New Open Source Augmented Reality Project

Earlier I reported on the unfortunate death of the AR android browser gamaray. The team of Clayton Lilly decided to stop the development and focus on other android/smartphone projects. Gamaray was the first open available android AR browser, that would superimpose 3D geometry to your view. Now the generous team has opened up their sources and put it all on […]

ISMAR Day 2

ISMAR is running and draws all attention and time. So, augmented reality blog postings are going down a bit for now, since everbody is just to busy being there physically. :-) As last year Ori Inbar writes a nice first impression collection on his website gamesalfresco. So I won’t quote from there, but encourage you to surf over to his […]

ISMAR 09 begins today!

If you don’t know the meaning of the acronym ISMAR then you must be pretty new to the Augmented Reality scene. But that’s okay! Don’t worry. The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality is the best place to get the latest news and tech demos for everything that is related to augmented reality. It should ring a bell by […]

Giant Hand to squash you in the street!

Chris O’Shea contacted me and pointed me to their website, that documents a neat street art installation, using some augmented reality in the broader sense. Take a look for yourself: a big screen in the pedestrian zone of Liverpool (so far) that shows a live feed of the street. A digital mirror to see yourself from bird’s eye perspective. But […]

Designing for Augmented Reality

Lee Brimelow from Adobe’s flash/flex/air department talks at Adobe’s Max 2009 about the usage of Flartoolkit and Papervision to create Flash Augmented Reality applications. So if you are interested in Flash AR development, but somehow never understood the workflow or how the matrix convertion works or just feel like watching a 60 minutes video on this topic, go ahead and […]

To pass the time…

Just a short one – while waiting for the ISMAR 2009 I recommend looking around at some work thats out there: E.g. a new AR browser will hit the marketplace from Apple, allowing once more the overlay of wikipedia entries, cyclopedia. Nothing fancy new to see, though. But I hope that it will one day be as easy as this […]

mobile focus and AR zombies at a great metaio fair

Yesterday metaio held their annual fair to show us their new developments and technologies live and interactively with the biggest fair they set up so far. 200 registered AR enthusiasts stormed their bright new offices to be overwhelmed with marker symbols, markeless tracking, applications, concepts and hardware presentations. I consider the day at their headquarters a big success and a […]

Flyar to augment your twittering

Another short update on a fun application from ydreams comes to your desktop for free: look at your screen as if it where a mirror (virtual mirror) and see floating birds chirping your twitter feeds out. Move them away through gestures and enjoy. Gestures feel more like a bit chaotic PlayStation-EyeToy-waving and I don’t see added value for twitter besides […]

Bummer

Dear AR-Community, two bad news for AR and me floating in today. First, Gamaray announced to stop developing their 3D-AR-Android-Browser. Due to the hard competition, e.g. Layar3D and the missing USP for gamaray now, they don’t see much use in putting effort into their technology. I hope, that Clayton Lilly and his team will have success with their other Android […]
