    Blog Update Hi everybody, as you might notice I’m updating the design! This will happen along the way and take a bit, but I’d like to start today to clean it all up and have a fresh look in the end! I want to be all set up nicely for this year’s ISMAR! Today popping up my new logo. Hope you like it. It’s the good old Penrose triangle, with a twist to it. I think it’s a good match, since it describes an impossible reality. Maybe it is not all impossible in the end – getting augmented reality to support us! :-) news from metaio During my vacation, metaio…

    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!

Well, it is a movie in form of a satire. But I like the concept very much and I think we need more cool visionary near-life sci-fi movies and demonstrations to get everybody inspired and get the creativity flowing how our favorite tech stuff could work in everyday life. Maye we can make this another highlight like Keiichi’s Domestic Robocop among others! This one comes from Creative Control and describes itself as A NEAR…

Q: Why steampunk?A: I love that the steampunk aesthetic leaves so much room to explore, and experiment. As a history buff, it’s fun to take one of my favorite eras – the Victorian Age/industrial revolution – and play with what might have been. Rules and I don’t get along very well with each other, but literary freedom is one of my best pals. Q: What makes your…

    We always like to share Augmented Reality data we come across and this is another results-driven use of AR.  From Geek.com: “It is not particularly easy to locate the Sunshine Aquarium in Tokyo anymore. 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…
