This isn’t a dream, it’s not even a reality check. America’s new elected president is Trump. I’d say that’s unreal. But what isn’t- augmented reality is coming. the same way we’ve been using our phones to buy apps… We’ll be using them in the future to buy or attain objects that aren’t officially real. To use, collect, show off, and the best part is… They will stay with you forever. These aren’t tangible items, you can sell them to other people if you’d like… They’ll be objects that you can gain in game apps, or digital asset models of the original game developers for apps such as Grand Theft Auto Online – The worlds most ambitious playground. So how will this happen… Well I’d say the shift to augmented reality requires a graphical engine… A couple of things… such as an iPhone or a Microsoft surface unit and an ecosystem of OP badass developers to create the tools necessary to create this infinite world of possibilities. Augmented Reality is breaking the barriers of the dream world… so that we all can attain and create whatever our hearts desire. That is- the augmented world may not be the best for driving cars or flying through cities, but in VR- yes they are. So I imagine these technologies will collide with each other in the future if an engine was to be created with that in mind. it would be a universal AR OS engine for every developer and creator/person to be a part of and I believe the best companies for this are Apple and Rockstar Games.
I have been listening to artists Lucy Rose, The Enemy, Charlene Soraia and a few others. Music has been an evolving experience.. I grew up on rock and roll and country, and passed on to trip hop and electronic music, and i feel I have discovered every genre now… I would like to say that my favorite type of music is the type that makes me feel alright in an exotic pleasant way. I remember listening to Death Cab for Cutie’s – I will follow you into the dark, Jack Johnsons – Turn your love, Bob Marley and Nirvana feeling their emotions cross over to me – reading Kurts Biography Heavier than Heaven and coming across the Internet conspiracies of his death…. Music pieces that I love are those that express sadness or happiness, ones that get you pumped with anger and further my meaning to go forward and onto the nether of our existence.. Begging for Thread by Banks… Dangerous by Big Data. Cakes’ The Distance. My favorite music are songs that tell love stories. Listening to one song every now and then… I used to record the stereo on a tape deck to be able to hear it later… Now we have the convenience of streaming our music, downloading it through iTunes… Moving across genres is an evolutionary change… To listen to something like the Foo Fighters Everlong to something like James Blake’s Retrograde… I still have memories from 311’s Amber and I guess now that all the music has been fragmented… But the emotions are the same. Albums like Jamie XX’s Gosh and Flume’s really take a bite from our emotions in a cheap way… They are mastered diligently, so they are in deed cool to hear every month or so… They are my power albums. The ones I would say have more potency than the rest because sound that conveys feelings through frequency alteration of the mind or sounds that affect your minds ability to think are genius. After all… Sound releases endorphins in your mind to create dopamine. It’s not the same as my old music however. For me, the tracks that I find most pleasurable… are Bon Ivers Skinny Love, Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence, Michael Jackson’s I just can’t stop loving you , Charlene Soraia’s When we were five, and tracks that leave you in a trance slowly, music is like a drug. If mastered perfectly, say using bineural simulation, you can achieve a state of mind so finely tuned that you can cross lands through astral projection using the right frequencies… You can expand your mind slowly, open your mind to new experiences, but all is to be done in moderation, after all – every generation goes through instrumental shifts… The ones I enjoy today the are dark synths, a low bassline, with calming waves and light pianos and guitars carried by a sweet voice of a femme.
We are a collective conscious. On a global scale, It’s hard to centralize everyone’s ideas on the internet except on one site. Reddit. The online community stores your ideas and they are seen by the masses. When I need to know how someone feels about something, I don’t just google it. I reddit. I search Instagram, find periscopers, tumblrs, and tweets about it. I read articles about everything I am about to include in my life, or keep to complain about… My AT&T ISP, Sony’s lack of work on their products, people I choose to follow, people I am ignored by, everything I do, and you do, if you are in one of my feeds and I am browsing it, is in our mind for a few seconds- if a thought is formed… If we can even conceive one from the amount of data we consume each day we make something of it or move on. Our minds work together to buffer out ideas and churn emotions regarding certain patterns of words or pixels into agreements, with which we discern who is trustworthy or what is defined as cool or just okay. The world runs first on trust, of intellect, and idea scouring who can create a better tomorrow, or destroy it in the fastest way possible. This is why, when i see something I first define it as a subject connected to a bigger entity, that is everyone has a personality and we try to define ourselves with what we connect with… Simplicity – Apple, Cars- Forza, Future – Minimalism, not just with people around us. We have an infinite imagination to pursue what we like, or create for others to enjoy as well. I am a fan of almost everything good on earth, but I am also conservative. I don’t upgrade my phone every year. I don’t use high energy appliances, I don’t drive my car just to drive it. I don’t buy foods I won’t eat, and I don’t make things for others if it’s a temporary feeling. The world made by man is an outcome of your personality and what drives you to understand things. If you are passionate about something, it will be the best idea because you had the least experience with it from the beginning. Fields like AC units, solar panels, electric cars… The industries of the future are autonomous and equipped to be lead by quantum computer programs that dictate how a product sells, will it be in stock, should the machines create more, plant more, or less. The world is not just about consuming. It’s about using the resources to their highest potential. Not just from a buisness standpoint, but as an engineers view, an animals view, a homeless mans view. Life is full of people in so many positions that we take everything we have for granted, but without our clothes and our devices… We are just one conscious of the entire worlds population.
The man who built the world of tomorrow builds the universal language of Augmented Reality, the bending of the dream world and the real world into one where things will be different for everyone based on their personalities and you will have to accept their visions in yours. The world of tomorrow is… Having someone clothe you in their vision of excellence, morph your body into their liking, and simulate the past or future in their mind not through imagination but by use of software. Take a note of the game skyrim, left for dead, and add mods. You can now do whatever you want and your body means nothing anymore. All that will matter then is how you talk, what you like, and how much of the world gravitates towards you, like Michael Jackson did without technology, if he looked any different, he would still be Michael Jackson.
The Apple TV is a device that allows you to enjoy your digital media on the tv. It makes use of the same dual core processor found in the iPod touch 5th generation and offers a wide range of pre-installed apps from Netflix to the news. Apple has been creating a closed ecosystem for the last decade for it’s portable devices… The iPhone, iPad, and now gaining market share in the Mac ecosystem and I’ve been in it since iOS 3.1.3 on an iPod Touch 1st generation I bought from a friend. The reason why iOS has been so successful has to do with the App Store and the developers imaginations. Playing Dead Space on an iPod Touch at the time when it was launched a year later on consoles was unheard of. It was something new and exciting to be able to fit an entire miniature game console, computer, and music library in your pocket. Now with Apple TV, it’s time to bring those things back to your living room and bedrooms. It’s time to bring back the apps from the phone to our TV’s. Our games, friends, and everything about the iPhone that made us feel like kids. Full of wonder and enthusiasm. The Apple TV will not just be the center of our homes in the future, it will be the bridge between work and life. A family hub with a family calendar, a real time digital assistant, a cloud-saving gaming center, an unlimited stream of music and media from all over the world with an AppStore for all languages. The Apple TV is the computer from your pocket that has been refined for 10 years in the making. When the black wall is removed, it’ll be here.
The day that I first received a pair of Nocs I thought they had two high of a treble and too low of a bass. They didn’t feel neutral.. But as I listened more to them I started to understand why they weren’t as warm as a pair of old speakers. The music I was listening to was not that great. I have been privileged of owning a 350 W sub that was placed inside of a glass enclosure with sound coming from the top, and a small speaker that had the most warm sound of any speakers I’ve owned. The two of them together sounded like an amplified version of the Bose Sound Link Mini. By a lot. And so after the DAC/AMP unit stopped working I purchased the Nocs NS 400-002’s. A pair of 105 db and 16 ohms versus the 96 db of the NS 200’s. To this day, these headphones are the ones I always keep coming back to because I have come to an understanding that not all artists know how to mix audio. The sound engineer for Lana Del Rey does amazing work. These headphones are the in between of audiophile and consumer level grade. It is the definition of what audio should sound like in the entire frequency spectrum without being warm like an old pair of speakers or a highly powered pair of headphones with 600 ohms of clarity and an O2 amp. Trying to listen to such a range lets you hear the imperfections a lot more clearer and that doesn’t make music enjoyable. It’s like telling a child Santa Claus isn’t real. You’ve removed a filter of clarity. Where the Nocs stand is… minimally designed lightweight earbuds made of aluminum/titanium. The difference being a subtle higher clarity in the 400’s and so on for the higher models. Buying anything higher than the Nocs price range is a waste of money.
