I took a picture with my phone of a recipe on a bag and put it into a note taking app and it asked me if I wanted to grab the text so I said “sure” and it totally did excellent OCR on a crappy bag. Then I talked to my phone and asked it to identify the music I was listening to and it did that. Then I said to my roommate I wasn’t sure if his phone would do that because he has iPhone and I don’t know them very well and he’s like “Yup, it does that too.”
I can also send and receive text messages without touching my phone and even ask my phone where it is if it’s within earshot but I can’t find it.
Not to mention having the bulk of human knowledge transmitted to my pocket on a whim.
I may not have a hoverboard but I think the future’s working out pretty nicely.
Happy 2015, everyone.
