  5. 5. WiMAX Media Clock<br />Morning breaks and Dad’s WiMax-enabled alarm clock awakes him to live news projected on the ceiling above his head<br />
  6. 6. Mail-in-View<br />He checks his email on the e-window of the television and clicks a link to watch a video of the so-called Spiderman being arrested yet again in Kuala Lumpur<br />
  7. 7. Menu Minder<br />In the kitchen, dad check’s the fridge screen which shows him what he’s eaten recently and suggests a breakfast based on the recommendations of his online virtual nutritionist<br />
  8. 8. Traffic Crowd<br />On his ride to the office he gets realtime traffic information streamed to his device based on live data collected from location analysis of other drivers <br />
  9. 9. Car Talk<br />Dad opens a voice chat room streamed through his car stereo inviting other drivers nearby to join or listen in… the topic of the day is politics and chat room is hopping<br />@#!$#WE$@$ and !!!$@W#<br />@#!$#WE$@$ and !!!$@W#<br />@#!$#WE$@$ and !!!$@W#<br />

  11. 11. Multi-Thread Communication<br />On a video conference call with colleagues around the country - and a company he’s trying to land a deal with - Dad carries on a side text chat with that appears on-screen and only on the screens or phones of <br />colleagues<br />jkaster: <br />Definitely<br />
  12. 12. Digital Memory Booster<br />In the hall Dad uses his “Whoozit” wearable facial recognition gadget to almost instantly read his boss John’s face and send back vital info including the name and birthday of his wife. “happy birthday to judy,” he says, just as they pass.<br />
  13. 13. RealtimeCustomer Pulse<br />Back at his desk Dad checks in on the “pulse feed” that sends a live stream of what people are saying on the social networks about his division’s latest product release. The Sentiment summary indicates 84% positive except for one region of the country where marketing has yet to begin.<br />
  14. 14. Tapping into Wireless Public Cameras<br />Dad calls mom who is at the mall and wants to see what she’s bought so mom moves to the nearest public wireless camera and syncs her VoIP connection with the overhead cam giving dad a large, full view<br />
  15. 15. Mail Call!<br />Johnny awakes to the sound of his WiMAX clock reading the subject lines of his mail and latest updates from his social networks. At a simple voice command Johnny can prompt the device to record a voice response or speech-to-text retort. <br />“class cancelled today…”<br />“Update available…”<br />“Where were you last…”<br />
  16. 16. Friend Streams<br />In school he uses his “Whoozit” device to see the most recent Facebook updates from people he passes in the hall, and responds using the speech-to-text interface in “Whoozit”<br />
  17. 17. Realtime Augmented Reality<br />At lunch Johnny plays an “augmented reality” game with friends by holding up his phone at the cafeteria and takes aim at virtual creatures appearing to walk among he and his pals<br />
  18. 18. Personal Concerts<br />While listening to the latest single from his favorite band while walking home he broadcasts a link simultaneously to friends who are on IM, other phones or computers and they can listen in synchronously, creating a virtual micro-concert<br />
  19. 19. Live-Matching<br />Johnny gets a continuous data stream from passersby who sharing his entertainment preferences. On the bus his phone sends an ice-breaker message looking for XGames fans, finds one and the two make a plan to meet up later online to play virtualX.<br />
  20. 20. Homework Help<br />That night Johnny does a realtime search for a study group by simply typing in a phrase from the chapter he’s reading from Philosophy class and gets matched with others seeking the same. They join a video chat.<br />Ability will never catch up with the demand for it<br />
  21. 21. Mom the Manager<br />Mom uses the kitchen PC to check her personalized “uber updates” that display everything published online, meeting her <br />interests, while she slept<br />She then eyes the energy <br />manager to see if there was a lift in generated energy via their rooftop mini windmill and transmits the data to the regional grid manager.<br />Johnny was out a little late the night before so she connects to the car’s ECU and sees where his travels took him<br />
  22. 22. “Just in Time” Bargain Alerts<br />Shopping at the mall for Dad she pays with her phone using “PhoneSwipe” and the clerk is alerted by the application that the sweater is a bit cheaper down the mall a way so they match the price to save the sale.<br />This sweater is available for $3.45RM less at the J.Crew store at Fair Weather Mall. Click for directions<br />
  23. 23. Interactive Wireless Billboards<br />Exiting the mall she confronts an interactive billboard, or a<br />“Saleboard,” and asks the on-screen virtual assistant about a pair of shoes in a magazine she has. The Saleboard captures the image, finds shoes just like them and offer to have them delivered home. Mom holds up her phone to pay and confirm.<br />
  24. 24. Just-in-Time Shopping<br />Mom remembers she wanted to pick up flowers but isn’t sure where to get them quickly as she needs to head to the office. She broadcasts a text request from her phone using “MerchantConnect” and within minutes several offers to sell the daisies arrive; she chooses the one closest and with the best price.<br />
  25. 25. Indirect Messaging<br />She needs to get a message to her boss but doesn’t to get into a conversation right now so the calls in a message direct to his voicemail inbox, skipping the ring on the boss’s end<br />Voicemail <br />Server<br />
  26. 26. Life-Sync<br />Walking into the office mom notices a hummingbird and manages to snap a picture. With a click she then broadcasts the photo to her social networks, her home wireless picture frame and to her printer.<br />
