This is, once you think about it, a total no brainer. As are most good ideas.
And it’s really freaking awesome.
The time has already come where it’s increasingly easy to fake things in video post production FX so that you can make videos appear to be “real” when they aren’t. Augmented Reality technology lets us apply things to the reality we are viewing, typically through glasses. If I’m wearing the glasses I can see the augmentations while if you aren’t wearing glasses, or you don’t have my exact same augmentation system and parameters, you can’t.
This projects a new reality onto the real world *for everyone present to witness* in real time.
This can make the reality you witness with your own eyes suspect. This doesn’t just augment reality, it can modify everyone’s perception of it.
