Could Pokémon GO be considered art? Journalist Virginia Heffernan believes the game bears the hallmarks of great art — exploration, movement (of the soul or the soles), and a call to instinct. Heffernan's book is "Magic and Loss: The Internet as Art" (http://goo.gl/Ertv9O).

Transcript - Pokémon GO has suffused my life. I'm the mother of two fairly young children, 11 and seven almost and they both took to it so quickly. And one of the features of any service or game that swamps our minds is that feeling that you've almost been waiting for it. Sometimes I think about Geriatric 1929, an early user of YouTube, who said when he first saw YouTube he had been an RAF pilot. He's a pensioner in England. He had lived in a state of depression having lost his wife remembering his heyday using radar and sonar during the war. And when YouTube first appeared it was like where have you been all my life? This is what I want to do. I want to be able to communicate with huge numbers of people through the ether. That doesn't appeal to everyone, but it appealed to many of us when we saw YouTube for the first time.

The same thing happened with Pokémon GO. You looked at it, and we've been on the brink of playing with what augmented reality might be for a long time looking at our phones, looking at maps and juxtaposing that with real life and toggling between an experience of looking at screens and looking at real life. And sometimes one is more compelling and sometimes the other is more compelling. Pokémon GO in juxtaposing its little creatures onto the world, it's almost as though, it is as though we've been like almost training for this in our dreams. The onboarding for Pokémon GO is so simple. There's so little to learn. At the same time I was learning that I was trying to play Magic: the Gathering for the card game and there was so much friction in my learning it. I knew that I would be part of a unique cadre if I learned it, and it's very complicated and esoteric, but I just kept getting thrown off the experience.

How Augmented Reality Will Change Education Completely | Florian Radke | TEDxGateway
00:09:23

16 Views · 3 years ago

Florian Radke talks about how Augmented reality is not a toy, it’s a powerful tool that will help solve some of the worlds biggest problems. If we do it right, it can be the next great platform for education, human connection and productivity. Like Iron man, we all will soon be surrounded by data and 3D models that we can interact with, as early as the year 2025.


Florian is currently leading communications at Meta, an augmented reality (AR) company that is one of the companies at the forefront of designing our AR future. Meta’s focus is not on creating experiences that distract or pull us out of the real world, but rather that enhance our natural environments and facilitate greater learning and communication than has been available before.
The possible applications range from more immersive classroom learning to a collaborative creative tool that can be used in real time to bring storytellers together from around the world.


This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Mashable Chief Correspondent Lance Ulanoff traveled to San Francisco, California to try out the new HoloLens Developers Edition. But don't get excited quite yet, because, for now, it is only available for developers and businesses, consumers are gonna have to wait. It's important to keep in mind that the HoloLens is almost the opposite of virtual reality. While VR cuts you off from the outside world, the HoloLens enhances your world, creating what's sometimes called “mixed reality.”
