Today you'll learn about a stepping stone towards the next generation of devices called S.C.G.
It stands for Spatial Computing Glasses.
These next-generation glasses will look just like the ones I’m wearing below…
But the technology will be far more powerful.
Imagine you are sitting in a café enjoying your morning latte. You put on a pair of these glasses.
And with a simple voice command, you’re able to read all your emails, check the most recent stock prices, and scroll through the pages of The Wall Street Journal.
All the information will appear as though it were floating just a few feet in front of your face.
I’m sure you’ve seen this in movies like Terminator and Iron Man. The hero pops on a pair of goggles, looks at an object, and a string of data pops up in view.
Very soon, this will no longer be just science fiction.
It will be part of our day-to-day lives.
As the CEO of Apple says it will be “as commonplace as eating three meals a day.”
Once this technology becomes widespread, why would you need a smartphone?
With these glasses, you’ll be able to do everything you can do on a phone – text, call, check emails, get directions, and browse the web…
All by using voice commands, hand gestures, and even eye movements.
The days of hunching over, squinting at a tiny screen, hammering at tiny icons are coming to an end.
As Silicon valley insider Robert Scoble says:
Imagine that you’re looking at a plain wall and with a simple voice command, you pull up a virtual TV that will be projected onto the wall…
You’ll be able to watch your favorite Netflix show right on that virtual TV.
Or imagine you’re watching a football game at the stadium, and the stats and player information are projected onto your lenses.
Do you get lost walking around a new city?
No problem. You’ll be able to see arrows and directions projected along the path that will lead you to your destination.
So you won’t even have to switch between looking at the map on your phone and the real world.
The possibilities are endless.
For the first time ever, we’ll be able to merge our physical and digital worlds
That’s why this is so revolutionary…
And that’s why experts are projecting SCG technology will grow more than 4,500% in the coming years, enough to turn $5,000 into almost a quarter-million dollars.
And it’s why futurist and Microsoft engineer Alex Kipman said:
Look, if this still all sounds like science fiction to you, I get it.
I really do.
But think about this…
If I had told you just a few years ago, we’d all be carrying a small computer in our pockets that gave us the ability to instantly get the answer to any question you asked… and watch any movie or tv show you ever wanted, whenever you wanted… you’d have called me crazy.
But today you can do that from any smartphone.
A few years ago, if I had told you you’d be able to press a button and a chauffeur would magically show up to pick you up in a matter of minutes, you’d have put me on a straight jacket.
But that's Uber.
And if I had told you a few years ago that cars would be driving themselves, you’d have called me crazy too.
But you’re watching with your own eyes a Tesla driving me around Florida… on a very busy road.
Look, these glasses aren’t just theoretical.
In fact, I’ve been following this spatial computing glasses trend since 2013, when Google released prototypes for something called Google Glass.
But it never caught on…
You see, as a former tech executive…
I can tell you from experience that for a new piece of tech to sell more than a billion units, it needs not only to be affordable…
But it also needs to be easy to use and visually appealing to users.
For these devices, that means they have to look like a normal pair of glasses.
Google Glass didn’t have that. It looked bizarre because it had a bulky plastic block over one of the lenses to display the information.
Over the years, I’ve tested other prototypes from other companies, like this one from a company called Magic Leap.
I tried out this one at an AT&T store in Manhattan.
Nobody would wear this in public, right?
That’s why this particular glass never went mainstream.
I’ve tested all these early versions and none of them succeeded because they were clunky and the technology wasn’t fully developed yet.
But now the technology has advanced by leaps and bounds since Google first tried to make it happen in 2013.
We have cheaper and more powerful chips and 5G, which is up to 10 times faster than the standard internet.
Simply put, the stars are aligned for the 4th computing revolution…
As Bloomberg says:
Soon spatial computing glasses will be everywhere…
That’s why tech executive Aaron Gordon said:
Meron Gribetz, a computer scientist featured by Forbes as one of the most influential people in technology today, agrees with me. He said:
Remember, we have over a trillion dollars at stake here…
And now we’re just days away from a major announcement that could send my #1 stock for this trend skyrocketing.
This could be a watershed moment just like when Apple introduced the very first iPhone.
