AR OS

Does this seem so far away?

Stephen Wolfram and Ray Kurzweil at SXSW both discussed the idea of cloud computing moving more toward cloud processing. Kurzweil shared his projection that the next step is the ability for processing power to take place completely in the clowd.

It doesn't seem so far-fetched. And when this occurs, where is the need for any particular device?

Google is already working on one device to be released toward the end of this year.

As we move more and more to the cloud, we are becoming less reliant on devices to access our resources. What if the cloud itself is the new computer? Not too far a stretch from a post I made three years ago. Too bad I was focused on Google Wave as the solution.
