The Not-So Distant Future

With Google’s Project Glass underway and expected to be released to the public as early as 2014, it’s fun to imagine where technology will take us. For their graduation project from Jerusalem’s Bezaleal Academy of Arts, Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo made a highly entertaining short film showcasing their predictions of what the future will hold. Once we can do everything that we do on our laptops on Google Glasses, the only logical next step would be to have them embedded into our eyes. The students highlight what augmented reality might look like, showing both the benefits and the potential vulnerabilities.

He’s taken such hits as Hook, Harry Potter and about every Disney Princess movie, and created extremely catchy tunes using sounds from the films.
