The "Sight" Video: A Scary, Creepy Look Into The (Maybe) Near Future Of Augmented Reality

This "Sight" video is made by Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo whom are graduates of Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. This video is about a man named Patrick S. He works for a company called Sight Systems and he goes through his daily routine life in his apartment. He plays games, cooks dinner, watches TV and chooses his wardrobe all with the use of his optical in-plants displaying the augmented reality.

It seems that everybody on the planet is using them because he goes out on a dinner-date with a women named Daphne and she has them also.

They talk with each other while he uses a game-like app called "Wingman" in order the get the most optimal dating response from her.

The dinner-date goes well, she goes back to his apartment, sit down and have a drink, but as shes viewing his augmented reality walls. She sees his "achievement" wall (kind of like an XBOX 360 achievement system) and notices the Wingman achievement.

She gets disgusted by the fact that Patrick used an app on their date and decided to head home instead of being with a "game junkie".

But.. Here is the scariest part. As she's walking away he gives her the command to wait, she stops dead in her tracks, he accesses her profile in which he's giving her new commands and then he says "lets try this again"

Sends a chill up my spine.

Scary to think that this might be soon a reality for everybody but I know that I wouldn't want that in my head. I want my God given free will, not somebodies robot.  I'll stick with interacting with the real world and turn on my XBOX 360 when I want to and not having an augmented reality on all the time. Especially now that Google is toying with the idea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZczX6qleV4Q
 
Eran and Daniel made this high production value video most likely with a Adobe product, not sure, but I could probably bet that they did and I would like to know with what.

Enjoy the video and I will see you guys later.

What is Photoshop Lightroom 3 ?

So what is Photoshop Lightroom 3 ?

Photoshop Lightroom 3 is made by Adobe Systems and is used for managing large amounts of digital photos for Photoshop users. It's available for Windows and Mac users with both the regular version and Student and Teacher version. It's stand alone software so you don't need to go out and get Photoshop CS5, it will work on just about any digital photo you have on your hard drive (Believe me, I just downloaded the trial version and it imported, from all the pics that I took to the individual graphics pictures that are on the templates of my websites! Amazing!).



What does Photoshop Lightroom 3 do?

Aside from the mentioned management of large amounts of photos you can adjust the sharpness, contrast, color, reduce noise, edit areas you target and much, much more. From my research, if you have Photoshop CS5, you supposedly can integrate Photoshop Lightroom 3 with that to make some really nice panoramic photos and more! After you edit your photos you can publish them on your website or easily on sites like Facebook, Flickr and SmugMug. It works with 64 bit OS for better picture quality.



What do people think of Photoshop Lightroom 3 ?

There are some people I found who bought Photoshop Lightroom 3, and here are some snippets of what they had to say about it.



Awesome software for enhancing images. Very user friendly!!”

Mjohnson175 – Dell.com






Lightroom3 is a fantastic piece of software that is an excellent tool for the professional or serious amateur.”
Bass Lake “Dan” - Amazon.com






This software is absolutely amazing.” “This is a must have for those who are dedicated professionals in the field of digital photography.”
Gbacurin -BestBuy.com



I'm not an advocate for Adobe Systems but it was hard to find people who thought that Photoshop Lightroom 3 wasn't all that they had hoped for. For the most part the few people that were “nitpicky” still liked the software and was glad they bought it.



If You Were Ever Going To Buy Photoshop Lightroom 3, Now Is The Time...

In order to stay competitive with the big online retailers, Adobe Systems are cutting the price of Photoshop Lightroom 3 substantially. You can buy Photoshop Lightroom 3 at 30% off with purchase of Photoshop CS5. This is a limited time offer so get it before they jack the price back up!

What is Adobe?

Adobe is......?


What is Adobe you ask, well, one of the definitions used  for the word is that of the clay, sand and water mixture that people still use after hundreds of years in hot climate countries for building houses( for a more detailed definition of what I previously mentioned click on what is adobe ). 

The second definition, and the most commonly used in this day and age, is that of the company that makes some of the best software in the business, Adobe Systems. Yes, that's right, the company that made Photoshop and PDF (with Adobe Acrobat ) is the Adobe that we have come to love and appreciate through the recent years. So when I think of adobe, I don't think of mud, hay and manure, but I think about how great a website looks with Dreamweaver and all of it's functionality of a complete HTML editor(and all the other languages it supports), FTP and much, much more. Adobe houses aren't made in a flash, but Flash is made in the house of Adobe (especially after buying out Macromedia in 2005 and improving on the Adobe Flash product and many more products they acquired). Adobe After Effects is the way to put in special effects after you shoot your live action scenes in that sci-fi movie you want to put on You Tube.

What should you do about Adobe?

I could go on and on about how great Adobe products are but I will save the rant and rave for more posts. Adobe Systems claims "With a reputation for excellence and a portfolio of many of the most respected and recognizable software brands, Adobe is one of the world’s largest and most diversified software companies." and with all the great products that they produce and all of the millions of people that enjoy and prosper from using them, there's no doubt in my mind that their statement is true.....period! So If you want to make your website or other creative computer project better, then


start saving money!<<-
