“The fuzzy line between cyborg and human and how direct-to-eye technology will change the world”

As computing has progressed over the last 60 years there have been 2 unceasing trends: miniaturization, and distributed computing. The combination of them has culminated in the ability to deliver instant, contextual, and relevant information to virtually anyone, anytime. Today that is done mainly with the smartphone, but what about tomorrow? Shane will argue that direct-to-eye technology will play a prominent role in the very near future, and explore the philosophical ramifications of our increasingly human-integrated technology. In particular, at what point does a human cross over into being a cyborg? We already have many people with machine implants, so perhaps the line should be drawn when cognitive functions go digital?Surprisingly, there is increasing evidence that line has already been crossed, so that future may be much nearer than you would think.

Recon Instruments is the world leader in Heads-up Display (HUD) technology for athletes. Their multi-patent technology platform integrates a Heads-up Display with a cutting edge micro-computer. The HUDs deliver instant access to navigation, communication, and performance metrics direct-to-eye, and unobtrusively. With worldwide distribution, including being sold in Apple stores, and partnerships with some of the best eyewear brands in the world, such as Oakley, Recon continues to define and evolve the HUD category.

Transcript

  • 1. Recon Instruments Inc.World’s first HUD for action sports
  • 2. Recon Instruments Inc.Computing Evolution
  • 3. Recon Instruments Inc.Wearable is already here•  The wearable computing market will hit $1.5 billion by 2014 up from $800million in current sales. The growth is fueled by fitness and healthcarerelated devicesJupiter Research•  Wearables have enormous potential for uses in health and fitness,navigation, social networking, commerce, and media. In three years, webelieve wearables will matter to every product strategist, just as mobile andtablets matter todaySarah Rotman Epps, Forrester Research
  • 4. Recon Instruments Inc.Direct to eye is next•  Google Glass•  Kopin Golden-I•  Vuzix M100•  4iiii Sportiiiis•  Instabeat•  Telepathy One
  • 5. Recon Instruments Inc.How the (near) future may look
  • 6. Recon Instruments Inc.Why use a Heads-Up Display?
  • 7. Recon Instruments Inc.It all comes down to speed•  As computers get smaller and more connected, theirmain advantages are all about speed•  They compute faster, so bigger data sets can be handled•  They can access and cache extraneous data on the fly•  They can go where you do, so you don’t have to wait toget home or the office to see what you need to know•  With wearables, the data gets to you faster than everbefore
  • 8. Recon Instruments Inc.Consider Cycling•  Every 5 seconds a rider spends looking down costs them~ 0.2 seconds•  More importantly, having instant access to data that caninform and push you, enables you to perform optimally•  This is the same reason personal bests are usually setwhen you’ve got someone on your heels (or you are ontheirs)•  The edge may be small, but is a game changer at yourlimits
  • 9. Recon Instruments Inc.When it comes to speed, speedmatters
  • 10. Recon Instruments Inc.Where to after wearable?
  • 11. Recon Instruments Inc.•  "You can see how Moores Law is slowing down. Wevebeen waiting for that transition from 28nm to 20nm tohappen and its taking longer than Moores Law wouldhave predicted...Im saying you are seeing the beginningof the end of Moores law.”•  John Gustafson – Chief Product Architect, AMD Inc.•  This is not engineering, it is physics. I.e. This isphysically binding for silicon-based computing.Moore’s Law is not so binding
  • 12. Recon Instruments Inc.0100200300400500600700800900Silicon Semiconductor Size Over TimeSize in nmYou can see this effect in your own computers
  • 13. Recon Instruments Inc.A revolution is needed
  • 14. Recon Instruments Inc.Your brain is already all cyborg’d up•  “the current explosion of digital technology not only ischanging the way we live and communicate, but israpidly and profoundly altering our brains.”•  Gary Small – UCLA•  You “outsource” memory•  You solve problems differently, by rememberingwhere to find solutions, rather than solutionsthemselves
