Technology Marketplace - "Beam me to my meeting!" - 1 views

  •  
    European scientists have integrated robotics, video, and various sensor and display technologies to transport someone into a geographically distant meeting room under the auspices of the Beaming through augmented media for natural networked gatherings (Beaming) project. The European Union-funded effort utilizes immersive virtual reality technologies in which a robotic avatar functions as the meeting participant's eyes, ears, and mouth. The participant wears a head-mounted display and is connected to sensors, enabling them to receive the avatar's video and audio feeds in three dimensions. The two-way connection also enables the participant's movements and responses to be mimicked by the robot.

    This seems to be a little forced as an application of AR, but I still found it interesting as it may be a crude version of an AR application we may see in the future.

See Rome as it is and as it was | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog - 1 views

  •  
    Relating to the discussion last class about potential directions AR and mobile apps may go -- this iPhone app allows users to experience a location (in this case, Rome) as it existed in the past. 

    Provides images and historical info for all users, but if the user is actually at the Coliseum, it uses the iPhone camera + gps and presents actual 3D renditions of the past of whatever is in the user's viewfinder

Steve Jobs, Apple, and the Failure of Education Technology | Hack Education - 2 views

  •  
    Let's not forget the hand that Professional Development offerings, or lack there of, around Ed Tech played in this "failure," too. Just because we put a Smart or Promethean board in every school doesn't mean that it won't get written on with a dry erase marker or used only as an LCD projector instead of as the interactive device that it was designed to be...teacher training is essential in the success of ed tech integration.

    In response to Chris's last side this morning about a mobile "6th sense", I wanted to bring up Apple's "knowledge navigator" vision of an intelligent "personal agent from the late 1980's.  Tuesday morning, it's highly anticipated that Apple will introduce an "Assistant" derived from it's 2010 purchase of Siri Personal Assistant Software.  Some form of Chris '6th sense" agent may become reality tomorrow morning!

Augmented Reality: Not That Real Yet - BusinessWeek - 1 views

  • In theory, a service should be able to take your latitude, longitude, and orientation and tell you exactly what you are looking at.

    Alas, the data aren't nearly accurate enough for that.

  • There's an even bigger conceptual problem with augmented reality as it is used today by a variety of search apps such as the Layar Reality Browser, Wikitude World Browser, or Presselite's Bionic Eye.
  •  
    AR not ready for prime time because of inaccurate GPS data and apps that only provide information about locations within the user's line of sight.
