I watched it. It was amusing... but I just couldn't see the real use for it- perhaps as you said, it's because of the lack of people using it that I know... and a reason to actually use it. You don't just need people... you need a project. And a project that isn't bound by standard corporate sensitivity issues...
I agree with you. Unless you have a purpose to use it, it's fun to play with for a while but ultimately you're left scratching your head wondering how it would benefit you right now. But I also see it another way.
When the laser was first invented, nobody knew what to use it for. It was the answer, but nobody knew the question. These days lasers are so widely used it's hard to imagine what the world would be like without them.
I think the Wave will eventually take off once people start wrapping their minds around the possibilities it enables. Not everyone can see it right now. Myself included. I'm one of those kinds of people who often has a hard time imagining new things, but once an idea is expressed to me it's like the floodgates open and ideas/possibilities start to pour in.
Give it some time. It's going to be huge. But for right now it's not even in beta yet
. It's in preview
