What Apple's new headphones are telling us about our wearable (and augmented) future:
Careful listeners to Apple's new AirPod Pros that shipped yesterday can hear some interesting things about the future. What have I heard? It improves the real world.

Milan goofs around for the camera. Because he has autism it is hard to get him to look at the camera so I asked him “open your eyes wide and look at me.” He did this instead.
New iPhone Pro Max maxes nice photos on our walks. I used to run in this park in high school. First time I have been back in decades. Just minutes from Silicon Valley’s hustle and bustle.
How will Apple decide when to launch new spatial computing devices? What do you think it will do?
In the previous three paradigms of personal computing, whether it was 1977's text-based Apple II, or 1984's graphics-based Macintosh, or 2007's touchable iPhone, there was one consistent theme: Apple was behind and was the underdog. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak told me that even back in 1976 Apple
New jobs are here but require thinking differently.
We all know lots of jobs will go away in the next decade or two. When I visited Tesla’s factory this year I noticed about 20% more robots than when I visited last year.
Learn all about how Hollywood is gearing up for virtual and augmented reality using new light field cameras...
Michael Mansouri, cofounder of Radiant Images, takes us through the difference between volumetric, 360, and Light Field cameras and systems.
His firm provides cameras to all sorts of Hollywood studios and did a lot of the work on Beyonce's latest music video.
Infinite Retina's Irena Cronin and Robert Scoble were there to work for a client and to get up to date on what's possible with immersive techniques for augmented and virtual reality.
One thing that stood out? Radiant's systems capture very high frame rates, 500 per second or more, and 5K resolution each, and that lets them do all sorts of magic to capture more of the subject.
Finally a product I could wear in a shower! :-)

I was at 25 SXSWs and for next year there's a ton of proposed panels about spatial computing (computing you, a robot, or a virtual being can move around in, like AR or VR)

Yesterday I got 16,000 views on a post over on LinkedIn and that reminded me of a conversation I had last year here with Alan Smithson. He said, basically, I was an idiot for ignoring LinkedIn.
So I paid attention and started spending time there.
He has dominated my feed since I started paying attention to LinkedIn again last year. I preferred Facebook or Twitter, especially Facebook, where I was like Alan: had a huge audience over here.
I now see he's right. He's turned his efforts there into a podcast that just started and already is getting 10,000 listens a month.
If you care about AR and VR Alan is the top voice in the industry and he built it on LinkedIn.
I see most of the industry posts mostly over on Twitter ( Irena Cronin and I have built 55 lists of about 10,000 people and companies over at https://twitter.com/InfiniteRetina/lists which are the most complete lists of the Spatial Computing, er, AR/VR, industry around so we know what we talk about here) but getting an audience and building a community, like what Alan has done here, is extremely difficult.
Part of that is due to Facebook's algorithm changes (it is trying to get back to its roots of personal photos and stories). Part of it is due to its various problems and privacy panics. Lots of people I know left Facebook and have moved over to Twitter or LinkedIn.
But people like Alan, and Gary Vaynerchuk, saw the potential before I did and capitalized on it (Gary yesterday told his audiences that they should focus more energy on LinkedIn). Just thought I'd point out that he was right and give him a kudo for building a big brand there. Join me at https://www.linkedin.com/in/scobleizer/

An exercise I'm doing to rethink the future of augmented and virtual reality. Why don't you do it too?
Since Irena Cronin and I are writing a book and doing research for our company, Infinite Retina, we have been interviewing dozens of people and talking to them about augmented and virtual reality and how they are using such in their lives. I realized I needed to look at the world differently by doin
Spatial Computing technology is changing everything, including entertainment.
It used to be that motion capture was so expensive that only big movie studios could afford to do it. No more, we learned in New York. Irena Cronin, CEO of Infinite Retina, and I are talking with p…
In this important week I had a great conversation with Sam Sethi about spatial computing (which includes VR/AR). Have you gotten an Oculus Quest yet?
Show Sam Talks Technology, Ep Sam talks with Robert Scoble about Spatial Computing including Oculus Quest, Magic Leap, Web AR and Amazon Sumerian. - 22 May 2019
Oculus Quest is that good.
Last night I was playing the Star Wars game and found myself just looking around and admiring how my virtual gloves look.
I can't really explain this and how deeply emotional it is. Which is why VR is such a magic thing and is better at getting rid of pain than opiates in many cases.
But now I see what Mark Zuckerberg is doing. He's building a Metaverse that will be so magical that we will never want to go back to 2D social ever again.
But that's a conversation for a future month or year, probably next year as Apple comes into the market next September. Until then, 15 months from now, if you want to experience the future put together $400 and get a Quest.
It is the product of the year and I can't even think of anything else that's close. And that's from a guy with a Tesla and a June Oven.
I don't know how much clearer to put it. You're an idiot if you don't buy one if you have the cash (and, yes, I know many of my friends don't have the cash). I'm not talking to you, yet, but I told my son Patrick Scoble, who is about to graduate college and enter the real world, heh, that in 15 months he's going to want a bunch of Apple stuff since I know their glasses and a new 5G iPhone is coming, along with more. The next 36 months will see a deep change in what we all think is the necessary computer. For me, now, Quest is at that stage.
The Quest makes me feel even more strongly about the paradigm shift that's coming. It will create a new kind of "haves and have nots" and the "haves" will be able to participate in all sorts of things, from new kinds of jobs to new kinds of games, that the "have nots" won't have.
I'm talking about 2022, but already I'm seeing how work is changing, check out my last two videos on YouTube.
Anyway, this is a magic device and deserves all the fantastic reviews it is getting. If you don't get your face in one for an hour you just won't have any idea about why I'm so adamant you get one.

Splitting Facebook up won't matter.
In five years we won't be using any of this stuff anyway.
Quick, tell me something that was popular on Windows 95. I don't use one thing on my mobile phone that I thought was important back then.
Mark Zuckerberg knows this. In fact, splitting up Facebook, or forcing it to divest some of the pie, might actually give him even more capital to invest in the next paradigm.
The paradigm is about to completely change. After visiting with Healthcare executives yesterday I feel even more strongly about this.

Thank you Alibaba
I'm honored that Alibaba.com is sponsoring my content efforts. Here I remind you that its March Expo is ending this week. What is March Expo? It is a month of sales of thousands of consumer electronics products. Check it out at https://bit.ly/2UswcwW
This isn't a mere #ad, though. The sponsorship of Alibaba is helping me and Irena Cronin Page to kick off a new content series on Infinite Retina, which will start in April. Over the next few weeks we will be traveling to Los Angeles and New York, and visiting shows from Tribeca Film Festival to Facebook's F8 conference thanks to Alibaba's sponsorship of our content.
Here I detail some of the things we are planning as I get around the world to meet entrepreneurs who are building the latest virtual and augmented reality systems that will bring the future of retail, entertainment, education, and much more. Irena and I are working on a book, too, which we'll share more about over the next year.
Anyway, I wanted to thank Alibaba for funding these efforts, and kicking off a new newsletter, podcast, and video series. More to come soon. In the meantime, your business is well served by checking out the thousands of products on sale at Alibaba.com's March Expo. It's like visiting a Chinese Technology Mart, like I did when I visited Shenzhen years ago.
Watch a video that Carlos Calva and I did where we explain the haptic suit that I'm wearing here from Teslasuit: https://www.facebook.com/RobertScoble/videos/10157113094724655/
Experiencing the singularity.
Sensors are touching my skin, feeding computing signals right into my nervous system and Magic Leap has control of my visual perception system. Thanks to a $15,000 Teslasuit haptic system.
This brings computing of 2030 to me today.
Will do a live video shortly to share my experience in this world.
I have dedicated my life to helping companies bring this future to everyone as part of Infinite Retina.
Thanks to Carlos Calva, who stayed with us the past week and is making a system for these. Can't say more, but we'll talk a bit in the video.
We used the DJI Osmo Pocket camera to make these images. Pretty sweet!
My mission is to help entrepreneurs in the Spatial Computing world make my kids’ lives better. That is why Irena Cronin and I started Infinite Retina at https://infiniteretina.com
Here I am wearing Magic Leap, which is the first Spatial Computing-only compan.
I made this photo with the DJI Osmo Pocket camera. Wonderful small camera.
Recently I started a podcast, and several of my friends suggested the Samson G-Track microphone. I have one on my desk now, and am proud to be a partner of Alibaba.com during its March Expo.
More than a decade ago a friend took me to tour the technology mart in Shenzhen, China. I was amazed at six floors of consumer electronics. Now you can experience even more selection at Alibaba.com’s March Expo, which is Alibaba.com’s biggest online global sourcing event. Thousands of products like this microphone, in lots of categories from home and garden, consumer electronics, to fashion and apparel at https://bit.ly/2UswcwW -- this special event is for small businesses and others who to purchase lots of products quickly.
During March Expo your credit card fee is waived, for new users only, and you can save 50% on the Air Express Shipping Fee, where you can save 50% off when you choose Alibaba.com’s standard shipping service for products being shipped from China to the U.S.
I’m proud to represent Alibaba.com, @alibaba.com_official , during its March Expo, China’s leading ecommerce brand, and you’ll see me get warm with tons of the products that are on sale now.
