The project that I’ve decided to work on was the “Neuro Linker” idea which was inspired from the Anime, “Accel World.” I believe having something like that in real life would be incredibly helpful.
The reason why it’s called the Neuro Linker is because it connects directly with your brain. The Neuro Linker is basically a personal PC that you can bring anywhere you’d like that you wear on your neck. It tricks your brain so that you believe you’re seeing and touching several floating virtual screens that only you can see, and depending on the way you interact with your screen, actually sends those actions to the computer located on the User’s neck. In turn, the Neuro Linker has both features of Augmented and Virtual reality, making this MR, or Mixed reality.
The uses for this are practically as much as you would for a computer. You can go online and surf the web and such but there are some other uses for it. For one, if you go to class, the teacher won’t have to speak loudly for his students to hear him. Using the Neuro Linker, he could talk quietly but since the information can be shared from Neuro Linker to Neuro Linker, they would be able to hear him. The Neuro Linker could also be used for those who have bad eye sight. In turn, even if they can’t see properly unless they had glasses before, now they can easily view things using the Neuro Linker to improve one’s vision rather than wearing glasses or contacts.
There isn’t anything of this level done yet but there have been some results of Mixed Reality existing to this day. Last year I even watched a presentation which talked about many concepts that were being worked on today, one of which was Mixed Reality. Even last month had an article about canon making a mixed reality glasses stating that it’s different from that of google glasses (which is only Augmented Reality).
