    Hi everybody, I wanted to share this for a while now, finally I get around to do so! The below video is a concept video for next gen mobile devices using AR/VR to present the world to us and create new experiences (okay, enough marketing talk). But the video is very well made and comes not from a nobody. It’s presented by MV4D. These guys are part of Google’s project tango and know a thing or two about their field. So, here we go with the cool, motivating clip. It sure works: The video shows nicely different possible use cases, ranging from a depth keying (to create a sweet video…

    Hi everybody, I’m back from my vacation and it’s time to kick off with some summer updates! Guess I missed the biggest world cup party in Munich ever (congratz to the German team!), but that’s okay. I could watch the game in France with some Dutch beer (d’oh). :-) Quite some news happening to blog about, also steering towards big upcoming events (ISMAR 2014 in Munich, yeah!)… but for today I’d like to stick to a small update on a neat kickstarter pledge I’ve found, entitled “Modern Polaxis – A Modern Augmented Reality Comic”.

    I’ve found a pretty cute video by Hombre_McSteez, titled Aug(De)Mented Reality, that I wanted to share, although I have to be careful not to post too many non-high-technical “fake” AR in the future. But with so many extra points in cuteness and effort, it’s worth a look and might inspire you to create some cell stop motion animation AR app toolkit! Enjoy the odd creature infested cartoon universe!

    Augmented reality glasses are on their way; whether they quite live up to this concept video on the other hand remains to be to seen. Regardless, if there is one thing we all love, it’s a concept video of an augmented reality driven future. I especially love the cheating at pool but hope the message isn’t you’ll need to be able to afford a Ferrari before AR becomes affordable.

    Over the weekend a buddy of mine was telling me how Amazon are going to be delivering packages via pilotless quad copters from early next year. The first time I heard about Amazon’s plans for 30 minute deliveries by quad copter was around April last year whereupon I immediately dismissed Amazon Prime Air as an April fool’s joke. But it seems the joke is refusing to die. While the fact or fiction debate still rages, we might as well mention that Dominos are also looking at drones as the perfect pizza delivery system and according to at least one quote, AR drone deliveries are going to…

    Sony have released an augmented reality Spider-Man game to commemorate the theatrical release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie. The game, or experience if you prefer, has been developed using Sony’s own SmartAR technology and allows players to point their Android device at the AR Marker and take part in a mission as Spider-Man. Before you get too excited, the game is aimed at getting consumers to visit a Sony branded store. So while you can install the application from the Android Play Store, you’ll need to visit a Samsung store for the marker. Crafty stuff. The campaign has a limited…

A recent Techcrunch article entitled, Software Entrepreneurs Must Go Mobile-First or Die, argued that due to growing mobile usage, it’s imperative that startups focus on addressing the mobile segment first. Despite the sensationalistic headline, mobile usage is growing but at different levels across various use cases (i.e. social networking vs. shopping). In fact, for the retail segment, there is an increasing amount of data that shows that not only does PC usage still have the highest…

This 35-year-old facility noticed a significant drop in attendance over the last couple years, and the biggest reason for this, according to the Aquarium, was the volume of distractions that made it difficult to just stumble upon the facility and spend a day there. To solve this problem, an augmented reality (AR) app was built to help would-be Aquarium visitors locate the facility by…
