Recently you guys have had several discussions about AR devices, and you mentioned AR contact lenses. I was the CIO for an AR company for almost 6 years, so I’ve been involved in lots of discussions about current and future AR tech. People frequently talk about contact lenses as being a great option once the tech can be miniaturized sufficiently. One thing to keep in mind is that people spend up to $20,000 to have a surgery so that they do not have to wear contact lenses anymore, and even more people simply prefer to wear glasses. I wore contacts until I was about 25 years old, and couldn’t wait to get my Lasik surgery. Contacts are uncomfortable, expensive, and require a great deal of maintenance. In order for contacts to become a viable AR platform, they will have to significantly improve their comfort and care requirements in addition to miniaturizing the AR tech.
|sl||I have been listening to the show for a long time and I noticed that there are a lot of teachers who also listen. I would like to start a professional learning network for teachers who listen to DTNS.|
I am currently a technology teacher for a small K-6 parochial school in Massachusetts. I am always looking for other teachers to collaborate on projects and kick around ideas.
Email me if you’d like to talk tech in schools. Who knows, maybe we can put together a student segment for DTNS labs! - mdarlingsensei
