TweetLife is random and full of amusement. Had a busy, productive week for the current novel project about Alexandria. Added a few posts to Games Alfresco–one about a new AR RPG called Traveller and another about an interactive billboard. Also, The Digital Sea got a nice review from the Literary R&R. And last, because I […]
Tweet…but not here. Trying a little something different with some of my augmented reality posts. Going to just single post some of them over on Games Alfresco, especially the video heavy ones like this. With a little help from Ori (well, a LOT of help), I put up a listing of many of the current […]
TweetIn my dream world, the Kinect system wouldn’t be tethered to the XBox 360. Instead, it would hook to the TV and have an extensive app library like the iPhone. Sweet spot around 1:25 for a ninja vanish move. The Kinect makes invisibility so easy, it’s mind-boggling. And better work on your arm endurance.
TweetTwo years ago, in 2009, augmented reality took its first steps into mainstream consciousness. This last year, 2010, we’ve seen augmented reality really expand into new formats and across spectra. Like I did last year, I’m going to review month-by-month the mishaps and happenings of augmented reality in 2010. This year the task seems more imposing […]
TweetThe last year the augmented reality movement has been accelerating at an ever increasing pace as new applications and companies are forming so fast it’s hard to keep up. The addition of the Kinect sensor has given the technology an even bigger power boost and now I can barely keep up with just the Kinect […]
Tweet Playing games is intrinsic to our nature, so naturally, gaming is a great introduction to augmented reality. Below are three different ways augmented reality is being used to get our gaming fix. AR Invaders Shooter games were the first breakout, relatively speaking, for the nascent technology. Yet I haven’t yet seen one that eliminates […]
Tweet While Microsoft denies that the Xbox has been hacked, pure semantics I tell you, the new Kinect system has been unleashed for uses other than the ones planned by the giant of the redwoods. Adafruit Industries offered a $3,000 prize which was collected by “Hector” for completing the task. The hacking was important enough to get […]
TweetThe production values on these indie game trailers boggle my mind. The game initially reminds me of Conquest, but with a lot more bells and whistles. Clover Studios has brought together location based gaming and tower defense, which makes for a good peanut butter and chocolate combination. Though with any multi-player strategy game, off-time […]
TweetWe’re probably at least five years away from something like this, but it sure does look fun.
TweetWhile I’m probably not going to be playing Balloon Burst from Popcode obsessively like I do Civ 5 on the PS3, the game is much better than the floating pixel games of six months ago (I’m looking at you Firefighter 360.) Still, I’m looking forward to that innovative AR game that I just can’t put down. Keep at […]
