Sight – Amazing video showing a potential future of augmented reality

by: SamJuly 27, 2012

A wonderful video has been created to exhibit a potential future of visually augmented reality. Perhaps an eventual evolution of existing projects such as Google Glass.

This exceptional short film lets you see through the eyes of a ‘Sight’ user. ‘Sight’ is a fictional electronic contact lens system that utilizes Heads-Up-Displays and alters your perception of an environment. Not only is an incredible feat of special effects, but it brings to life so many ideas for augmented reality you have surely thought of these past few months.

Here is the original video on Vimeo, in full HD for your enjoyment. Let us know your thoughts, as always.

    Interesting how Gizmodo (at least the Brazilan one, but it usually comprises translations of the North-American one, so…) actually uses this video to showcase how non-desirable and creepy such future is. Now I’m actually curious to watch it — saved it for later.

    This was a great film. Anyone else notice the SwiftKey and ICS/Honeycomb system when Mr. Creepy was reprogramming his date?

    The future of advertising is Augmented Reality. Because, it able to cross the limitations of digital advertising and traditional print ads through that builds a comprehensive methodology by connecting these two different phenomenons in a single view and enriching the users experience by interacting and entertaining.
