Ubiquitous computing1

Ubiquitous Computing

“Ubiquitous computing offers the user a world in which everything is a medium, because everything is or contains a computing device.”


Ubiquitous computing vs virtual reality

Ubiquitous computing vs virtual reality1

Ubiquitous Computingvs.Virtual Reality

“In virtual reality, the computer interface is erased, and all we see is what the computer places before our eyes.”

Ubiquitous Computingvs.Virtual Reality

“In virtual reality, the computer interface is erased, and all we see is what the computer places before our eyes.”

“Ubiquitous computing, on the other hand, turns our whole world into a computer interface.”

So, while virtual reality refashions the immersive qualities of Hollywood film…

…ubiquitous computing appeals to us as a kind of interactive television that monitors and rearranges our physical world.”


Virtual reality vs augmented reality telepresence

Virtual Realityvs.Augmented Reality/Telepresence

  • Instead of “opaque” systems of virtual reality, these “hybrid technologies” use both computer graphics and video signals to place the user at a “real” location.


Virtual reality vs augmented reality telepresence1

Virtual Realityvs.Augmented Reality/Telepresence

Predator drones have been in the news a lot lately—this is a kind of “telepresence” technology.


Virtual reality vs augmented reality telepresence2

Virtual Realityvs.Augmented Reality/Telepresence

“Telepresence can thus define a relationship between the medium and the physical world different from that of virtual reality. While virtual reality would replace the physical world with a simulacrum, telepresence brings the physical world into the virtual environment (and vice versa).”


Virtual reality vs augmented reality telepresence3

Virtual Realityvs.Augmented Reality/Telepresence

“In many hybrid systems for augmented reality, the user may wear special glasses or a headset that is not entirely opaque to the world of light. The user can see the physical world, but the headset can also display computer graphics over part or all of the field of view. Instead of blocking out the world, the computer writes over the world. . .”


Virtual reality vs augmented reality telepresence4

Virtual Realityvs.Augmented Reality/Telepresence

“Neither augmented reality nor telepresence can make the same claim to transparency as the claim made by complete, and therefore opaque, virtual reality. Augmented reality remediates not perspective painting, but rather the windowed style of the desktop interface.”


Questions of surveillance

Questions of Surveillance

“Systems for ubiquitous computing also carry with them the possibility of total surveillance: the computers track us and each other. . .”

Project Two Test Run

OK, you’ve now read a chapter in the “Media” section of Remediation. How might your remediate this chapter in a way that might be rhetorically effective?
