I have spent a lot of time talking in recent months about the concept of “convergence” in which we see old and new media operating side-by-side (think CNN and Facebook for the inauguration.) I have also referenced the convergence in techology as we have seen mobile phones become more than just smartphones; we have seen them become hubs of our daily lives integrating communications (phone, email, IM, etc.), music, movies, games, cameras (still and video), etc.
Patti Maes from MIT recently shared a demo of her newest device at TED. What she showcases is not only currently possible, it is likely to be available soon in one of the next few generations of mobile devices. Enjoy the video. I watched it in amazement.
Let me know what you think.
