    Hey everyone! Time to drop the keyboard for a while and get out there egg hunting and enjoying some good food offline with your loved ones (if you happen to celebrate Easter). But if your 21st century children (or yourself) would rather like to play with some digital goods, you could also take a look at the new app by Berlin start-up Toywheel: they kick off a virtual car game, bringing the physical and the digital world together once more: I like the looks of it and the cute designed elements. Racing games in AR have been done before, but I still like this concept very much (I did implement…

As with most of these concept mock-ups (yes, this is a mockup), the slickness of the video hides some serious technical challenges.  In particular, since the center-of-projection of the camera is no where near the driver’s eye, the video of the road would be very difficult to blend so seamlessly with the drivers view of the road.

    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…

    With the recent acquisitions of Oculus by Facebook, and of ODG’s wearable technology IP portfolio by Microsoft, the elephant in the room is Vuzix. Vuzix is one of the longest running players in the HMD video eyewear space. Founded in 1997 by Paul Travers, Vuzix’s story goes back even further. Paul launched his first virtual reality company, Forte Technologies, in 1992. Forte folded in 1997, and with an angel investment from John Fan, Paul purchased Forte’s assets as the foundation of his new company, then called Interactive Imaging Systems. A 2005 rebranding resulted in the name…

    Hi everybody, a new AR marketing campaign hit the streets of London. I have to admit: I’m impressed by the simple, but great idea! A fizzy drink company had the right feeling for a good tech-supported ad: the “Unbelievable Bus Shelter”. Typically people doze off at bus stops while waiting and they do have time to look around from a (more or less fixed) position – sitting in the right perspective. The concepts uses the window to the world approach to convert a bus stop billboard wall into a simple glass wall (obviously by means of camera). Now nothing crazy is going on…

    David Meyer wrote an interesting piece on GigaOM about the browsing UI Random has created for content exploration on iOS. Near the bottom, he comments In fact, I would say the new user experience lends itself to futuristic forms of interaction, particularly non-touch gestures. It gives a much more literal feeling of what the system is actually doing – creating and digging through layers of association – and it’s a much more lean-back experience than Futureful was. An evolution of this idea could be great for virtual or augmented reality. As I was reading the article, I was thinking how…
  • POI’s are Pointless

    2 Apr 2014 | 6:46 pm
    I was reminded today about something thats been bugging me for a while:  POIs, as a central data element for AR, are terrible.  (They have their place, of course, but I’m thinking about them as the “main” data type in an AR experience). POIs (or “Points of Interest”) are one of the most common idioms in geo-spatial AR, and it’s easy to see why. First, the sorry state of outdoor tracking available to phones and other mobile devices (GPS good to about 10-20 meters in practice, sloppy and low accuracy orientation sensors) makes it impossible to accurately…

    Last week I gave a couple of talks about the challenges and opportunities that arise when using web technologies to create augmented reality experiences.  (This was the same talk I mentioned in a previous post.)  As I was preparing the talks, I found myself creating a slide imploring the audience to stop focusing on technology features (i.e., incrementally better tracking, getting-better-but-still-not-usable see-through head-worn displays) and start considering the big picture of what it will take for AR to move from being a niche technology to more widely used.  Here’s the slide,…

    The question of whether software should be patentable or not is hotly debated in the computer industry.  Another case is now before the supreme court, Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank, where the plaintiff argues that because their patent uses a computer, it amounts to an invention that is patentable. According to this quite nice article in the Washington Post, this is a big step, as previous rulings by the high court that upheld software patents said that they must have some tangible interaction with the world, not just be algorithms run on computers.  The article concludes: The arguments about…

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.

    As a Kickstarter backer in Oculus, I would like to chime in briefly on the current brouhaha swirling around the Facebook acquisition — I am not a gamer. In fact, I have no games installed on my machine at all, and I do not own a console system of any brand. I also do not begrudge the Oculus team for their acquisition, nor feel robbed. As a Kickstarter backer, I am content to merely own the bragging rights that I bought Oculus before Mark Zuckerburg. I backed Oculus hoping to see it used for Virtual Reality conferencing (and socializing, a la 3D immersive Google Hangout), to use as a 3D…

The proliferation of smart devices throughout the enterprise gives business leaders a hyper-accessible method to communicate with their audiences. The lack of top level understanding, in terms of the true power of mobile, is the primary reason many commercial companies haven’t yet invested appropriately in this direction.
