Summary
Google Glass is the new smartphone-with-camera-on-the-retina that listens to spoken commands and adds a permanent, visual layer to reality. Many parents are already complaining that their children are constantly submerged in displays and find it hard to pay any attention to the world outside their screens. What will it mean if those displays will become part of our own bodies? And if a second video version of all our experiences will become available? Backlight looks ahead through the eyes of the camera at reality and virtuality, and investigates how man and machine gradually become intertwined. Featuring Gordon Bell, author of Total Recall and Microsoft senior researcher; Nick Bostrom, founder of The Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University; and Ben Hammersley, editor-in-chief of Wired UK.
