  1. There is something about this that doesn't feel right. I'm struggling, trying to understand why the excitement doesn't carry through. Why the slow, high pitched, over-pronunciation of words? Why is she screaming? Makes it very difficult to watch. Maybe it's just me.

  2. As I said last year, "ATAP Rocks!"…. and it's still true.
    Where as the latest Spotlight Story doesn't have the grace and elegance of Duet (sorry, not my thing) the tech behind it is fantastic. That said, Mudge's security co-processor and data-store in the SDCard form factor is the 'winner' from this presentation.

  3. They will find us by the way we move or gesture, no need to plant a chip into our bodies or scan our eyes, once you used those evil spy devices, they got you forever.

  4. Nice hips, but this woman's personality is a cookie-cutter, silicon valley, vocal fatigued, cool lingo (ie, "epic shit"), question inflection-ending declarative statement, pop-culture product.  Outta here at 2:40.

  5. Screw you Regina Dugan,   ingest your own shit crap and kiss your sheep…
    No problem not playing it safe with humanity, so you can make your fooken money on others backs.

  6. I have a few things to say about this. Firstly, ATAP, you are definitely ahead of the pack. Well done. Now for the scathing criticism (not really directed at you)…

    First, yes, great technology — ARA, a little interesting but how you carrying those mods and does that make a mobile no longer built in obsolescent? Can we get CPU and GPU and NAND modules to upgrade our phones, even a screen modules? …

    Jacquard is great. That is the winner in this without doubt, because I doubt they even realise how powerful that can be. Replacing our phones, our tablets, our laptops, with fashion and regaining human conversationalism (perhaps our greatest 21st century issue), could well crack it…

    But Spotlight Stories? Hmm. What about writers, poets, interactive stories that are primarily text or music or other media (woven in with others).

    ATAP, great minds… and others exist out there doing other things but perhaps in human individuality and corporate capitalism of the West, we've forgotten how to really imagine and explore. Money is our broker to survive, not our goal. Our goal is beyond.

    Why though is there (and I know this is a little naive, but it isn't when you think of the race of tech between 1810 and 1970 peaking in 1905)… still natural death, still a CPU that runs not much faster than one did 8 years ago (cores cores cores, what about just faster RISC and, dare I complain, better programmers and teaching how to code).

    I want that ARA in my head, not in my hand. I want the clothes woven into my skin, not by my favourite tailored suits and jeans (which happens to be Saville Row, Versace and Favourbrook). I want that security as my passport crosswired throughout my body in 16 places so I can't have it stolen (more security you encapsulate in one place, easier it is to steal your identity). I want google translate on my tongue and my ear.

    I'm a writer, a game developer, a traveller and a coder. I'm not a scientist but I am also to blame for this age, as we all are, The Age of Idle Fancy.

    Let me throw some perspective on my aggressive tone.

    The personal PC came to life in the 1970s. Ours are faster but very very similar. Our mobiles, our tablets too. What about a self-configured 'computer' of nanosized dust or simply radio/laser wave screens and interface through glasses or indeed textiles; a cable of atomic bindings like carbon nanotubes that can be used in electronics, travel, space, banking and construction….

    How far have we really come since 1970? FORTY FIVE YEARS. We had 2 world wars in that time and we managed to invent atomic energy, space travel, early cybernetics, gene therapy to cure leukemia just recently and little Chinese gene modifier home kits now.

    Isn't this just a bit of tech titillation? We're so hung up about our techy stuff now we've forgetten we're human, we die, we injure, we explore, we desire, we hope and we imagine.

    ATAP, next year, can you address any of that? Or must it always be commercially viable. I love the gadgets but when I'm 80 wearing a suit that unlocks my door, calls my son or gives me a physical… I'm not going to be impressed. …

    Lastly, ATAP isn't at fault. They're doing what they love and it takes many kinds.

    The rest of us, those who can? Why aren't we eliminating senescence, still using computers when in 70s men used slide rules to explore beyond the sky, turning education into formulaic indoctrination of stupidity and ignorant arrogance rather than acceptance and cultivation of individual talents? Why this rat race conformity when we're ALREADY too comfortable.

    We don't need more economic growth. We need HUMAN growth.
