Smart phones have allowed for the gamification of many things: daily tasks, health, financial planning. Can we imagine a world where your entire life is a huge game? Developments in augmented reality will take gamification of life to a whole new level. It will completely revolutionise the way we live, work, play. What sort of a future will that be?
This video gives us a glimpse of what could be possible.
It seems like such a future will see us cede our human agency to the “smart” devices that we have chosen to use. Our every action will be based upon what some app tell us. In such a future, everything will be “smart”. Everything except us humans.
Are you excited by such a possible future? Or does it scare the hell out of you?
