Check out this brilliant presentation by Jesse Schell, the founder of Schell Games, the former creative director of the Disney Imagineering Virtual Reality Studio, and a faculty member of the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University:
During this talk, Schell wowed the audience with his predictions about how technology will be integrated into our everyday decisions and behavior in the future--from what cereal we eat and how we eat it to whether we drive, take public transportation or walk. Fascinating material!
Whether you're a game designer or not, this stuff is brilliant from a user experience perspective. What do you think about this? Would you welcome this kind of monitoring and involvement in your daily life or does it scream "Big Brother" to you? I for one, wholeheartedly welcome the concept--as long as I get to choose who I let into my personal life.
