What is reality? Is it an individual’s perception? Without any technology, today, people perceive things differently; some are blind, some are colorblind, some are deaf, and some have psychotic delusions or hallucinations. Even discounting those extreme examples, if you have ten eyewitnesses observe the same event, you could get ten different accounts of what happened. Is there some objective truth to reality? What if you could personalize and tailor it to your needs in the moment.
Extended reality (XR) is a term that encompasses Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR). Converged reality represents a future where a wearable device, implant, or more likely a combination of both allows you to choose your reality based on your situation. In a foreign country and can’t read the signs, let your glasses show you translations to your native language without slowing you down. Doing a tour of a historic site, allow your glasses to present you with additional background information based on your location and where you are looking. Chilling at home for the night, slip into virtual reality and play a game or watch porn. The possible uses are infinite.
In this future, reality will be a choice, and you can choose how you experience the world.
