Domestic Robocop – Augmented (Hyper) Reality

This is a very interesting futuristic film, from student Keiichi Matsuda, produced for his Masters degree in architecture in order to show how todays electronic media could have an impact on future architecture, personal space and living.   Read more about it here.

It portrays a future where augmented reality is ubiquitous, and the information overlays are, well essentially all advertising.  Want to sell the surfaces of your kitchen to coca cola?  Well, maybe in this future it would be possible – unless someone manages to create the 3d, AR vesion of adblock …

Interesting extrapolation of the current tech.  Well worth a watch.
