In The Infinite Retina, authors Irena Cronin and Robert Scoble attempt to answer that question by helping you understand where Spatial Computing – an augmented reality where humans and machines can interact in a physical space – came from, where it’s going, and why it’s so fundamentally different from the desktops or mobile phones that came before.
They present seven visions of the future and the industry verticals in which Spatial Computing has the most influence – transportation; technology; media and telecommunications; manufacturing; retail; health-care; finance; and education.
It also shares insights about the past, present and future from leading experts and other industry veterans and innovators, including Sebastian Thrun, Ken Bretschneider, and Hugo Swart. They dive into what they think will happen in Spatial Computing in the near and medium term, and also explore what it could mean for humanity in the long term.
The Infinite Retina then leaves it up to you to decide whether Spatial Computing is truly where the future of technology is heading or if it’s just an exciting, but passing, phase.
