The Twisted Realities
There are already a wealth of examples of XR (AR, VR, Metaverse) being used in different industries and usecases.
Introduction to XR (AR/VR/MR/Metaverse/Spatial Computing)
Usecases of XR
Concerns and Challenges
The way ahead
The event titled “Twisted Reality” curated by the organizers truly captured the essence of XR (Extended Reality). The intriguing
title itself hinted at the fusion of technology and the human experience. We started into the fascinating world
of Generative AI, starting with the creation of the title image using MidJourney. This saved us from committing a crime of not talking about AI :)
Setting the stage
To set the stage, I playfully introduced myself as the real Kuldeep Singh, only to reveal that the version of me on the Zoom screen was an artificial replica.
This realization raises an intriguing question: What we see and hear during live conferences is nothing more than a digital representation, and we have become so immersed in this technology that we hardly notice the distinction between reality and its extension.
Reality has NO Reality
Then we tried to understand the reality on what we see, hear, sense or feel, along with physics and science of things in the environment.
We concluded our understanding that reality has no reality backed by these two gentlemen -
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one" - Albert Einstein
“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real” - Niels Bohr
eXtending the Reality
The event shed light on the fact that our perception of reality has already been altered and augmented by technology. It challenged us to reflect on the deep integration of digital experiences in our lives and the implications it holds for our future.
