Short Film Offers A Kinda Creepy View Of The Future
Google shook up the gadget world by introducing Google Glass, a "wearable computing" tool. But their view of it and how it might be used is... different from what other people think it might be. Enter two filmmakers with a short film about the creepy side of always being connected and everything being a game.
Eran May-Raz and Daniel Lazo made this short film as their graduation project. What really stands out about this short film is the careful research they put into it. This film touches on many ethical issues of wearable computing, especially when it comes to privacy and interpersonal relationships.
There are also some subtly creepy touches to the film, like the apartments and restaurants free of decoration. If you want a look into what the future might be like, "Sight" is something to see.
