Get Ready for Planet Earth Go
Welcome to the photonic era. Wired founder Kevin Kelly predicts that in 10 years, we’ll see a far more sophisticated version of what Pokémon Go gave us a taste of: a “mirror world” where everything we see through augmented reality eyewear will be mapped out and labeled. We — and robots — will interact with that world in ways we haven’t imagined, and ways we have, like leaving digital notes for friends when they visit a place we’ve been to.
What’s wrong with this 3-D picture? It’ll require total surveillance, with cameras everywhere, and battles over data and centralization.
