Here is a link to the YouTube clip of a presentation from last week’s event where the public was first introduced to Wave.
Those who know me…know I am a fan. Yeah…I’m concerned they know too much about too many. I don’t want my medical records tied into my telephone calls. But I am fairly certain this is where we are headed…it’ll be a lot like the computer on The Enterprise. (Not the Enterprise staffed by the United States Navy…the Enterprise staffed by Star Fleet Academy.)
This is an actual demonstration and technical presentation, it runs over an hour. I’ve provided some timestamps below to portions I thought some of you may be interested in. If you are feeling geeklike I highly recommend the entire presentation.
Wave is going to be phenomenal. You will be able to IM, blog, chat, email, twitter, phone text, with multiple people in real time…at the same time.
One feature gave me goosebumps. You will be amazed. Towards the end at about 1:12:30 is a real time instant message translation from french to english that will amaze you.
I’m fairly certain it will translate Vulcan to Klingon.
The wave makes me wet. Be still my heart.
explanation of the concept
demo of interactive IM/email with photo drag and drop
“bloggy” some of you will love this.
I’m too fond of automatic spell check correction…but I understand how cool it is
is a demo of a who-is-up-for-a-movie/outing conversation demo which I could totally envision Rhiannon and her posse using just about everyday.
From the link you can also signup to be notified of when Wave goes live. I can’t wait.
