Augmented/Virtual Reality and Human Senses
In a project entitled the Human Verifiable Computing project, VTT Technical Research Center of Finland used augmented and virtual reality to develop solutions that build trust between people and systems regarding information security. This connection between humans and technology is a key element of what is to come in the future, where interactions between the two are effortless and a part of daily life.
The key functionality the project showed involved human senses. For example, voice recognition was used for single-use passwords that had been distributed through augmented reality. Multi-sensory feedback can also be used; an example being a maintenance worker that is shown visual instructions on how to turn a valve, with an error message showing via image or audio alert to a user’s smart glasses if the instructions aren’t followed properly. Haptic (touch sensitive) feedback can also be implemented by making a user’s chosen mobile device vibrate.
What do you think this kind of technology could lead to down the road? Is this mixture of human sense and technology worth developing?
