Mobile AR Is White Hot

Hall 3

This presentation will discuss the key ideas in my book “Charlie Fink’s Metaverse, An AR Enabled Guide to AR & VR”: (1) Technology succeed when it takes what we are already doing and makes it better; (2) People are the killer app; (3) we always overestimate the short term and underestimate the long term. To this, I would add two insights, which I’ll discuss in some detail. First, the world is going to be painted with invisible data. How will it work? How will we see it? What will we use it for? Second, VR and AR are still wrongly conflated and use confusing terminology. We can’t even agree on what to call things. I will also talk about my follow up book, coming out in March 2019, “Painted With Data”, which is a deep dive into the many modes of AR.
