    Or am I? Was metaio bought by Apple? The last weeks were awefully quiet around metaio. Their insideAR conference in the states got cancelled, their complete website went down (leaving some landing pages), metaio’s developer area states to terminate product support this year, twitter offline. No comments were given anywhere to the developer community. Everybody left completely startled and confused – and afraid. Speculations arose that google might have bought metaio… A fitting timing with Google I/O conference starting yesterday – but no word about metaio-esk…

    Ben Franklin is one of the most well known figures of American, or even global, history.  Most know him as one of the Founding Fathers, or that he “discovered” electricity with a kite, key, and string.  You might even know that he was a prolific inventor.  But most don’t know much beyond those few facts. While Ben Franklin is a lot of things, he’s also one of the characters in my new historical fantasy series The Dashkova Memoirs.  While researching his life to get a feel for the man behind the myth, I learned about many aspects of his character that made me…

    Hi everybody, I’m back online and updating all my feeds now to see what I’ve missed! To brush up all memories and to meet up after a while, I’d love to announce the upcoming regulars’ table! Sorry, if you are still waiting for a response on some topic, I’ll get to it next days! :-) We will meet up on Tuesday, May, 19th, 2015, 7.30 pm, at Wassermann (See ARMUC)! Note: I needed to shift it by one week due to incredibly full bars next Tuesday (Champion’s League). Maybe metaio buddies can make it to show their latest partner’s demos for Ferrari –…

    Hi everybody, I’m still out of office and travelling, but I couldn’t resist to quickly blog the latest sneak from Magic Leap… I wish my office days could be like that… Enjoy! Well done demo with typical gesture-based controls and well integrated gameplay in the real space – even with breaking the real walls (not only using them for occlusions and blockers)… But as usual: we don’t know what’s real and live and especially how the output device actually feels and looks like (and how heavy it is today)… Nevertheless, a fun teaser for the…

    Today, I’d like to look at Night Terrors, subtitled with Augmented Reality Survival Horror. It’s a planned AR game from Novum Analytics and they are trying to kick it off with fund-raising for the home stretch. From their kickstarter page we see the description of “A photorealistic, ultra immersive gaming experience that transforms your home into a terrifying, unfamiliar hellscape.” featuring binaural spatial sound and on-the-fly scanning of your very own home to play inside (to make it more fun: you can only play at night)! A short quote: The game controls what you…

    Release day part deux!  Yes, it’s only been a week, but I didn’t want to put out the first book without having the next couple of books in the series complete, so readers wouldn’t have to wait to wade into the story. A Cauldron of Secrets, book two of The Dashkova Memoirs, is now released on Amazon.  Once again, the amazing Ravven conjured the cover right out of the books.  I can’t tell you how perfect it is, but you’ll understand once you read the book.                              …
  • 10 Reasons Why You Should Know Princess Dashkova

    History is a fickle beast.  Sometimes the most important people get lost in the annals of time.  Maybe they were on the losing side of a war, or they existed so long ago, that records no longer exist.  I find these figures are sometimes the most interesting. One such little known person of history is Yekaterina Romanovna Vorontsova-Dashkova.  Sometimes known at Princess Dashova, or Catherine the Little.  Here are ten reasons why you should get to know her: 1) She put Catherine the Great on the Russian throne, by organizing a coup against her husband Peter III (not Peter the Great).
