I’m currently guest teaching a semester at Merz Akademie in Stuttgart. (Thx to Olia for the invitation!) „For Your Eyes Only“ is the title of the class. We are looking into the hype about wearables like Oculus Rift, Google Glass and smart watches and all these new gadgets. What makes sense, what’s retro lost, how can we combine, what can we make better etc…? Yesterday the students were testing (fake) Oculus rift VR glasses in downtown Stuttgart. What would it be like people wearing those in public space? Today 90% of passengers in public transport are looking at their phones. Why not wearing a full VR (virtual reality) helmet?? 🙂 Surprisingly many people recognized the dummies as Oculus gear. Will we walk around like this in a few years?? 😉
