Abstract / Description: 

In my childhood I invented a new kind of lock-in amplifier and used it as the basis for the world's first wearable augmented reality computer (http://wearcam.org/par). This allowed me to see radio waves, sound waves, and electrical signals inside the human body, all aligned perfectly with the physical space in which they were present. I built this equipment into special electric eyeglasses that automatically adjusted their convergence and focus to match their surroundings. By shearing the spacetime continuum one sees a stroboscopic vision in coordinates in which the speed of light, sound, or wave propagation is exactly zero (http://wearcam.org/kineveillance.pdf), or slowed down, making these signals visible to radio engineers, sound engineers, neurosurgeons, and the like. See the attached picture of a violin attached to the desk in my office at Meta, where we're creating the future of computing based on Human-in-the-Loop Intelligence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanistic_intelligence).
