    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…

    The TU/ecomotive students of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have designed the world’s first modular car, and with the help of Metaio Augmented Reality technology, they will showcase it at AutoRAI, an Amsterdam International Motor Show.The students observed that because the tastes and wants of an individual is constantly changing, this is sometimes reflected in his or her desire for a new car, even after only a few years of ownership. “This leads to an enormous waste production,” students say.  They wondered, what if they no longer had to buy new cars, but could change…

    I have a confession.  I used to daydream about the apocalypse when I was growing up.  Nothing passed the time in class like deciding what my weapon of choice would be against a horde of slavering zombies.  Or figuring out where I would make my bunker in the event of a nuclear holocaust. My friends and I made armor out of peg board, weapons out of liberated shop wood, tennis balls, and chain, and used motorcycle helmets for head gear.  We recreated the Piers Anthony Battle Circle series which included bludgeoning each other with said weaponry.  We even burned a ring into the yard for our…

    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)!

    Hey everybody! Happy new year 2015! May all your plans and dreams come true and all AR endeavours be fruitful (for everybody to see) :-). Since I didn’t have projection mappings for a while, I thought I’d share the new year countdown from Grand Park in L.A.! While inbetween there are some 2D fillers, it’s mostly pretty well done and suited for the building. I especially like the splashing water! Enjoy! And if you did not have enough time to check out all cool VR & AR devices from CES 2015, you might want to take a 78 second ride below: Let’s bring it on, 2015!
