Three friends confront the promise and madness of revolutionary change when Sprout Computers releases the most visionary piece of personal technology ever created.

Google Glass and "Vision Machine"

02.20.13 - Comics > Vision Machine > This entry's link

Google and “Vision Machine” agree — in the future, people will rock their interactive augmented reality eyewear while wearing big earth tone hoodies!

Today Google released a new promotional video for Google Glass, a pair of glasses that provide the viewer with an interactive overlay on the real world.

If you're interested in how Google Glass might affect your life in the next few years, read "Vision Machine" today. "Vision Machine" is a FREE graphic novel and iPad app written by Greg Pak and drawn by R.B. Silva that explores what happens when Sprout Computers releases the iEye, a pair of glasses that lets you instantly record, edit, add special effects to, and share anything you can see or imagine.

It's a brand new world of insane creative opportunities -- and tremendous privacy and surveillance challenges.

The future is here. Prepare yourself.


Happy New Year!

01.01.13 - Comics > This entry's link

Happy to be heading into 2013. Tim O'Shea asked me to talk about the future for Robot 6. Here's an excerpt:

Comic-wise, what are you most excited about for 2013?

I’m excited about the increasing numbers of creators who are using Kickstarter to fund creator-owned work. I tip my hat to friends and colleagues like Gail Simone and Jamal Igle who are plunging into dream projects this way. I can’t wait to see the work that results as others seize the opportunity.

12.16.12 - Calendar > This entry's link

Filmmaker Magazine interview with Greg Pak and Karim Ahmad about the "Vision Machine" app

12.05.12 - Comics > Vision Machine > This entry's link

ITVS's Karim Ahmad interviewed "Vision Machine" writer and director Greg Pak about the "Vision Machine" project. Here's an excerpt:

Ahmad: But what I love about the Vision Machine app is that it’s really testing the limits of what is usually considered “acceptable” functionality for a digital comic. Like the fact that you include a complete voice and music soundtrack!

Pak: Yes! That was key for me. Many digital comics have musical scores, but we might actually be the first out of the gate with a full voice soundtrack.

We also wanted to include some really substantial extras and a social media interactive element. So throughout the story, there are “IRL” buttons that you can tap to bring up videos of real world luminaries (including internet superstar Jonathan Coulton) talking about the ramifications of the story’s themes and ideas. And you can enable a Twitter stream that shows you tweets that use the #visionmachine hashtag. We’re planning to use that Twitter stream to do virtual events, like panels or Q&As, that you can follow live in the app.
