Microsoft Hololens: Scans your room so you can play the game

This is awesome!! YET I do hope it does not connect to the internet. And if it does, it will be important there is a safe net for anything like this.

I don’t see what could go wrong with Microsoft having a 3d layout of the inside of your entire house on their servers…they are always really good with user data protection and privacy…right!!! Android phones will have the same capability very soon as well…scary as hell…

Not just your house @mvanzyl but anything inside, they even can decisively find a book and put a fingerprint on it (virtual fingerprint of course)… how about if you have a safe at home, and it’s make and model potentially what’s inside … O.[o jiafj

What the… imagine scanning the data base to find all sets matching with xyz model safe, orrr every object in people’s houses filter out all the goodies, and target them. geez it’s scary;

Forget your cell phone trying to kill you…I sense an Internet of Things horror flick in the making!! lol!!!

Have you not seen g-force? It’s been made, and it is terrifying! http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0436339/

But, I would seriously want to make sure the data from 3D photographic scans of my home are encrypted & access can only be controlled by me.

He has a new book out called ‘The stack’ a quick preview on Google Books says this one should be a fascinating read.

SAFE can alter the path of ‘The Stack’ by becoming the stack?

Overview

What has planetary-scale computation done to our geopolitical realities? It takes different forms at different scales—from energy and mineral sourcing and subterranean cloud infrastructure to urban software and massive universal addressing systems; from interfaces drawn by the augmentation of the hand and eye to users identified by self—quantification and the arrival of legions of sensors, algorithms, and robots. Together, how do these distort and deform modern political geographies and produce new territories in their own image?

In The Stack, Benjamin Bratton proposes that these different genres of computation—smart grids, cloud platforms, mobile apps, smart cities, the Internet of Things, automation—can be seen not as so many species evolving on their own, but as forming a coherent whole: an accidental megastructure called The Stack that is both a computational apparatus and a new governing architecture. We are inside The Stack and it is inside of us.

In an account that is both theoretical and technical, drawing on political philosophy, architectural theory, and software studies, Bratton explores six layers of The Stack: Earth, Cloud, City, Address, Interface, User. Each is mapped on its own terms and understood as a component within the larger whole built from hard and soft systems intermingling—not only computational forms but also social, human, and physical forces. This model, informed by the logic of the multilayered structure of protocol “stacks,” in which network technologies operate within a modular and vertical order, offers a comprehensive image of our emerging infrastructure and a platform for its ongoing reinvention.

The Stack is an interdisciplinary design brief for a new geopolitics that works with and for planetary-scale computation. Interweaving the continental, urban, and perceptual scales, it shows how we can better build, dwell within, communicate with, and govern our worlds.

As a technology with creative potential this looks awesome. I WANT THIS! As a security threat that would leak my personal data? It’s terrifying. So what’s my conclusion? Fork that bitch to open source and open hardware stat! Get it on SAFE so we can start building private and free holographic worlds!

It’s like the whole world is turning into little kids who in the heat of the game forget to look left or right before running across the street :scream_cat: These things are so exciting, but who should be the mom and dad when it’s mom and dad who just turned into children? Rant over :joy_cat:

Possibilities are endless - they could scan the size of your private member and let the NSA blackmail you with potential public disclosure. :smiley:

Or scan and ID (based on other places where they scanned the same shape) a neighbor you are having an affair with, and blackmail you both.
Weird stuff…

Samsung TVs , beware of them … so the word on the street goes…

This is interesting https://www.respectnetwork.com/#scary

Yea the voice control, old news, but the TV goes quiet & the screen darkens a bit when the microphone is made active. So it becomes fairly obvious if the microphone is activated.

Thank You, @neo

I forsee that soon the common public has an option, to hire a service provider, to come into their home locations, and set up mining centers to connect to, lets say a safe network, lets say for instance through Sonic, instead of xfinity through Comcast… It reminds me a bit first operating systems. So clean, so crisp, devoid of social engineered interference…

Thanks
