Snapchat’s new AR features can identify the world around you
I used to wander. Even if I was on my way somewhere, I’d just let myself drift, taking in the world, letting things come and go, noticing or not noticing. A myriad of stuff: natural and not; human and unhuman. The panoply of different objects is what made some things jump out. A particular plant or person, a gesture or… yes an advert. Something would surprise, occasionally delight: catch my eye – an evocative phrase. Hail me. Now everything is labelled, detail added, contextualised. I don’t wander now, I make my way through data. Nothing surprises, delights. Nothing catches my eye.
