Woz talks Silicon Valley Comic Con, his favorite superhero and the future
So we have a Comic Con in San Diego.
What makes the one in Silicon Valley different, why do we need one here?
I don't like to do things the same as everyone else.
Comic Cons are all over in different cities around the country, and I don't wanna do the same thing.
So we'll have the popular culture side of Comic Con, but we'll mix in a lot of the science and technology that's local here in Silicon Valley.
Last year we didn't Expect so much interest.
And we had so many people attend that we had lines, we had blockages, and we ran out of food, and all this.
So now we've got two more buildings.
We're gonna have a space village with NASA making a lot of great presentations.
And they're gonna have panels as well, talking about quantum physics and all.
We're gonna have virtual reality.
Oculus and Sony are gonna show off their hardware for that.
And we're gonna have a science fair as part of this in the park.
And we're just gonna make it a very neat, for the people that are interested in technology, science, engineering, that mess.
It's all gonna be there.
Along with that's the cover concept which is very popular.
Wow, look at this I can buy some artifacts, I can buy some stuff to take with me.
So the theme of this year's expo is the future of humanity, where will it be in 2075?
So where do you think we're actually gonna be at that time?
The future's gonna be filled with who knows what.
Maybe every car is electric, maybe it is all flying like the Jetsons.
We're probably gonna have a lot of virtual reality and augmented reality that just keys us into a lot of artifacts of the world and makes us more powerful as people.
This is just the nature, this is how technology always goes, trying to make the people into the superheroes that are in the comics.
I get asked this a lot Do you have a favorite superhero?
And I'm very afraid to answer.
DC versus Marvel.
Why would you pick a favorite when every single one of those [UNKNOWN] wow, this is a great episode what they did.
And usually for some good at the end.
So I'll just go back and say maybe Superman, early, early.
So you wouldn't pick invisibility over flying?
Or you don't have a preference When it comes to that?
I know which superpower is the best.
Stan Lee said it on our stage last year, luck.
If they shoot a bullet at you, and it misses cuz of luck?
If you were playing blackjack, it'd be good if you could see through the cards.
But if you're lucky, you don't even have to.
