Back in 2012, augmented reality wasn’t a thing; two graphic design students decided to create a short film that will showcase the future – where augmented reality contact lenses have replaced smartphones. That short film is called ‘Sight’ and it has impacted the AR industry deeply. Sight has drawn over 5 million views, depicting a vivid and – some would say – a terrifying glimpse into our future. Later this year – Sight’s original creators are going to release a feature length version: Sight:Extended.

This talk will revolve around the arduous journey of creating their very own feature film, and about the process of visually crafting a futuristic world. What does a world ruled by augmented reality contact lenses look like? How does it affect our lives, relationships, and our very humanity?


Daniel and Eran will walk though what it takes to green light your own sci-fi film, and visualize the future of augmented reality.
