This makes the SZ magazine the first publication to enhance print media with the attractions and capabilities the digital world has to offer.
The Augmented Sculpture Project About the project (written by the creator, Pablo Valbuena): "This project is focused on the temporary quality of space, investigating space-time not only as a three dimensional environment, but as space in transformation. For this purpose two layers are produced that explore different aspects of the space-time reality. On the one hand the physical layer, which controls the real space and shapes the volumetric base that serves as support for the next level. The second level is a virtual projected layer that allows controlling the transformation and sequentiality of space-time. The blending of both levels gives the impression of physical geometry suitable of being transformed. The orverlapping produces a three-dimensional space augmented by a transformable layer suitable to be controlled, resulting in the capacity through the installation of altering multiple dimensions of space-time."

YDreams' Augmented Reality experience with depth-sensing camera YDreams augmented-reality platform supports depth-sensing cameras. These types of cameras make it possible to pinpoint the 3D position of the users (it supports multiple users) and objects in the environment, allowing for a true marker less augmented reality experience. The virtual objects added in the video stream react to the user as well as the real objects´ positions and movements. Unlike similar applications that use 2D cameras, this one is not sensitive to light changes, camera movements and noisy backgrounds. This is a simple demo to exemplify the user experience.

Kinect Augmented Reality hack with Doom 3 character "I decided to release my 3D reconstruction software, even though nobody will be able to compile it yet. The problem is that it's built on top of the Vrui VR toolkit, version 2.0, which is not released yet. But hopefully in a few days. At that point, it will definitely build on Linux, and probably on Mac OS X if you find a Mac version of the libusb-1.0 library (which I think exists). Until then, you can at least look at some of the algorithms -- which are not actually all that complicated. The software is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2, and can be downloaded from my R&D page: idav.ucdavis.edu " Original video:

Layar, worlds first mobile Augmented Reality browser Watch the new Layar 2011 video at -------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- The first mobile Augmented Reality browser premiers in the Netherlands Five Dutch content providers to participate in the worlds first AR browser AMSTERDAM, Tuesday June 16th, 2009. Mobile innovation company SPRXmobile launches Layar, worlds first mobile Augmented Reality browser, which displays real time digital information on top of reality (of) in the camera screen of the mobile phone. While looking through the phones camera lens, a user can see houses for sale, popular bars and shops, jobs, healthcare providers and ATMs. The first country to launch Layar is The Netherlands. Launching partners are local market leaders ING (bank), funda (realty website), Hyves (social network), Tempo-team (temp agency) and (healthcare provider). How it works Layar is derived from location based services and works on mobile phones that include a camera, GPS and a compass. Layar is first avaliable for handsets with the Android operating system (the G1 and HTC Magic). It works as follows Starting up the Layar application automatically activates the camera. The embedded GPS automatically knows the location of the phone and the compass determines in which direction the phone is facing. Each partner provides a set of location coordinates with relevant information which forms a digital layer. By tapping the side of the screen the ...

Keiichi Matsuda - Augmented City [in 3D] Update: Yay! Keiichi Matsuda (the author) has been so kind as to upload the official video in high quality with sound and yt3D enabled. Check it out along with his other works, definitely an artist to keep your eye on! Augmented reality is taken to the next, all-immersive level in Keiichi Matsuda's film, recently presented at London's 3D Film Festival at the Barbican. The architecture graduate and filmmaker has imagined a future world overlaid with digital information, whose built environment can be transformed at the touch of a few buttons. 'The architecture of the contemporary city is no longer simply about the physical space of buildings and landscape,' says Matsuda. 'More and more it is about the synthetic spaces created by digital information that we collect, consume and organise; an immersive interface may become as much part of the world we inhabit as the buildings around us.' By popular request: If you're looking for a new repost with sound and YouTube 3D click here: Theworld's first ever Immersive Technology Summit will be held at the Los Angeles Center Studios (LACS) on October 21st, 2010.

General Motors Augmented Reality Windshield General Motors has developed a working next-generation heads-up display that turns an ordinary windshield into an augmented reality information dashboard. Such a system can improve safety and advance knowledge behind the wheel, visually identifying important objects in physical space like road signs, the edges of the road you're on in conditions of poor visibility like fog, and even bring GPS functions right into the dashboard by outlining the exact building you're going to.

I'm loving this Iron Man 2 viral marketing stuff. Can hardly wait another week for the movie
Augmented (hyper)Reality: Domestic Robocop The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it. A film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture, part of a larger project about the social and architectural consequences of new media and augmented reality.

The 3DS' Wonderful Augmented Reality Games
ARhrrrr - An augmented reality shooter ARhrrrr is an augmented reality shooter for mobile camera-phones, created at Georgia Tech Augmented Environments Lab and the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD-Atlanta). The phone provides a window into a 3d town overrun with zombies. Point the camera at our special game map to mix virtual and real world content. Civilians are trapped in the town, and must escape before the zombies eat them! From your vantage point in a helicopter overhead, you must shoot the zombies to clear the path for the civilians to get out. Watch out though as the zombies will fight back, throwing bloody organs to bring down your copter. Move the phone quickly to dodge them. You can also use Skittles as tangible inputs to the game, placing one on the board and shooting it to trigger an explosion. One of the inspirations for this game was the game Joe Warpin, from our Handheld Augmented Reality games class (see ). www.cc.gatech.edu www.scad.edu
Augmented Reality for Maintenance and Repair As part of our exploration into the potential benefits of using AR for maintenance and repair, we designed, implemented, and user tested a prototype augmented reality application to support military mechanics conducting routine maintenance tasks inside an armored vehicle turret. Our prototype uses a tracked head-worn display to augment a mechanics natural view with text, labels, arrows, and animated sequences designed to facilitate task comprehension, location, and execution. A within-subject controlled user study examined professional military mechanics using our system to complete 18 common tasks under field conditions. These tasks included installing and removing fasteners and indicator lights, and connecting cables, all within the cramped interior of an armored personnel carrier turret. An augmented reality condition was tested against two baseline conditions: an untracked head-worn display with text and graphics and a fixed flat panel display representing an improved version of the laptop-based documentation currently employed in practice. The augmented reality condition allowed mechanics to locate tasks more quickly than when using either baseline, and in some instances, resulted in less overall head movement. A qualitative survey showed mechanics found the augmented reality condition intuitive and satisfying for the tested sequence of tasks.
