Clay Bavor, who heads up Google’s Virtual and Augmented Realities published this piece yesterday in advance of the company’s announcements today. In it, he frames the longer view on what he calls “immersive computing.” It’s a worthwhile read to help put this next paradigm in computing into perspective.

Google won’t be building its own headsets (at least initially), but is instead partnering with Qualcomm, HTC, and Lenovo to release a reference design that will result in actual products. Here’s Bavor talking about the new World Sense technology behind this work, which is key for meshing AR/VR with the physical world:

Also, it’s worth looking at how Google is partnering with artists to use its Tilt Brush to create new forms of artistic expression:

  1. How telling is it that he wrote that on Medium, and his last post here was Dec 2014?

  2. To be fair though, Brian Fields, a piece of that length, complexity and design would not work here on G+, right?

  3. I suppose so, although I’ve seen other G+ers at least share their Medium posts here.

    Googlers aren’t even using their own social platform for sharing news and updates.

  4. Yeah, that is a problem, Brian Fields.

  5. Of course tech will lead the way of deciding the yes or no especially of those less potentially in algorithm conceptualisation
