    Release day part deux!  Yes, it’s only been a week, but I didn’t want to put out the first book without having the next couple of books in the series complete, so readers wouldn’t have to wait to wade into the story. A Cauldron of Secrets, book two of The Dashkova Memoirs, is now released on Amazon.  Once again, the amazing Ravven conjured the cover right out of the books.  I can’t tell you how perfect it is, but you’ll understand once you read the book.                              …

    History is a fickle beast.  Sometimes the most important people get lost in the annals of time.  Maybe they were on the losing side of a war, or they existed so long ago, that records no longer exist.  I find these figures are sometimes the most interesting. One such little known person of history is Yekaterina Romanovna Vorontsova-Dashkova.  Sometimes known at Princess Dashova, or Catherine the Little.  Here are ten reasons why you should get to know her: 1) She put Catherine the Great on the Russian throne, by organizing a coup against her husband Peter III (not Peter the Great).

    ‘Artifact’ AR app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play An app and service that makes it easy to commission, create and distribute Augmented Reality experiences. In the fast paced world of Augmented and Virtual reality it is becoming harder to surprise and engage audiences. Novelty has given way to a sense of familiarity with mixed reality. In order to retain that initial wow-factor, quality and interactivity is now key. Artifact delivers both with the combination of a high quality rendering engine and a level of interactivity you may not be expecting from AR. Artifact is an…

  • Augmenting VR to not trip and fall

    Many of us are experimenting with the DK2 plus cameras and Kinect sensors (for example to think of the Tony-Stark-style holographic interaction demo at last ISMAR presented by Thammathip Piumsomboon). We are trying to have a video-see-through look onto the real world and to allow for interaction (and thus collisions) with our own hands. We are focussing on demos for augmenting the real world. Now with the Oculus CV around the corner and others joining the party everybody starts to refocus attention to ways how to handle VR well: to create great real-time demos, to interact with those and to…

    The E3 has started and (as all hoped and expected) we can see some AR news! They will probably more coming up within the mixed reality realm and today’s it’s Microsoft’s part to step up on stage to give us an update with Hololens! The incredible technology with rock-solid tracking and slim glasses, gesture interaction, interoperability, Windows 10 integration and an awesome power behind it to bring us the incredible… Minecraft? Wait, what? Exactly. But it sure is a fun demo (we have actually already seen before in the initial mock-up marketing concept videos). The new…

    Is Oculus going augmented? A good week ago, the Oculus team announced the acquisition of Surreal Vision in their blog. The good people from Surreal Vision are the creators and refiners of all sorts & variants of SLAM & DTAM. Basically the who-is-who in vision-based tracking for AR. Speculations are boiling on what might happen. Just yesterday different sources claimed to have seen the leaked consumer version 1 (CV1) of the Oculus Rift (e.g. here). But those images are early prototypes and as stated by Oculus not even close to CV1. Maybe we will see an update hit the net even today…

    Or am I? Was metaio bought by Apple? The last weeks were awefully quiet around metaio. Their insideAR conference in the states got cancelled, their complete website went down (leaving some landing pages), metaio’s developer area states to terminate product support this year, twitter offline. No comments were given anywhere to the developer community. Everybody left completely startled and confused – and afraid. Speculations arose that google might have bought metaio… A fitting timing with Google I/O conference starting yesterday – but no word about metaio-esk…

  • 10 Weird Facts about Ben Franklin

    28 May 2015 | 10:32 am
    Ben Franklin is one of the most well known figures of American, or even global, history.  Most know him as one of the Founding Fathers, or that he “discovered” electricity with a kite, key, and string.  You might even know that he was a prolific inventor.  But most don’t know much beyond those few facts. While Ben Franklin is a lot of things, he’s also one of the characters in my new historical fantasy series The Dashkova Memoirs.  While researching his life to get a feel for the man behind the myth, I learned about many aspects of his character that made me…
