Microsoft, Apple, Google, Amazon And Facebook Are All Racing To Be The First Company To Successfully Replace Our Smartphones With Smart Glasses

Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and others are in a race to bring to market augmented reality smart glasses that are the next step in big tech evolution.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Most of the biggest names in Big Tech are racing to create smart glasses that we wear everywhere and that may replace our phones.

We have consistently told you that the drive to full human microchip implantation comes in three stages, which are as follows:

  • STAGE ONE: Getting the whole world in front of a computer. This was successfully accomplished in 1994 with the twin whammy of the release of the Internet for public use, and the stratospheric rise of Windows software in personal computing systems. This stage lasted from 1994 to 2007, when Apple was the first company to market with a successful mobile device, or smartphone as they are commonly called.
  • STAGE TWO: Getting the computer on you. Now that the whole world was attached to personal computers and laptops, Stage Two is where the computer went from being in front of you to being on you. Stop anyone one the street and ask them to you show their mobile device, and you will see it is somewhere on their body. The stage began as previously stated in 2007 with the iPhone from Apple, and is currently coming to an end here now in 2019/2020. Stage Three is the third and final stage in this process.
  • STAGE THREE: Getting the computer inside you. Augmented reality smart glasses, in all their varied mutations, are the bridge to human implantable microchips and computer processors. When this stage is fully realized, wearers of the smart glasses will be able to have full 3D interactions in the air as computers screens as we know them today will cease to exist. The technology that will be developed during this stage, 2020 – 2026/28, will include implantable devices that will supplement the smart glasses. This is where Augmented Reality and human implantable will merge .

All of this is the precursor to the coming One World System under Antichrist, and his Mark of the Beast. Now you can see that when the Mark is rolled out, it will not be some new thing that boggles people’s minds, no, just the opposite. When the Mark of the Beast comes along after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, the Mark will simply be the ‘latest and greatest’ piece of technology to a world that has already been using Augmented Reality systems and gotten used to seeing things in 3D.

There’s a race to replace our iPhones with smart glasses we wear everywhere

FROM CNBC: Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Snap, Facebook Apple, Magic Leap and others are all working on some form of smart glasses or headset that will change how we view the world around us. Instead of pulling a phone out of our pockets to talk to people or interact with apps, we may do these things simply by speaking to, and looking through, a set of glasses.

There’s a race to be the first to make a set of glasses that everyone will wear, which means they have to be fashionable and sleek enough to wear all day and everywhere you go. Advocates of the technology hope that you’ll one day be able to replace every screen in your life with just one pair of smart glasses.

If glasses replace common gadgets like our phones or computer screens, it will mean big business to the company that comes out on top.

But we’re likely years away from that. Today, most AR headsets are too big, too expensive and simply too weird-looking to make sense for everyday use. That’s not keeping tech companies from trying though. Here’s where everyone stands right now.

Microsoft Advanced Augmented Reality Products

Microsoft is working on advanced augmented reality products. Its HoloLens 2 headset went on sale last week and a modified version is being tested by the Army to make soldiers more effective on the battlefield. Called IVAS, the Army’s version can overlay images like the positions of fellow soldiers and the enemy over the vision of the soldiers who wear the HoloLens headsets. And soldiers can use it for training to see how they performed during battle simulations.

It has commercial uses, too. HoloLens 2 is capable of displaying computer programs over your vision so you don’t always have to sit at a computer to do work. It can help workers in the field identify problems and make fixes without digging through manuals.

The HoloLens 2 is too big and at $3,500 too expensive for most consumers. But as technology progresses, these devices will only get smaller and more powerful.

Snap Spectacle 3 Glasses

Snap’s Spectacles 3 glasses, which go on sale this week for $380, let users snap pictures and videos of the world around them and then add augmented reality effects to those clips inside the Snapchat app.

You can’t currently see any information through the glasses themselves, but the company is reportedly working toward adding augmented reality into the frames. The Information’s report on Monday said Snap is building a “fourth-generation version of its Spectacles camera glasses, code-named Hermosa, with smart lenses capable of showing AR effects.”

Snap’s strategy has been different than those of Microsoft, Facebook and Magic Leap. It starts with glasses and plans to add a computer system later. The other companies have bulkier headsets with computers but haven’t sold glasses yet.

Google Glass

Google still sells its Google Glass product, which shows information, but not 3D augmented reality, to wearers. The original version, aimed at consumers, may have come too soon. People didn’t like that wearers of Google Glass were able to record them at any time, and Google eventually killed that model and focused on business use.

Google is still investing in the space and most recently launched a new version in May for commercial uses. Google’s Android platform on phones now supports augmented reality apps, too, which means it’s building a library of applications that could one day be used in more advanced versions of Google Glass.

Google Glass Smart Glasses

Google Maps on Android and iPhone already has features that would be much more useful on a set of glasses, too. An augmented reality feature that rolled out in May overlays information, including walking directions, on top of the real world. It can show you which way to walk, when to take a turn and even when you’ve arrived at your destination when you hold up your phone.

While Google hasn’t publicly talked about new AR glasses yet, it’s obvious the company is building a foundation where AR makes more sense on our heads instead of on a phone.

Magic Leap

Magic Leap’s first headset launched in August 2018 and, like Microsoft HoloLens 2, is a relatively bulky headset that’s capable of showing games, 3D animations, virtual video screens and more, all in a digital world around you.

Magic Leap smart glasses augmented reality

You can still see everywhere you walk, and anyone you’re talking to, but AR applications let you watch TV, work in computer programs and more, all while still seeing the normal world.

But like HoloLens 2, Magic Leap is expensive, with a starting price of $2,295. The company will need to make its product smaller and more affordable if it plans to attract a wide audience, and it will need to add more capabilities and applications. Apple’s iOS and Android already offer thousands of augmented reality apps for phones, which could easily land on headsets if and when they launch.

Apple Augmented Reality

Apple’s headset is reportedly set to launch in 2022, but the first model is the size of Facebook’s Oculus Quest virtual reality headset, according to The Information. But a smaller glasses-size version that it says is due to launch in 2023 may be more attractive to people, since that form factor will allow it to be worn all day instead of around the house.

Apple reportedly plans 2022 release for first AR headset, followed by AR glasses in 2023

Apple Augmented Reality Smart Glasses

Like Google, Apple’s iOS platform is already home to thousands of augmented reality apps. Apple probably added AR support to its iPhones and iPads in an effort to teach people more about the technology and show them how games and information will work once they’re overlaid in front of our faces. And like Google’s, this strategy helps it build a library of apps that would work on a future set of glasses.

Siri already works with wearable products like the AirPods and Apple Watch, allowing users to ask it for turn-by-turn directions, to play music and to transcribe messages all without picking up a phone. Those functions could all work on a set of smart glasses.

Facebook Oculus

Facebook’s strategy is different than almost everyone else’s. It currently sells virtual reality products that take you out of the real world and into a digital realm where you can’t see anything around you. But Facebook is also interested in augmented reality.

CNBC reported in September that Facebook has partnered with Ray-Ban parent company Luxottica to develop augmented reality glasses. It plans to launch the wearable, internally called Orion, between 2023 and 2025. They’re designed to take calls and let users stream video to other people. Hundreds of people are working on them. One area Facebook has struggled, however, is in getting them small enough for consumers to find appealing.

Facebook Oculus AR Smart Glasses

Like Apple, Facebook has an existing communications platform that could translate easily to a pair of glasses on our heads. Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp allow users to call or chat with one another, for example, and Facebook’s Portal products enable video chat across platforms.

Facebook already has developer tools for augmented reality, called Spark AR. Right now, it’s used for face tracking and effects inside video chats on Portal hardware but could theoretically be used one day on a set of smart glasses. And Facebook has a huge user base that includes 2.45 billion monthly active users who may be interested in smart glasses if it can sell them at an affordable price.

Amazon Echo Frames

Amazon hasn’t talked much about its own set of augmented reality glasses, but in September it announced a pair that show it’s interested in the space. The Echo Frames are currently just a set of regular glasses, but with a speaker and the Amazon voice assistant Alexa built in.

Amazon Echo Alexa Smart Glasses

A user can speak to Alexa anytime. It can tell you the weather, place phone calls, give you a news briefing or anything else that an Amazon Echo can do, just on your head. Amazon could improve these glasses by adding AR, but it would need to add screens that help display that information in front of you.

Amazon also has a lot of services that could easily apply to AR glasses. Prime Video could show movies and TV shows through a set of future Echo Frames if Amazon decides to build such a pair, for example. Or a user might shop through Amazon and browse through goods without ever pulling out a phone. READ MORE

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Disney+ Releases ‘The Santa Clauses’ Movie Featuring A ‘We Love You Satan’ Montage Scene That Producers Say Is ‘Just A Joke’

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The wicked World of Disney have a message for millions of kids this Christmas season, and it’s ‘We Love You Satan’. Ho-ho-ho, y’all.

Disney+ just released their new ‘holiday classic’ called ‘The Santa Clauses’, and one of the hallmark scenes from the movie is where the elves are parading before Santa and Mrs. Claus, holding up a sign meant to say ‘We Love You, Santa’, but instead says ‘We Love You, Satan’. The actress playing Mrs. Claus thinks it’s the funniest thing she’s ever seen, emoting some very authentic laughter. This mess is presented to us in joke form, but go kid your Grandma, this is no joke at all. This is a ‘christmas present’ from the company that promotes all forms of the vilest abominations from their ‘kingdom’. Welcome to the Wicked World of Disney.

“His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;” Revelation 1:14 (KJB)

Now, we know this was not a joke, but a carefully placed and demonically clever message primed to hit the heart of millions of children this holiday season. And man oh man, the boldness of it is astounding! But the front lines is the place where the bullets fly, so we are shocked but absolutely not surprised in any way at all. In recent years, the Wicked World Of Disney has promoted cannibalism, transgenderism, drag queen shows for children, and abortion-on-demand all day long. Disney is the stated enemy of the purity of your child, the least you can do is stop going to their theme parks, stop watching their crappy movies, and stop supporting the end times mayhem they commit.

Ironically, when interviewed for ‘The Santa Clauses’, star Tim Allen said that he “pushed for Christian elements” to be written into the movie. Oh really, Tim? Must have missed the part in my King James Bible where it talks about children professing love for Satan. Unless you were thinking maybe Ephesians 5:6? Don’t go to the theaters, don’t stream this into your homes, make this piece of junk bomb at the box office and send Disney that message. TO THE FIGHT!!!

The Wicked World Of Disney Presents:

This is what Hollywood thinks of Christians, of the Bible and of Jesus Christ. Santa Claus is bad enough, but now a direct message saying ‘we love you Satan’ in a kid’s Christmas movie?? No words.

Just In Time For Saturnalia, Umm, I Mean Christmas, It’s The Holy Spirit Talking Board For You To Have A ‘Guaranteed Demon-Free’ Séance With Jesus

The Holy Spirit Board with its ‘Magic Cross planchette with metallic mirrored finish’ is straight from the pit of Hell.

I really wish this article today on the Holy Spirit Board was something from the Babylon Bee, but sadly, it is not. It’s hard to say what’s more demonic, the original Ouija board with its satanic gothic styling cues, or this one that presents Jesus in a mocking way, and drags the Holy Spirit into just for fun. The worst part is the number of Laodicean Christian churches that have already ordered it and are planning to have Fall Festival family fun nights. On sale at Amazon right now.

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJB)

This straight from the boardroom of Hell board game tells you how you can “communicate directly with Jesus Christ!” and “get all the answers straight from the man himself!”. Just for fun it comes complete with something called a ‘Magic Cross planchette’ shaped, of course, not like the biblical cross that the Romans crucified Jesus on, but styled after the Babylonian cross dating back to the rule of everyone’s favorite type of Antichrist, King Nebuchadnezzar.

This is wickedness, this is evil, and this is something that no Christian, no matter how backslidden, should have anything to do with. There is a website called ChurchLeaders.com, and they say that they are ‘dedicated to resourcing, informing, and connecting a community of church leaders for greater Kingdom impact worldwide.’ Well, they wrote a whole article on the Holy Spirit Board, including links to videos from the game manufacturer, and never once spoke a single word against it. Why not? This is where we are folks, on Day 976 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve.

Senate Republicans Side With Democrats To Help Pass The ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ That Forces States To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages

Published

on

senate-republicans-help-democrats-to-pass-same-sex-gay-respect-for-marriage-act
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Twelve Senate Republicans voted with Democrats on Wednesday for the far-left ‘Respect for Marriage Act,’ which is reportedly designed to provide federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages.

It’s one thing to get hyped up on the marketing of political parties, like the ‘Red Wave’ that wasn’t, and it’s another thing completely to wake up the next morning and face the grim reality that nothing has changed. Here we are after the Midterms, and what do we see? Senate Republicans siding with Democrats to pass the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ that protects same-sex marriage. Yay!!! Make America Great Again!! Umm, no. America’s fate has been signed, sealed and about to be delivered. That ‘red wave’ you were expecting is actually going to be fire and blood coming down from God out of Heaven in judgement on this lost nation we live in.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28,29 (KJB)

Just imagine for a moment that Donald Trump, who has just declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race, wins in a landslide. Does that make America great again? No, it does not and it will not. If the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ came across President Trump’s desk, he would absolutely sign it. How do I know that? Because in 2016 he courted the LGBTQIA+ vote like any other politician. An America that was ‘great again’ would be against those things because God is against those things. Sorry to burst your bubble, kiddies, but it’s time someone told you the truth.

12 Senate Republicans Vote With Democrats for Far-Left ‘Respect for Marriage Act’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Lawmakers voted for the measure 62-37 after a bipartisan group of senators made changes to the bill to include a clause about religious liberty. With the amendment agreed upon, the bill will go back to the House before going to President Joe Biden. The White House has expressed support for the measure.

The 12 Republicans who voted for the bill include Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Richard Burr (R-NC), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Todd Young (R-IN).

The Respect for Marriage Act (RFMA) was introduced following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, due to Democrats’ unfounded concerns that the Supreme Court could use the Dobbs decision to overrule the Court’s Obergefell gay marriage decisionThe measure passed the House in July with the help of 47 Republicans, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) agreed to postpone a vote until after the midterms so that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle could attempt to address religious liberty concerns.

RFMA would repeal the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act and would require the federal government to recognize any marriage that was “valid in the place where entered into.” The bill would also require every state to recognize every same-sex marriage that “is valid in the State where the marriage was entered into.”

As a report from Slate noted, the bill “does not go as far as Obergefell. In that decision, the Supreme Court directed every state to license same-sex marriages—that is, to issue a marriage certificate to same-sex couples. The RFMA does not codify this component of Obergefell.” According to the report:

So the RFMA does not force Texas to issue a marriage certificate to a same-sex couple. But it does force Texas to recognize a marriage certificate issued to a same-sex couple by New Mexico. In a post-Obergefell world, a same-sex couple in Texas could drive to New Mexico, obtain a certificate, and force Texas to respect their marriage like any other.

The bill does have a “private right of action” clause, which would allow “any person who is harmed by a violation of subsection (b)…[to] bring a civil action in the appropriate district court of the United States against the person who violated such a subsection for declaratory and injunctive relief.” The law would also allow an attorney general to bring civil action against any person who violates the law.  READ MORE
