Dear Reader,

Some Weeks ago, we embarked on a journey not just between two points in time—the past and the present—but through the realms of possibility that spatial computing opens up. Hosted at the intersection of curiosity and innovation, this evening promised to peel back the layers of our digital and physical worlds, revealing a future where they converge seamlessly.

Navigating from the Known to the Unknown

The Idea Residency's launch wasn't merely an event; it was a bridge connecting the dots of human ingenuity across ages. I, Alfi Oloo, had the pleasure of navigating these waters, drawing parallels between the guilds of the medieval era—where technological leaps birthed new professions—and today's threshold of digital exploration. "As guilds harnessed new skills," I mused, "we now harness spatial computing to redefine our interaction with technology."



Paul Loots: Charting the Course

Paul Loots, whose journey from the limelight of acting to the forefront of product design embodies the spirit of reinvention, took us deeper into the essence of spatial computing. "Imagine a future," Paul began, "where technology is an extension of our physical world, not just a tool within it." His talk traced humanity's relentless pursuit of visual expression, from ancient cave paintings to today's digital canvases, and posited spatial computing as the next monumental leap in this quest.

The Heart of Spatial Computing

Defining spatial computing as the integration of technology within our 3D space, Paul highlighted the shift from static, 2D screens to interactive, holographic overlays. This transition, powered by advancements in hardware and a deepened understanding of our environment, marks a new era of interaction, connectivity, and media consumption.


A Vision for Tomorrow

Paul's demo, revealing the simplicity of bringing 3D objects into our reality, was not just a showcase of what's possible but a glimpse into a world where these technologies are within everyone's reach. "This transition," he noted, "calls for designers and developers to reimagine user experiences, crafting intuitive, immersive environments."


Engaging the Future, Ethically

The evening's discourse, enriched by questions from notable figures like Morné Venter and Alex Oloo, underscored the imperative of navigating this new frontier with ethical foresight and communal benefit in mind. How do we embrace spatial computing while safeguarding against potential monopolization and ensuring its benefits reach all corners of society?


Join Us on This Voyage

As we concluded, the atmosphere was electric with potential—the dawning of an era where technology and humanity intersect more intimately than ever. This event marks just the beginning of our collective exploration into spatial computing and its implications for our shared future.

To you, the reader, I extend an open invitation: join us in this unfolding narrative of innovation. Whether you're a creator, a thinker, or simply someone intrigued by the promise of tomorrow, there's a place for you here.

"In the chaos of innovation, we find the path to new horizons. Let's venture into this unknown together."

Warmly,

Alfi Oloo
