Mixed Reality & the Future of Design (Part I)
1 day ago
“We are now in a major technological revolution. Like that of the dawn of the PC or smartphone. It’s not so much of a prediction as an observation we can make. We can see that it’s actually happening before our eyes.” – Austin Knight
This entire conversation is an exploration into what Austin believes is the biggest renaissance for design and technology since the invention of the PC.
We both bring our own unique roles to this conversation. I initially take on the role of one who’s sincerely concerned with the social/cultural implications of having a device strapped on our heads, or spectacles always drawing our attention away from the human right in front of us. However, like in any good story, you will see my character arc in this very special two-part series when we uncover the potential of just how much good these nascent technologies can do for humans.
Austin’s role in the conversation is as one I like to call a glad scientist. He’s been diving deep into VR, AR, and the new cool kid on the block…MR (Mixed Reality) for quite some time now and as you can hear in his voice and articulation of where we are now, and especially where we’re going, is super-excited about what this means for designers, problem-solving and even entirely untapped revenue streams.
Fasten your seatbelt Toto…because we’re definitely not in Kansas anymore!
