No Substitute for Human Contact & your viability experiment

This is one of the reasons that I am certain Microvision will be successful. It is only a little bit convoluted: 

We love to take pictures and videos with their phones.
We take those pictures and videos so we can share our experiences.

Try this: Take your best picture. Next time you're with a group of people, show that picture to the people right next to you. When you get a positive reaction -- other people will want to see it. Then you'll end up passing your phone around the table, and the reaction from others will be diminished.

If you have a PicoP projector, don't show it first to the person next to you -- put it on the wall. Now you're sharing with everyone at the same time. A MUCH better experience for everyone. 

That's human contact.

The same goes for sharing media -- much nicer to watch an episode of your favorite sit-com with someone else on a big screen than by yourself on a small screen.

The moto-mod and DLP -- a better, but less of an experience, because you have to fiddle with that focus wheel.

We're waiting, sure. I can wait, and buy more down here.

9to5 mac  -- much more at the source.

In the interview, Cook explains that there’s “no substitute for human contact,” again hinting that the Apple CEO favors augmented reality over virtual reality. These comments aren’t all that surprising considering Apple’s history of acquisitions in the field, as well as comments Cook has made before.
“There’s no substitute for human contact,” Cook told BuzzFeed News. “And so you want the technology to encourage that.”
