AR Business Card Request

TweetJames Alliban posted his augmented reality business card video on his blog.  This isn’t a new idea (I believe Ori’s the first person I’ve heard mention one, but he might know if anyone had done it earlier than that), but James shows his programming chops with the 3D video presentation of his credentials. I’m not …

Steal This Idea – Amusement Park Helper

TweetEarlier this week, I spent my day diving 310 feet at 93 miles per hour inclined at 82 degrees, virtually a high speed game of chicken with the ground. Really. Well, it really wasn’t a game of chicken.  I was on the Millenium Force, the world’s fastest rollercoaster ride, at Cedar Pointin Ohio and while my …

Steal This Idea – Save the World

TweetNow that not one, but two AR browsers are out: Layar (first scooped by Games Alfresco/Augmented Times) and Nokia’s “Point and Find“; its time to get cracking.  AR geospatial layers are a great way for non-profits and NGOs to help their cause.  Imagine being able to point your phone at a business to find out how …

But they do.  Some use games like World of Warcraft to stage their movies and others use animation and the really serious use amateur …

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 …

Steal This Idea!

TweetIt’s official.  I can’t get excited about AR marketing campaigns or AR products that don’t do anything.  I need an invisible creature on my desk that I can only see on my iPhone as much as I need a set of bowling pins.  But I’m not going to sit here and complain about that.  Instead …

Ori Inbar’s AR Presentation

TweetWhen I first started this blog a month ago, I was apprehensive if there would be enough material to write about in regards to augmented reality.  I thought I might be able to squeeze out a post twice a week, if I worked at it.  Lately, its all I can do to not post everyday, …
