What happens when the world as we know it combines with virtual reality, streams of content, personal data, sensors, cameras and implantable or wearable devices? People will experience the world within a wired habitat, where computers mediate our perceptions of reality, objects talk to each other and experiences are hyper-customized based on carefully assembled, personal datasets. On the web of the future, Main Street won?t look the same to everyone. Mixed reality will revolutionize the world as we know it, creating an augmented dimension within which people live, work, communicate, collaborate, build, buy and sell. Without question, this pervasive environment will radically alter how we view people, environments, objects and illusion. However, with the unprecedented possibilities come inherent risks and threats. As mixed reality converges with life as we know it, how can it be structured to best serve humanity without jeopardizing all we hold dear? IEEE explored the future of mediated reality at SXSW 2015 in this engaging panel session with BC "Heavy" Biermann (The Heavy Projects), Jay Iorio (IEEE Standards Association) and Todd Richmond (USC Institute for Creative Technology).
