Technology Wander, the reality of voice and motion control…

Throughout the last few years, Voice and motion control have evolved. Motion control originally brought to market by the Leap Controller allows you to make gestures that become actions either on your computer or on your tablet. Occulus uses the motion, using Haptic Feedback, to provide interaction with the Virtual Worlds created by their headsets. Haptic feedback comes from the two controllers you have for the Occulus Device. The next version of the Microsoft Hologlens product will also include motion sensitivity; the last version did as well (original Hololens) using several gestures to navigate the Augmented reality presented to you via Hololens.

Voice integration has increased as well, Siri, Alexa, Cortana, and the car manufacturers have continues to drive down the path (sorry for the pun) of voice control. What I find interesting now is that the problems I saw three years ago remain. Alexa is something to be used in the privacy of your own home. I would be nervous, and honestly am nervous when I walk by someone, and they are talking on their phone. Not, talking with the phone held to their face, but talking to earbuds. You know, you can’t see that they are talking to an earbud, so you have to consider that they are talking to themselves. The same would be true for someone wildly gesturing to their phone.

I realize I look at things differently than most people do. It comes from years of looking into the future of technology and wondering the impact. Today I am thinking about an upcoming change. I remember, now probably nearly 30 years ago, when you were no longer allowed to smoke on Airplanes. You were also no longer allowed to smoke anywhere in a restaurant in the US. There was a smoking section and a non-smoking section. In the future, I wonder if your going to be asked “good evening and welcome to Bob’s Rib Palace. The best ribs this side of Adam’s Ribs in Chicago.” Smiling, you are happy you are about to be seated. The Maitre D says, “will you be dining in the Silence section, the yelling at Alexa section or the waving your arms like a crazy person section.”

I don’t know, can I get my ribs to go?
