AR T-Shirt Fitting Room

TweetWhile this video is from last fall, I hadn’t seen it before, so I wanted to put it up because it shows high-quality augmented reality for a “Magic T-Shirt” fitting room.  The technology hails from the scientists at the Fraunhofer Instituite for Telecommunications (HHI).  These are the same scientists that brought us the mp3 format.  The application is remarkable […]

Augmented Reality Bikini

TweetIn this video an AR bikini is pasted over the model showcasing a manually selected marker.  The video isn’t doesn’t show much new, but I’m curious about the software kit shown.  It looks like user-friendly AR software in development since the title is called BubbleGum Tattoo v0.1.  If you recognize the software, please comment, or send […]

Ghostwire AR Game

TweetThe Swedish Game studio A Different World has brought the award-winning AR game Ghostwire to the Nintendo DSi.  The move to the platform of the DSi should help bring AR games to kids and gain a wider audience for the technology.  While this seven month old video shows the game on a cellphone, the concept […]


TweetI’m typing this post on my kids computer since my motherboard crashed on mine.  I had some more in-depth posts planned, but until I can get my computer up and running (new MB is currently installed and now partitioning the hard drive), I’m just going to throw out some interesting links.  Hopefully tomorow I can […]

Steal This Idea – The Marble Run

TweetIf you’ve ever bought a marble run, rollercoaster or any other type of plastic track that requires hours of set up and falls to pieces at the wrong touch, then you’ll appreciate this idea.  Last week, my wife and kids set up a marble run in our living room.  It took hours to set up […]

Core Tools for Augmented Reality

TweetIn this video Simon Wynda (I’m guessing at the spelling) gives a Core Tools for Augmented Reality demo.  This demo was featured at the Microsoft Research Cambridge Lab on May 6th. Simon demonstrates a geospatial AR application that recognizes its location from images and GPS data.  Location notes are annotated in the view in one […]

The Path to Augmented Vision

TweetAugmented Vision will be available in 2015. Am I prophetic?  Delusional?  Or merely guessing?  How does an deluded prophetic hand-waving guess sound? The reality is the development of complex systems like Augmented Vision will take something more than putting the various technologies together.  AV will require a change in the zeitgeist similar to the iPhone.  […]

Augmented Reality Primer

TweetI’ve been wanting to do a nice post showing the basics of augmented reality for those that might be new to the technology, but Rusty has saved me the trouble by making this nice post explaining the basics.  I’m going to expand on his AR primer.  Rusty breaks down his three components of augmented reality: […]

SREngine’s Item Recognition

TweetRouli at the Augmented Times found an interesting AR project from a Japanese developer, Sein Kanemura.   The key facet of his engine is that it is markerless.  While I couldn’t quite pick up the exact method of his markerless technology, I’m going to make a couple of guesses.  I would assume it uses the GPS […]
