I’m not going to sugar coat things, there is a lot of crazy crap going on in the world right now.
Will everyone soon be able to say they live in beachfront property?
Will anyone have health insurance to cover us when we are drowning from our global warming produced beachfront property?
These are big questions for sure, but let’s not forget the elephant in the room. The question everyone is pondering and needs to be answered…
Is the HELLO BARBIE HOLOGRAM Creepy or Cool?
Barbie Dabbing…need I say more? Yes, the Hello Barbie Hologram is a hologram of Barbie that responds to your voice commands. Think Amazon Echo…with a Barbie Hologram.
Take a look at this video and then leave a comment in the video – CREEPY or COOL?
Does Hello Barbie Hologram Represent the Next Level of Convergence?
You can make the argument that the major technological advances of the last 20 years have been all about convergence of technology. First we had PCs in our home and that was something. The Internet of course changed our lives. Without it, we would have never known that cats could play piano and fit into tiny little boxes.
It was the convergence of computers, the internet and portable technology that gave us smart phones and this truly changed lives. Now we are constantly connected and have instant access to basically all the information in the world…and the ability to see photos of what all our friends had for dinner.
Amazon Echo and Google Home have taken the convergence of speech recognition, cloud knowledge and virtual assistants and given us the ability to yell out “Alexa tell me a Joke” and be instantly amused.
What if your virtual assistant appeared as a hologram in your room? This is the idea of Hello Barbie Hologram, but in truth, this might just be the start. What if Barbie could float in the air and come out of her box?
Take a look at this video on Holoportation –
Yes, that is a Dad, interacting with his kid…who is just a hologram.
I will give you a minute to pick up the pieces of your blown mind.
Barbie Hologram Might Freak You Out, But She is Just the Start
The Hello Barbie Hologram is being marketed to kids. It is a connected device, that asks your kid all types of personal info, collects things like birthdate, favorite music and other stuff that stalkers love. What could possibly go wrong?
Yes, there are all types of possibilities for Hologram Barbie to be a creepy spy device, but the concept and technology is impressive. Sure, it is technically not a hologram at all, but a reflected image that appears to dance in the air is still cool. Holograms will continue to advance. Voice activated virtual assistants will only get smarter, faster and more accurate.
It’s only a matter of time before I’m asking my Hologram of Donald Trump to give me my Fake News update for the day.
