Bruce Sterling Is Wrong About Augmented Reality

TweetBruce Sterling is wrong about Augmented Reality. First off, I want to express that I have the utmost respect for Bruce Sterling as both a writer and a visionary.  As a longtime fan of cyberpunk and science fiction in general, Bruce has been a part of the pantheon of authors I regularly visit.  And as […]

A Short AR Movie: Réalité Augmentée

TweetSome of you might have seen this on Games Alfresco or Bruce Sterling’s Beyond the Beyond, but I thought it was worth a mention here.  Réalité Augmentée is a short low-budget movie about a haunted AR phone, or the dangers of technology, or it’s as Rouli suggests–a modern techno-fairytale.  Watch and decide for yourself.  The […]

Augmented Reality Year in Review – 2010

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 […]

New Story – Sagan’s Law

TweetI sold this story two years ago.  It was my first story on augmented reality and when the rights reverted back to me a few months ago, I wanted to give people a chance to read it again. Looking back on it, I see the influences of Gibson and our very own augmented reality prophet, […]

Gonzo-Reality

TweetThe story Bruce Sterling posted up last week on his Wired blog blew my mind.  It shouldn’t have really.  But I guess I’ve been considering augmented reality and its commercial uses to be official and sanctioned.  This kind of unofficial gonzo-view of reality could go a long way. First, if you’re too lazy to click the link and check […]

10 Cool Things Going On Right Now in Augmented Reality

TweetAugmented reality has come a long way in a years time.  Last year I got excited by research projects and gimmicky AR webcam advertising, but that quickly faded on the tenth plus iteration.  It wasn’t until July that we starting having real AR products in the form of apps.  Nearly a year later and still […]

The Feed – Novel and Concept Video

TweetBack in early fall of 2009, with help from Bruce Sterling, I put together a list of augmented reality novels. I’ve added a few since the original, but further additions have been sparse (at least until I can find a publisher for my own.) So this concept video based on the novel Feed by MT […]
