Brian Mullins begins this moving talk by revealing that human beings are programmed to accepting limiting beliefs. We hear things all the time such as, “you’re not smart enough,” or, “that’s not realistic,” or, “you need more experience for that.” He argues that these limiting beliefs are not real, and that they are motivated by fear. In fact, they are so deeply ingrained in us we don’t even know they are there preventing us from taking chances. He asks the question, “how do we overcome this?”
As a thought leader on the topic of augmented reality, Brian explains how it’s a human-centric concept that enables us to share ideas in a whole new way. It is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.
He shared the story of his personal struggle with his son’s Cerebral Palsy, and how augmented reality can be a driving force behind sharing information about this debilitating disease. In his opinion, augmented reality can cause the flow of information to be fluid and save more lives.
