- The future digital life has a nice round up of augmented reality used for entertainment.
- While Augmented Planet has a round up of educational augmented reality applications.
- A group of students from the National University of Singapore have created a Simcity like (or rather Farmville like) augmented reality game. I'll stick with the non-augmented version for now.
- An interview with Zugara's CEO Matt Symczyk on the launch of their Fashionista application.
- I'm not sure why, but I really like this simple terrain generator, it's use of AR just seems natural.
“I started chatting with a very nice man in line with me at the deli near by office,” said Chicago resident Sue Spiches. “I was waiting for information about him to pop up on my contact lenses, but it never came. For all I know, he was a registered sex offender or a Mormon.”And this week's video comes to us from MindSpace Solutions a spinout company from Hit Lab NZ, which created a device called the Digital Binocular Station. Using extra sensitive sensors in the base station, this pair of binoculars can augmented a museum display (or any other room) in a way unmatched by any of their competitors, or at least that's what the video suggests. I'll have to visit New Zealand to try it out (here's my vote for holding ISMAR 2011 in New Zealand).
Have a great week!
