Weekly Augmented Reality Linkfest

This week in the linkfest - computer vision, Easter bunnies and furniture:
  • "Augmented Reality for Smartphones" is a 50 pages-long report that analyzes many popular AR platforms in order to give developers better perspective on what's available in the market today.
  • Computer vision (1): Thomas K. Carpenter warns us against its dangers.
  • Computer vision (2): Raimo van der Klein gives an excellent talk on why computer vision, like biological vision at the time, will start an evolutionary arms race - Birth of the Digital Eye.
  • Computer vision (3): IQ Engines is a cool startup, offering "vision as a service". I've tried their mobile application, and it is amazing at recognizing objects - but also usually slow, because it is still partially based on humans behind the scenes.
  • Fraunhofer presents an eye-tracking microdisplay that delivers Terminator vision (via @Ben_Thomas_Ech).
  • Oh noes! Giant Easter bunnies invade the Earth!
  • Finally, if you ever find yourself confused by IKEA's instructions, there will be an app for that (maybe).
This week's video was featured on Bruce Sterling's Beyond the Beyond, but if you missed it, here's your opportunity. It's in French, and depicts a modern fairy tale, made possible by augmented reality. Luckily you don't need to know French to follow the story, and I find it only adding to the video's allure. (However, I'll be thankful if you can translate the old guy at the end of the video in the comments).

Happy Easter/Passover!
