibration. So Augmented Reality can be implemented through just applications like we wrote about some Android Apps, or can be made like an wearable computer – like Pranav Mistry’s SixthSense. This SixSense is a small wearable device which supports gestural interface. Like in the image below, Pranav is doing a gesture to take photo :
Augmented Reality, Cyborg and my current thoughts and works
My initial thoughts were around telerobotics. My thought was to reduce the burden of bills. I wasted time and money (in a money-less condition) understanding the logics and programing a modern robotic surgical unit works – like da Vinchi. Then Cyborg draw my attention.
So the future of Augmented Reality is on the people who can think a bit eccentrically. We need more understanding of our neural networks. And yes, there will be a day when deployment of Augmented Reality can make to get your heart rate and some details right in front of my eyes. And think of this application of Augmented Reality in an Operation Theater.
For now you can imagine surgeons will do gestures like a magician to perform an OT.
