As technology rapidly evolves, we ask “How will people share their Living the Dream stories in the future?” Well there are two products soon to be released that will drastically shape the way we capture life; Google Glass and Myo.
Glass is capable of taking photos, recording videos, looking up answers on Google, showing reminders (such as for a flight) and sharing whatever you’re looking at — either via messaging or through a Google+ Hangout. As Google co-founder data, Sergey Brin revealed previously, Glass will also have an automatic picture-taking mode, snapping pics at a preset intervals (such as every 5 seconds).
MYO is able to measure electrical activity in your muscles instantly. The result is a seamless way to interact with computers, and a truly magical sense of control.
Want to see how Glass actually feels? It’s surprisingly simple. Say “take a picture” to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live. Directions are right in front of you. Speak to send a message, or translate your voice. Get the notifications that matter most. Ask whatever’s on your mind and get answers without having to ask.
All video footage captured through Glass.
Want to see the Myo armband in action? This video shows someone scrolling by waving two fingers in the air (mimicking the standard OS X trackpad gesture), snapping fingers to start iTunes playing, rotating a fist to increase the volume, holding up a hand in a ‘stop’ motion to pause a video, gesturing backwards to rewind a video and snapping fingers to play the video. The demo also illustrates a variety of other uses for the device, from delivering a presentation to controlling a remotely-operated vehicle.
Unlike Microsoft Kinect, no camera is required, but the armband approach means it will work only with gestures made with one hand rather than detecting whole-body movements.
What would you prefer using to capture your Living the Dream story? Check out the videos and let us know in the comments.
While you are waiting to get your hands on one of these, submit your Living the Dream story today! Regardless how new or old your technology is, your story deserves to be shared!
