Okay, you might have a Blackberry Storm or an iPhone and figure you are on either side of the “best phone ever” battle. The truth is, it seems that our passion and zeal for whichever side you’re on (or unnervingly neutral, read: Mikhail Budhai) is a moot point. Why? IBM has just brought out their new Seer technology.
Before we get into the actual product, can I just say the name is poor? Seer, I understand is like the person who see’s plus the “er”, for the, y’know, SEE ER. It just looks like Seer, pronounced sear, it’s just poor, they should’ve thought of something better, but I digress.
The question is, why is this so cool? The phone uses your camera to actually manipulate the reality you see. It is really awesome, and frankly, since this technology seems to be paired with Palm (since IBM teamed up with them) it might make Steve Jobs’ apple cronies and, well, whoever Blackberry’s spiritual guru, CEO, and vegatarian chef/motivator is to work that much harder on making cool stuff.
