    I have to be honest.  During every round of editing and proofing, when I read the last few lines of the novel, even though I knew the words backwards and forwards, it made me tear up.  It’s hard saying goodbye to a series that was a joy to write.  I know you’ll enjoy the final book as much, and more, than I did.               Goddess of Alexandria The oldest mystery of the ancient world—one sought by kings and scholars alike—remains the secret of immortality. When Heron returns to Alexandria, she finds the High Priest of Sobek, Lysimachus,…

  • ISMAR closing notes – Tom Furness on what matters most (Keynote #3)

    10 Oct 2014 | 8:35 am
    After quite some break, I want to take the time to share a few words on Tom Furness’ great talk on the last day of ISMAR 2014. It was not the closing remarks of ISMAR (it was the keynote on Friday morning), but it was definitely my most inspiring highlight and most emotionally captivating 90 minutes in this year’s AR space! The perfect talk to end the week. It’s hard to squeeze his words worthy in a blog, but I want to share an impression. Tom Furness’ claim was “seeing anew” and while I was still wondering what he meant with that he already jumps into his…

    Hi everybody, today a short update to state the results from the Volkswagen tracking challenge and the winners of ISMAR awards! As you might now, every year VW is sponsoring a tracking competition at ISMAR to benchmark and compare different solutions by the industry or universities/research institutes. Always new and different easy and very tough scenarios are set up each time and competing parties will have to code and adjust their solutions on location in extreme programming sessions to squeeze the last percentages of quality out of their tracking algorithms. This year six teams joined the…
  • More ISMAR demos to impress Tony Stark + Video

    Today, to continue, I want to show my favorite two demos. They won for me, because they gave the best “mixing of the worlds” experience and show the potential of true AR with great interaction demonstrations. To really get the feeling of the virtual objects being there you just need a better form of manipulation (maybe even with haptic feedback). Not only some sweet rendering. So here we go! Comprehensive Workspace Calibration for Visuo-Haptic Augmented Reality The demo with this tricky name is officially focusing on the calibration process to have a more reliable setup including…

    Today I want to share my first demo impressions of ISMAR 2014 in Munich. Unfortunately I could not record or see every single demo, so there might be some great pieces missed out on. But let me mention a few demos/papers explicitly, that are also visible in the video I will upload very soon! Magic-lens Paradigm for Dual-View First demo I liked a lot, was “A Magic-lens Paradigm Designed to Solve the Dual-view Problem” by Klen Čopič Pucihar and Paul Coulton. Using AR via a smartphone/tablet it might be easy to change perspective and examine augmented objects, but…

    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.
