ISMAR09 is less than a month away and I’m getting excited about attending (though I wish I could be there for the full week.)  This year’s conference looks to be the best one yet. 

While the industry is gazing longingly to the future, there’s still a lot to learn from past ISMAR conferences.  The conference organizers have been uploading old videos from past events and it’s interesting to see how the concepts haven’t changed, but the technology has gotten better.  

I won’t even begin to claim that I understand the abstract titles, so just look at the pretty pictures and don’t try to make sense of all the fifty cent words.  Consider that most of these videos hail from the year 2004.
